Linux is an Operating System, that is not that commonly used for desktop machines, but is one of the most popular OSs for web servers. It is 100 % free, so you will not need to pay any license charges as part of your hosting payments. Linux is also considered to be the most risk-free OS these days and due to the permissions which files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files that can easily infect a normal PC will simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Additionally, the OS is absolutely free, so it could be changed with no constraints, so as to satisfy the needs of the hosting company and their clients. This also implies that unnecessary software packages may be removed to make the OS lighter and swifter, that can directly result in much better hosting server performance. Numerous Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, as this piece of software is also absolutely free, quick and secure. It is the most widely used web server available and is an element of the LAMP bundle that a great many script applications, such as WordPress and Joomla, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
