Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it can function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a protected and stable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any issue or have any question, you will find lots of resources on the net. Among the key benefits of this Operating System is that it includes thousands of software packages that can be easily adjusted according to your needs as well as the needs of the applications which you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
