Linux is an Operating System, that is not that common for desktop machines, but is one of the most widely used OSs for servers. It's free of charge, so you won't have to pay any license costs as part of your hosting payments. Linux is also regarded as being the most reliable Operating System available and due to the permissions which files have as well as the file types that can be run, virus files which can easily infect a regular computer shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Also, the OS is absolutely free, so it could be modified with no constraints, as a way to satisfy the needs of the website hosting provider and their clients. This also implies that needless software packages can easily be removed to make the Operating system lighter and much faster, which could directly contribute to significantly better hosting server performance. A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, as this program is also free, quick and stable. It is the most popular web server out there and is an element of the LAMP bundle that lots of script applications, including Joomla™ and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
