Linux is an OS, that is not that frequently used for desktop machines, but is among the most widely used OSs for servers. It is free of charge, so you shall not need to pay any license charges as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is also regarded as the most secure Operating System around and due to the permissions which files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files which may infect a standard PC will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Additionally, the Operating System is totally free, so it can easily be modified with no constraints, as a way to match the requirements of the hosting provider and their clients. This also suggests that needless software packages can be removed to make the Operating system lighter and swifter, that can directly result in significantly better hosting server performance. Lots of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, due to the fact that this piece of software is also absolutely free, fast and secure. It's the most widely used web server around and is part of the LAMP bundle that numerous script apps, such as WordPress and Joomla, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
