Ubuntu is a widespread desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting really popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it can run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, so if you experience any difficulty or have any question, you will discover a number of resources online. Among the key advantages of this OS is the fact that it includes a great number of software packages that can be freely customized in accordance with your needs and the needs of the apps that you wish 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 is not accessible, thus it can't be changed.
