Linux is an OS, that is not that commonly used for desktop machines, but is among the most widely used OSs for web servers. It is free of charge, so you won't need to pay any license costs as part of your hosting payments. Linux is furthermore regarded as the most secure Operating System available and because of the permissions which files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files that can easily infect a regular computer system will simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. In addition, the Operating System is totally free, so it can easily be customized without any limits, so as to meet the requirements of the website hosting company and their clients. This suggests that unwanted software packages may be removed to make the Operating system lighter and much faster, that can directly result in far better server performance. Numerous Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, since this application is also free, quick and reliable. It is the most commonly used web server around and is a part of the LAMP bundle that lots of script applications, such as Joomla™ and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
