Linux is an Operating System, which is not that widely used for desktop machines, but is one of the most frequently used OSs for servers. It is absolutely free, so you will not need to pay any license fees as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is additionally thought of as the most risk-free Operating System out there and due to the permissions that files have along with the file types that can be run, virus files which can infect a regular computer system shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Moreover, the Operating System is absolutely free, so it can be customized without any limits, so as to match the needs of the hosting company and their customers. This implies that unneeded software packages can be removed to make the OS lighter and quicker, that may directly lead to much better hosting server performance. A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, due to the fact that this application is also 100 % free, fast and reliable. It's the most widely used web server available and is an element of the LAMP bundle that numerous script apps, such as Joomla and WordPress, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
