Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting very popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it'll function on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you'll discover numerous resources on the net. Among the major advantages of this OS is that it features a great number of software packages which can be easily changed according to your needs as well as the needs of the applications which you intend to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all.
