Linux is an OS, which isn't that popular for desktop machines, but is amongst the most popular OSs for web servers. It is free of charge, so you won't need to pay any license costs as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is additionally thought to be the most secure Operating System nowadays and due to the permissions which files have and the file types that can be run, virus files that could infect an average PC shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Also, the Operating System is 100 % free, so it can be modified with no restrictions, in order to match the requirements of the web hosting provider and their customers. This also implies that unwanted software packages may be removed to make the OS lighter and much faster, that can directly lead to much better hosting server performance. Numerous Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, since this piece of software is also free, quick and reliable. It's the most widely used web server out there and is an element of the LAMP bundle that many script apps, like WordPress and Joomla, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
