Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is that the OS is amazingly light and it'll function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you will have a secure and dependable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you will discover a number of resources on the web. Among the main advantages of this Operating System is the fact that it comes with a great number of software packages which can be freely changed in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the apps that you want to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, thus it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers
