Linux is an OS, which is not that popular for desktop machines, but is amongst the most frequently used OSs for servers. It is totally free, so you won't need to pay any license fees as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is also considered to be the most risk-free Operating System these days and due to the permissions which files have and the file types that can be run, virus files which can easily infect a regular PC will simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Furthermore, the Operating System is totally free, so it can easily be altered with no restrictions, as a way to satisfy the requirements of the website hosting company and their customers. This suggests that needless software packages could be removed to make the Operating system lighter and faster, that may directly contribute to far better hosting server performance. A large number of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, because this application is also free, quick and secure. It is the most frequently used web server around and is a part of the LAMP bundle that lots of script apps, including WordPress and Joomla, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
