Linux is an Operating System, that isn't that frequently used for desktop machines, but is among the most frequently 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 to be the most risk-free Operating System nowadays and because of the permissions that files have along with the file types that can be run, virus files that can infect a standard PC will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Furthermore, the Operating System is totally free, so it could be modified without any limits, in order to match the needs of the hosting company and their customers. This implies that needless software packages may be removed to make the Operating system lighter and swifter, which can directly contribute to significantly better hosting server performance. Lots of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, since this application is also totally free, quick and reliable. It's the most commonly used web server available and is a part of the LAMP bundle that a lot of script apps, like Joomla™ and WordPress, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
