Linux is an OS, that is not that commonly used for desktop machines, but is one of the most popular OSs for web servers. It is totally free, so you won't have to pay any license costs as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is also thought to be the most risk-free OS these days and due to the permissions which files have as well as the file types that can be run, virus files which could infect a standard computer system will simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Also, the OS is totally free, so it can be changed without any limits, so that it will suit the needs of the website hosting company and their clients. This also suggests that unnecessary software packages could be removed to make the Operating system lighter and swifter, that can directly contribute to much better hosting server performance. Numerous Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, due to the fact that this program is also totally free, quick and reliable. It's the most commonly used web server out there and is part of the LAMP bundle that a great many script applications, including Joomla™ and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
