The main reason is the fact that the operating system is amazingly light and it can function on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you'll discover numerous resources on the Internet.

In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their code is not accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
