Linux is an OS, which is not that widely used for desktop machines, but is among the most widely used OSs for servers. It's 100 % free, so you will not have to pay any license costs as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is additionally considered to be the most secure OS these days and because of the permissions that files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files which can easily infect a regular computer system will simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Also, the Operating System is freeware, so it can be altered without any constraints, in order to suit the requirements of the website hosting company and their clients. This suggests that unneeded software packages could be removed to make the OS lighter and quicker, that may directly result in much better server performance. Numerous Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, due to the fact that this program is also totally free, quick and secure. It is the most widely used web server around and is part of the LAMP bundle that numerous script applications, like WordPress and Joomla™, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
