Linux is an Operating System, that isn't that commonly used for desktop machines, but is among the most popular OSs for servers. It's 100 % free, so you won't need to pay any license fees as part of your hosting payments. Linux is also considered to be the most risk-free OS available and thanks to the permissions which files have along with the file types that can be run, virus files which can infect a normal PC will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Moreover, the OS is absolutely free, so it can easily be customized without any restrictions, so as to satisfy the needs of the hosting company and their clients. This implies that needless software packages can be removed to make the Operating system lighter and quicker, that can directly result in a lot better hosting server performance. A large number of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, due to the fact that this application is also absolutely free, quick and reliable. It is the most frequently used web server around and is part of the LAMP bundle that a great many script applications, like WordPress and Joomla™, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have made a decision to use Linux on our machines too, since no other OS can match its versatility and without it, we would not have had the means to develop our custom website hosting platform in which all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created. The platform incorporates substantial groups of servers, each handling a particular part of the website hosting service - databases, email messages, files, the CP, etc. The result of mixing this custom setup with Linux is an extremely reliable, protected and fast service with zero downtime. What's more, the web access is handled by Apache, for the reason that it's remarkably customizable and supports many modules and web programming languages such as PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, and so on. Our semi-dedicated server plans will provide you with all the speed and security that you would like for your Internet sites and we've made a whole lot of software tweaks to make certain that we'll meet our uptime guarantee.
