Linux is an OS, which isn't that widely used for desktop machines, but is among the most widely used OSs for web servers. It is free of charge, so you won't need to pay any license charges as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is furthermore thought to be the most risk-free Operating System nowadays and thanks to the permissions that files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files which could infect an average personal computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Moreover, the OS is totally free, so it can easily be customized without any limits, so as to satisfy the needs of the web hosting company and their clients. This also means that unnecessary software packages can be removed to make the OS lighter and faster, which could directly contribute to a lot better hosting server performance. A large number of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, as this program is also totally free, fast and secure. It is the most frequently used web server out there and is a part of the LAMP bundle that a great many script applications, including Joomla and WordPress, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
