Ubuntu is a preferred 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 really light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your web hosting server all of the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you'll find numerous resources online. One of the key benefits of this OS is that it contains a great number of software packages which can be easily modified in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the apps that 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, therefore it cannot be changed.
