Linux is an Operating System, that isn't that frequently used for desktop machines, but is amongst the most popular OSs for web servers. It's totally free, so you will not have to pay any license costs as part of your hosting payments. Linux is also regarded as the most reliable OS nowadays and thanks to the permissions which files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files which could infect a normal personal computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Also, the Operating System is free, so it could be altered with no constraints, so that it will suit the needs of the web hosting company and their clients. This suggests that unwanted software packages can be removed to make the OS lighter and swifter, that can directly lead to much better hosting server performance. Lots of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, since this piece of software is also totally free, quick and reliable. It's the most commonly used web server available and is an element of the LAMP bundle that numerous script applications, including WordPress and Joomla™, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
