Linux is an Operating System, that is not that common for desktop machines, but is amongst the most frequently used OSs for servers. It's totally free, so you shall not have to pay any license costs as part of your hosting payments. Linux is also regarded as the most risk-free Operating System nowadays and because of the permissions that files have and the file types that can be run, virus files which could infect a regular computer shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. In addition, the OS is absolutely free, so it can be modified with no limitations, in order to satisfy the requirements of the hosting provider and their clients. This implies that needless software packages could be removed to make the OS lighter and much faster, which could directly lead to significantly better server performance. A large number of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, due to the fact that this piece of software is also free, fast and secure. It is the most frequently used web server around and is a part of the LAMP bundle that many script applications, such as WordPress and Joomla, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
