Linux is an Operating System, which isn't that commonly used for desktop machines, but is one of the most widely used OSs for web servers. It's totally free, so you won't need to pay any license charges as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is additionally regarded as the most risk-free OS nowadays and thanks to the permissions which files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files that could infect a standard PC will simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. In addition, the Operating System is absolutely free, so it can easily be modified with no restrictions, in order to meet the needs of the hosting provider and their customers. This also means that unneeded software packages could be removed to make the OS lighter and faster, which can directly lead to far better hosting server performance. Numerous Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, as this software is also absolutely free, quick and stable. It is the most commonly used web server out there and is a 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.
