Linux is an Operating System, which is not that frequently used for desktop machines, but is among the most popular OSs for web servers. It's free of charge, so you won't need to pay any license fees as part of your hosting payments. Linux is furthermore regarded as the most reliable OS these days and because of the permissions which files have along with the file types that can be run, virus files that can infect an average personal computer shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Furthermore, the OS is freeware, so it could be altered with no constraints, in order to suit the requirements of the hosting provider and their customers. This implies that unneeded software packages can be removed to make the Operating system lighter and swifter, that can directly result in much better hosting server performance. A large number of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, as this piece of software is also 100 % free, quick and stable. It's the most popular web server available and is a part of the LAMP bundle that numerous script apps, like Joomla and WordPress, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
