Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting very popular as well.

Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you should have a secure and stable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, which means that if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll find lots of resources on the Internet. Among the main benefits of this Operating System is that it comes with a great number of software packages which can be freely changed in accordance with your needs and / or the requirements of the apps that you would 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 program code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
