Linux is an OS, that isn't that common for desktop machines, but is one of the most frequently used OSs for web servers. It is 100 % free, so you won't need to pay any license charges as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is furthermore regarded as being the most risk-free OS available and because of the permissions that files have along with the file types that can be run, virus files which can infect a regular computer system will simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. In addition, the OS is absolutely free, so it can easily be changed without any limitations, so that it will meet the needs of the website hosting provider and their clients. This also implies that unneeded software packages can be removed to make the OS lighter and faster, which could directly lead to a lot better hosting server performance. Numerous Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, due to the fact that this software is also free, fast and secure. It's the most widely used web server available and is an element of the LAMP bundle that many script apps, such as WordPress and Joomla™, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
