Linux is an OS, that isn't that widely used for desktop machines, but is amongst the most commonly used OSs for web servers. It's free of charge, so you will not need to pay any license costs as part of your hosting payments. Linux is additionally considered to be the most risk-free Operating System available and because of the permissions which files have as well as the file types that can be run, virus files which can easily infect a standard computer system will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Additionally, the Operating System is totally free, so it can be altered without any constraints, as a way to meet the requirements of the website hosting provider and their clients. This also means that needless software packages can be removed to make the Operating system lighter and faster, that may directly contribute to significantly better server performance. Numerous Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, because this piece of software is also free, fast and stable. It is the most widely used web server available and is a part of the LAMP bundle that a lot of script apps, such as WordPress and Joomla™, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
