Linux is among the frequently used Operating Systems for servers. There are several different distributions which use the same core, but the greater part have a number of things in common - they are totally free to use, which lessens the total cost of the hosting service due to the fact that license fees will not be included in what you will need to pay; they are quite simple to maintain; and last, but not least, they're considerably more protected compared with competitor OSs, since random files, particularly virus-infected ones, simply cannot be executed on the hosting server. That way, you can enjoy a secure service and spend the time building and promoting your websites, not bothering with safety problems. A lot of Linux-based machines use the Apache web server to handle the HTTP traffic, due to the fact that this software system is extremely fast and is also easy to maintain and modify in accordance with the needs of the website hosting provider. A Linux web server with Apache is the best software environment for your Internet sites and it's not a coincidence that many popular script-driven applications nowadays require LAMP, that stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
