Linux is an OS, which is not that widely used for desktop machines, but is amongst the most commonly used OSs for servers. It's free of charge, so you will not have to pay any license charges as part of your hosting payments. Linux is additionally thought to be the most risk-free OS these days and because of the permissions which files have along with the file types that can be run, virus files that could infect an average personal computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Moreover, the OS is totally free, so it can easily be modified without any restrictions, in order to meet the requirements of the web hosting provider and their customers. This means that unnecessary software packages can be removed to make the Operating system lighter and swifter, that can directly lead to a lot better hosting server performance. A large number of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, as this piece of software is also totally free, fast and secure. It's the most popular web server out there and is 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.
