Ubuntu - the Linux Distribution which started small and is already one of the most preferred Operating Systems available. Read more about its pros and cons.
Ubuntu is one of the most widespread Linux releases for desktop machines, but the Operating System also has a server edition, which has been gaining popularity these days. Ubuntu is extremely fast and supports multiple hardware components, so it can function on pretty much every server not using a lot of system resources. The OS is widely known as pretty reliable and secure, plus due to its popularity, you will find numerous sources online with information about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, so you're able to get security patches without worrying about softwaretroubles over time. Since Ubuntu is free to use, you'll be able to modify both its core and the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and install in any way you see fit, with no restrictions and without any license fees. In this way, you can receive a quick, dependable and powerful hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.
