Linux is an Operating System, which isn't that widely used for desktop machines, but is one of the most widely used OSs for servers. It's totally free, so you will not need to pay any license charges as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is also thought to be the most reliable OS these days and thanks to the permissions which files have and the file types that can be run, virus files which can infect a regular personal computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Furthermore, the OS is 100 % free, so it can be customized without any restrictions, in order to meet the needs of the website hosting provider and their customers. This also suggests that unwanted software packages may be removed to make the Operating system lighter and swifter, which can directly result in far better server performance. A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, due to the fact that this program is also absolutely free, quick and stable. It is the most widely used web server around and is part of the LAMP bundle that lots of script apps, like Joomla™ and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
