Linux is an OS, which is not that popular for desktop machines, but is one of the most widely used OSs for servers. It is totally free, so you shall not need to pay any license costs as part of your hosting payments. Linux is additionally regarded as being the most secure OS these days and due to the permissions which files have as well as the file types that can be run, virus files which could infect a regular PC shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Also, the OS is 100 % free, so it can be changed with no limitations, so as to suit the requirements of the website hosting company and their customers. This also suggests that unwanted software packages could be removed to make the Operating system lighter and faster, which could directly result in much better server performance. Lots of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, as this piece of software is also totally free, quick and stable. It is the most widely used web server available and is an element of the LAMP bundle that many script apps, including Joomla and WordPress, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
