Linux is an Operating System, that isn't that popular for desktop machines, but is amongst the most popular OSs for web servers. It is absolutely free, so you won't need to pay any license fees as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is also regarded as the most reliable Operating System out there and because of the permissions which files have and the file types that can be run, virus files which may infect a normal PC shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Also, the Operating System is 100 % free, so it could be customized with no limitations, as a way to match the requirements of the website hosting company and their clients. This also suggests that unneeded software packages may be removed to make the Operating system lighter and faster, which can directly result in significantly better server performance. Numerous Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, since this piece of software is also totally free, fast and secure. It is the most commonly used web server available and is 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.
