Linux is an OS, which isn't that common for desktop machines, but is among the most commonly used OSs for web servers. It is free of charge, so you won't need to pay any license costs as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is furthermore thought of as the most risk-free Operating System these days and thanks to the permissions that files have along with the file types that can be run, virus files that may infect a regular computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Moreover, the OS is totally free, so it could be altered with no constraints, as a way to suit the needs of the hosting company and their clients. This also implies that unnecessary software packages could be removed to make the Operating system lighter and swifter, which could directly result in a lot better hosting server performance. Many Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, due to the fact that this piece of software is also absolutely free, quick and stable. It's the most widely used web server out there and is part of the LAMP bundle that a lot of script applications, including WordPress and Joomla™, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
