Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a secure and dependable software environment on your website hosting server at all times.

One of the key benefits of this OS is the fact that it includes thousands of software packages which can be easily customized according to your needs and / or the needs of the apps that you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at all. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
