Linux is an Operating System, that isn't that common for desktop machines, but is among the most frequently used OSs for web servers. It's absolutely free, so you won't need to pay any license fees as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is also regarded as being the most reliable OS nowadays and due to the permissions which files have and the file types that can be run, virus files that can infect a regular PC shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Additionally, the OS is freeware, so it can easily be altered without any limitations, as a way to match the needs of the web hosting provider and their clients. This also suggests that unwanted software packages may be removed to make the Operating system lighter and faster, which can directly result in a lot better server performance. Numerous Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, because this software is also absolutely free, fast and stable. It's the most widely used web server around and is an element of the LAMP bundle that a great many script apps, including WordPress and Joomla, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
