Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular too. The reason is that the operating system is really light and it'll function on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities in the world, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will find numerous resources on the net. One of the main benefits of this OS is the fact that it features tens of thousands of software packages that can be freely changed according to your needs as well as the requirements of the apps which you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
