Ubuntu is one of the most widespread Linux distributions for desktop computers, but the OS also has a server version, that has been gaining popularity nowadays. Ubuntu is very fast and supports various hardware components, so it can work on virtually every server not consuming too much system resources. The OS is considered to be really reliable and secure, not to mention that due to its popularity, you'll find lots of sources online with info about any question or problem that you may have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, so you're able to get security patches without worrying about softwareissues in the long term. As Ubuntu is free to use, you're able to modify both its core and the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and install in any way you see fit, devoid of limitations and without paying any license fees. In this way, you can obtain a quick, stable and powerful web hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
