Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting very popular too. The main reason is that the OS is very light and it will function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you will have a safe and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you will find plenty of resources on the net. One of the basic benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it contains tens of thousands of software packages that can be freely customized according to your needs and the requirements of the applications which you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
