Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting very popular too. The reason is that the OS is extremely light and it can function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will discover a number of resources on the web. Among the main benefits of this Operating System is that it contains a great number of software packages that can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the apps which you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
