Linux is an Operating System, which isn't that widely used for desktop machines, but is one of the most frequently used OSs for servers. It is absolutely free, so you will not need to pay any license charges as part of your hosting payments. Linux is furthermore regarded as the most secure Operating System these days and due to the permissions which files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files that could infect a standard computer system shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Furthermore, the Operating System is freeware, so it could be altered with no restrictions, so as to satisfy the needs of the website hosting company and their clients. This means that unnecessary software packages may be removed to make the Operating system lighter and faster, which could directly lead to significantly better hosting server performance. A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, as this program is also 100 % free, quick and stable. It's the most commonly used web server available and is an element of the LAMP bundle that a great many script apps, such as Joomla and WordPress, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
