Linux is among the most widely used Operating Systems for web servers. There are several different distributions which use the same core, but the greater part have a few things in common - they're 100 % free to use, which minimizes the total cost of the hosting service because license fees will not be included in what you have to pay; they are easy to manage; and last, but not least, they're way more secure in comparison with competitor OSs, since random files, specifically virus-infected ones, can't be executed on the hosting server. Thus, you’ll be able to enjoy a reliable service and spend the time developing and promoting your websites, not being concerned about basic safety issues. Many Linux-based machines use the Apache web server to manage the HTTP traffic, as this piece of software is incredibly fast and is also effortless to maintain and individualize as per the requirements of the web hosting provider. A Linux web server with Apache is the ideal software environment for your Internet sites and it isn't a coincidence that lots of popular script-driven applications out there require LAMP, that stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
