Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is extremely light and it will run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you should have a secure and stable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you will find lots of resources online. Among the basic benefits of this OS is the fact that it comes with a great number of software packages that can be easily modified in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the apps which you would like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
