Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting really popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is really light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you will discover lots of resources on the net. Among the basic benefits of this OS is that it has a large number of software packages which can be freely adjusted in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the applications that you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.
