Ubuntu is a widespread desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting really popular as well. The main reason is that the operating system is very light and it can function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you will discover plenty of resources online. Among the basic advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it has thousands of software packages which can be easily customized in accordance with your needs and the needs of the applications which you intend to run, not to mention that you will not 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 can't be changed.
