Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting quite popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it will run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you will find plenty of resources online. One of the key advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it features numerous software packages that can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the apps which you'd like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.
