Linux is an OS, that isn't that commonly used for desktop machines, but is among the most widely used OSs for servers. It's absolutely free, so you shall not need to pay any license fees as part of your hosting payments. Linux is furthermore thought to be the most risk-free OS available and due to the permissions that files have as well as the file types that can be run, virus files which may infect a regular PC shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Also, the Operating System is free, so it could be customized with no constraints, in order to meet the needs of the web hosting company and their clients. This also suggests that unwanted software packages can be removed to make the Operating system lighter and quicker, which can directly contribute to far better server performance. Numerous Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, because this program is also free, fast and secure. It is the most commonly used web server around and is an element of the LAMP bundle that a lot of script applications, such as WordPress and Joomla, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
