Linux is an OS, which is not that commonly used for desktop machines, but is among the most popular OSs for web servers. It is absolutely free, so you shall not have to pay any license charges as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is additionally considered to be the most risk-free OS available and because of the permissions that files have and the file types that can be run, virus files which could infect an average computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Moreover, the OS is totally free, so it can easily be customized with no limitations, as a way to suit the requirements of the hosting provider and their clients. This also suggests that needless software packages may be removed to make the OS lighter and quicker, which could directly result in significantly better server performance. Lots of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, due to the fact that this piece of software is also totally free, quick and stable. It's the most frequently used web server around and is part of the LAMP bundle that many script applications, such as Joomla™ and WordPress, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

accounts are set up on a cutting-edge specialized platform. An independent cluster of servers looks after every service - databases, e-mail messages, files, etcetera., and considering the fact that we highly prize the pros of a custom-made, protected and reliable OS, all the web servers which comprise the clusters run Linux. The OS enables us to make the necessary changes, not to mention the increased speed, for the reason that only 1 type of process runs on the web server, in contrast to the regular website hosting platform made available from most companies in which everything runs on a single machine. In addition, we use the Apache web server too. We've examined its capabilities over the years, so we have confirmed that it could give us as a provider and you as a customer the wanted speed and overall flexibility for the best achievable site performance.
