Linux is an OS, which is not that widely used for desktop machines, but is one of the most commonly used OSs for web servers. It's absolutely free, so you will not have to pay any license fees as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is furthermore considered to be the most risk-free OS around and because of the permissions which files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files which can infect a standard personal computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. In addition, the Operating System is absolutely free, so it can easily be modified with no restrictions, so that it will meet the needs of the 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 much better hosting server performance. Numerous Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, as this application is also totally free, fast and stable. It's the most frequently used web server around and is a part of the LAMP bundle that a lot of script apps, such as Joomla™ and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
