Linux is an Operating System, which isn't that common for desktop machines, but is among the most popular OSs for servers. It is totally free, so you won't have to pay any license charges as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is additionally thought of as the most secure OS out there and because of the permissions which files have and the file types that can be run, virus files which can easily infect a standard PC will simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Furthermore, the Operating System is 100 % free, so it can easily be changed without any limits, so that it will satisfy the requirements of the web hosting provider and their customers. This means that unneeded software packages can easily be removed to make the Operating system lighter and a lot quicker, which could directly contribute to a lot better hosting server performance. Lots of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, because this software is also free, fast and secure. It's the most popular web server out there and is part of the LAMP bundle that lots of script apps, such as Joomla™ and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
