Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you will have a safe and dependable software environment on your hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will discover a number of resources online. One of the key advantages of this OS is that it features tens of thousands of software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the apps which you would like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at all.
