Linux is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for web servers. There are several different distributions using exactly the same core, but the vast majority have several things in common - they are totally free to use, which lessens the total cost of the website hosting service due to the fact that license fees shall not be included in what you need to pay; they're very easy to manage; and last, but not least, they are significantly more secure in comparison with competitor Operating Systems, because random files, especially virus-infected ones, simply cannot be executed on the hosting server. That way, you’re able to enjoy a reliable service and spend the time building and advertising your Internet sites, not being concerned about safety issues. Countless Linux-based machines use the Apache web server to manage the HTTP traffic, due to the fact that this software is incredibly quick and is also very easy to maintain and customize depending on the needs of the web hosting provider. A Linux web server with Apache is the perfect software environment for your sites and it's not a coincidence that lots of popular script-driven applications on the market require LAMP, which signifies Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
