Linux is an OS, which isn't that popular for desktop machines, but is among the most widely used OSs for servers. It is totally free, so you shall not need to pay any license fees as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is furthermore thought to be the most reliable Operating System these days and because of the permissions that files have along with the file types that can be run, virus files that may infect an average PC will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. In addition, the OS is free, so it can easily be altered without any limits, so that it will meet the requirements of the hosting company and their clients. This also means that unwanted software packages could be removed to make the Operating system lighter and quicker, which can directly contribute to much better hosting server performance. A large number of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, since this piece of software is also absolutely free, quick and secure. It is the most commonly used web server around and is an element of the LAMP bundle that numerous script applications, like WordPress and Joomla™, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
