Linux is an Operating System, that isn't that frequently used for desktop machines, but is one of the most popular OSs for web servers. It is totally free, so you will not have to pay any license costs as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is furthermore regarded as the most secure Operating System these days and thanks to the permissions which files have along with the file types that can be run, virus files that may infect an average PC will simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Furthermore, the Operating System is 100 % free, so it could be customized with no limits, so as to match the requirements of the website hosting company and their customers. This also suggests that unwanted software packages may be removed to make the OS lighter and swifter, which can directly lead to significantly better server performance. A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, because this application is also totally free, quick and stable. It's the most popular web server out there and is part of the LAMP bundle that a lot of script apps, including WordPress and Joomla™, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've decided to use Linux on our machines also, due to the fact that no other Operating System can match its adaptability and without it, we wouldn't have had the means to create our custom web hosting platform in which all semi-dedicated server
accounts are set up. The platform includes massive groups of servers, each dealing with a specific part of the web hosting service - databases, email messages, files, the Control Panel, and so forth. The consequence of blending this custom setup with Linux is a very stable, protected and quick service with basically no downtime. What's more, the web access is managed by Apache, simply because it's remarkably customizable and supports a whole lot of modules and web programming languages including PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, etcetera. Our semi-dedicated server plans will give you all the speed and security that you would like for your Internet sites and we've made many software tweaks to make sure that we'll meet our uptime guarantee.
