Linux is an OS, which is not that frequently used for desktop machines, but is among the most widely used OSs for servers. It is free of charge, so you shall not have to pay any license fees as part of your hosting payments. Linux is furthermore thought to be the most risk-free OS these days and thanks to the permissions which files have as well as the file types that can be run, virus files which could infect an average PC will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Furthermore, the Operating System is totally free, so it can be modified with no limitations, in order to satisfy the requirements of the hosting company and their clients. This also suggests that needless software packages can be removed to make the Operating system lighter and quicker, which can directly result in far better hosting server performance. A large number of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, since this application is also free, fast and secure. It's the most frequently used web server out there and is a part of the LAMP bundle that a great many script applications, like Joomla and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
