Linux is an OS, that is not that commonly used for desktop machines, but is amongst the most frequently used OSs for web servers. It's totally free, so you shall not need to pay any license costs as part of your hosting payments. Linux is also thought of as the most secure OS around and thanks to the permissions that files have as well as the file types that can be run, virus files that can easily infect a regular PC will simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Furthermore, the Operating System is 100 % free, so it can easily be customized without any restrictions, so as to suit the needs of the website hosting company and their clients. This suggests that needless software packages can be removed to make the OS lighter and much faster, that can directly result in much better server performance. A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, since this software is also free, fast and reliable. It's the most popular web server around and is an element of the LAMP bundle that numerous script applications, like Joomla™ and WordPress, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
