Linux is an OS, which is not that frequently used for desktop machines, but is one of the most frequently used OSs for web servers. It is free of charge, so you will not have to pay any license fees as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is furthermore thought of as the most reliable OS around and because of the permissions which files have as well as the file types that can be run, virus files that may infect an average computer system will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Furthermore, the Operating System is free, so it could be customized with no limitations, so that it will meet the needs of the web hosting provider and their customers. This means that unnecessary software packages can easily be removed to make the OS lighter and quicker, which could directly lead to significantly better server performance. A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, because this software is also totally free, quick and stable. It is the most widely used web server around and is a part of the LAMP bundle that a lot of script applications, including Joomla and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
