Linux is an OS, which isn't that common for desktop machines, but is one of the most frequently used OSs for servers. It's absolutely free, so you will not need to pay any license fees as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is additionally considered to be the most risk-free OS nowadays and due to the permissions that files have along with the file types that can be run, virus files which can infect a standard personal computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Moreover, the Operating System is absolutely free, so it can easily be customized without any restrictions, in order to satisfy the needs of the website hosting company and their clients. This also suggests that needless software packages can be removed to make the Operating system lighter and swifter, that can directly contribute to far better server performance. Many Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, due to the fact that this program is also totally free, quick and stable. It is the most commonly used web server around and is part of the LAMP bundle that many script applications, such as WordPress and Joomla, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

The OS enables us to make the critical improvements, not to mention the higher speed, for the reason that only 1 type of process runs on the hosting server, contrary to the conventional web hosting platform provided by most companies where everything runs on one machine. Furthermore, we use the Apache web server also. We have tested its capabilities over the years, so we have confirmed that it could give us as a provider and you as a client the desired speed and flexibility for the best possible website performance.
