Linux is an Operating System, that is not that commonly used for desktop machines, but is one of the most widely used OSs for web servers. It is absolutely free, so you will not need to pay any license charges as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is also thought of as the most risk-free Operating System available and because of the permissions that files have along with the file types that can be run, virus files that may infect a normal personal computer shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Also, the Operating System is totally free, so it can be customized with no limitations, in order to satisfy the requirements of the web hosting provider and their clients. This also suggests that needless software packages can easily be removed to make the Operating system lighter and swifter, which can directly lead to a lot better server performance. A large number of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, due to the fact that this application is also absolutely free, fast and secure. It is the most commonly used web server around and is part of the LAMP bundle that numerous script apps, such as Joomla™ and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
