Ubuntu is a preferred desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular as well. The reason is the fact that the operating system is really light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll discover lots of resources online. One of the basic advantages of this Operating System is that it contains a large number of software packages which can be freely adjusted in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the applications which you'd like 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 code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
