Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting pretty popular too. The reason is that the OS is amazingly light and it can function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a secure and stable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you'll discover numerous resources on the net. Among the major advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it includes tens of thousands of software packages that can be easily customized in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the applications which you'd like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
