Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you should have a secure and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you'll find numerous resources online. One of the main benefits of this OS is the fact that it comes with a large number of software packages that can be easily modified according to your needs and / or the needs of the apps that you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
