Linux is an OS, that is not that popular for desktop machines, but is amongst the most frequently used OSs for servers. It's 100 % free, so you won't need to pay any license charges as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is additionally regarded as being the most secure Operating System available and because of the permissions that files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files that can infect a standard computer system shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Also, the OS is free, so it could be changed without any restrictions, as a way to match the needs of the website hosting company and their clients. This also implies that needless software packages can be removed to make the Operating system lighter and faster, which can directly lead to significantly better server performance. Many Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, because this application is also totally free, quick and secure. It is the most popular web server out there and is part of the LAMP bundle that a lot of script apps, including WordPress and Joomla, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
