Linux is an Operating System, which isn't that popular for desktop machines, but is amongst the most frequently used OSs for servers. It is totally free, so you shall not need to pay any license fees as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is furthermore thought of as the most risk-free Operating System around and because of the permissions which files have as well as the file types that can be run, virus files that can infect a normal personal computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Additionally, the OS is free, so it can easily be changed with no limitations, so as to suit the requirements of the hosting provider and their customers. This implies that unwanted software packages can easily be removed to make the OS lighter and faster, which can directly contribute to a lot better server performance. A large number of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, because this software is also totally free, quick and reliable. It is the most commonly used web server out there and is an element of the LAMP bundle that many script apps, like Joomla™ and WordPress, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
