Linux is an OS, that isn't that common for desktop machines, but is amongst the most widely used OSs for servers. It's free of charge, so you will not have to pay any license costs as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is also thought of as the most secure OS these days and due to the permissions that files have as well as the file types that can be run, virus files which could infect a regular computer shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. In addition, the Operating System is free, so it can be customized without any limitations, so as to suit the needs of the website hosting provider and their customers. This implies that unwanted software packages can be removed to make the OS lighter and a lot quicker, which can directly lead to far better server performance. Lots of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, due to the fact that this software is also totally free, fast and secure. It's the most frequently used web server around and is an element of the LAMP bundle that a great many script applications, such as Joomla™ and WordPress, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
