Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting very popular as well. The reason is the fact that the OS is really light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will discover a number of resources online. One of the major advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it comes with a large number of software packages which can be freely adjusted according to your needs and / or the requirements of the apps which you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
