Ubuntu is a widespread desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting very popular as well. The reason is that the OS is very light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, so if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you will discover a number of resources on the web. One of the key benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it has numerous software packages that can be easily adjusted 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 kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, thus it can't be changed.
