Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting pretty popular too. The main reason is the fact that the OS is amazingly light and it'll function on almost any 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 a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on earth, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you will discover a number of resources online. Among the basic benefits of this OS is the fact that it contains a great number of software packages which can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the apps which you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, thus it cannot be changed.
