Linux is an OS, that isn't that commonly used for desktop machines, but is amongst the most popular OSs for servers. It's free of charge, so you shall not have to pay any license charges as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is additionally regarded as the most secure Operating System out there and because of the permissions which files have as well as the file types that can be run, virus files that may infect an average computer system will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Moreover, the Operating System is 100 % free, so it can easily be altered with no restrictions, as a way to match the needs of the hosting company and their customers. This also suggests that needless software packages may be removed to make the Operating system lighter and quicker, that may directly lead to significantly better hosting server performance. A large number of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, as this program is also totally free, fast and stable. It's the most commonly used web server out there and is a part of the LAMP bundle that many script applications, such as WordPress and Joomla, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
