All in all, Ubuntu is a well-maintained and efficient operating system for web hosting servers; it’s powerful and secure without being obtrusive.

Can I use Ubuntu as a server? The short, short, short answer is: Yes. You can use Ubuntu Desktop as a server. And yes, you can install LAMP in your Ubuntu Desktop environment. It will dutifully hand out web pages to anyone who hits the IP address of your system.
Is Ubuntu Server free to use? Yes. Like the desktop version, Ubuntu Server is free to download and use. However, if you’re using it for business-related purposes and can’t afford for issues to affect the running, support packages are available from developers. If you prefer to manage the support of the server in-house, that is also an option.
