Linux is an Operating System, which isn't that common for desktop machines, but is one of the most frequently used OSs for web servers. It is free of charge, so you won't have to pay any license costs as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is additionally regarded as the most risk-free OS these days and because of the permissions which files have as well as the file types that can be run, virus files which could infect an average personal computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Furthermore, the Operating System is free, so it can easily be modified with no limits, in order to match the requirements of the web hosting company and their clients. This means that unnecessary software packages can be removed to make the Operating system lighter and a lot quicker, that may directly lead to a lot better hosting server performance. A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, because this software is also free, quick and reliable. It is the most frequently used web server out there and is an element of the LAMP bundle that a great many script apps, like Joomla™ and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We've made a decision to use Linux on our machines also, because no other Operating System can match its flexibility and without it, we wouldn't have had the means to produce our custom web hosting platform in which all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created. The platform is made up of big clusters of servers, each one handling a specific part of the web hosting service - databases, e-mail messages, files, the Control Panel, and so forth. The consequence of mixing this custom setup with Linux is a really stable, secure and speedy service with virtually no downtime. Furthermore, the web access is handled by Apache, as it is remarkably customizable and supports a lot of modules and web programming languages which include PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, etcetera. Our semi-dedicated server plans will give you all the speed and security that you would like for your sites and we have made a considerable amount of software improvements to make certain we will fulfill our uptime guarantee.
