Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting pretty popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is extremely light and it'll run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any issue or have any question, you'll find lots of resources on the net. One of the key benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it comes with a great number of software packages which can be easily modified in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the apps that you need to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
