Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you should have a risk-free and dependable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you will find numerous resources on the net.

In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.
