Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting very popular too. The reason is that the OS is very light and it'll function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you will discover lots of resources online. One of the main advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it includes a large number of software packages that can be easily changed according to your needs as well as the requirements of the apps that you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
