Linux is an Operating System, that is not that commonly used for desktop machines, but is one of the most frequently used OSs for web servers. It's free of charge, so you won't have to pay any license fees as part of your hosting payments. Linux is furthermore considered to be the most reliable OS these days and because of the permissions which files have and the file types that can be run, virus files that could infect a regular computer system will simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Also, the Operating System is 100 % free, so it could be changed with no limitations, as a way to suit the requirements of the hosting company and their clients. This implies that unnecessary software packages can be removed to make the OS lighter and a lot quicker, which could directly lead to a lot better hosting server performance. Numerous Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, because this piece of software is also absolutely free, quick and stable. It is the most popular web server available and is part of the LAMP bundle that many script applications, including Joomla and WordPress, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
