Ubuntu is a widely used desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting really popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is amazingly light and it can function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you will have a protected and dependable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you'll discover lots of resources on the Internet. Among the major benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it contains a great number of software packages which can be easily customized in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the applications that you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
