Linux is an Operating System, that is not that common for desktop machines, but is one of the most popular OSs for web servers. It is free of charge, so you will not need to pay any license fees as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is additionally regarded as the most secure Operating System these days and because of the permissions that files have as well as the file types that can be run, virus files that can infect a normal computer system will simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Also, the OS is totally free, so it could be customized with no limitations, as a way to meet the requirements of the hosting provider and their customers. This also implies that unneeded software packages can be removed to make the Operating system lighter and quicker, which can directly contribute to a lot better server performance. A large number of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, because this piece of software is also 100 % free, quick and stable. It's the most widely used web server out there and is an element of the LAMP bundle that a great many script apps, such as WordPress and Joomla™, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
