Linux is an OS, which isn't that commonly used for desktop machines, but is one of the most frequently used OSs for servers. It's totally free, so you won't need to pay any license costs as part of your hosting payments. Linux is furthermore thought of as the most reliable OS nowadays and thanks to the permissions that files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files which can infect a regular PC will simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Additionally, the OS is totally free, so it could be customized without any limitations, as a way to suit the needs of the web hosting provider and their clients. This also suggests that unwanted software packages can easily be removed to make the OS lighter and swifter, which can directly contribute to far better hosting server performance. Lots of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, since this application is also 100 % free, fast and secure. It is the most popular web server available and is an element of the LAMP bundle that a great many script applications, including WordPress and Joomla™, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have chosen to use Linux on our machines as well, considering that no other Operating System can match its flexibility and without it, we wouldn't have had the chance to create our custom web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server
accounts are set up. The platform is made up of substantial clusters of servers, each one handling a particular part of the website hosting service - databases, e-mails, files, the Control Panel, and so on. The result of blending this custom setup with Linux is a very dependable, secure and quick service with basically no downtime. Furthermore, the web access is handled by Apache, because it is highly customizable and supports many modules and web programming languages which include PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, and so on. Our semi-dedicated server solutions will give you all the speed and security that you would like for your sites and we've made a lot of software adjustments to be certain that we will fulfill our uptime guarantee.
