Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting quite popular too. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it'll run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which warrants that you should have a secure and stable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will discover numerous resources on the Internet. One of the main advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it contains a large number of software packages which can be easily customized according to your needs and / or the needs of the apps which you want to run, not to mention that you will not 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, which means that it cannot be changed.
