Linux is an Operating System, which isn't that popular for desktop machines, but is among the most popular OSs for servers. It's totally free, so you will not need to pay any license fees as part of your hosting payments. Linux is additionally thought of as the most reliable Operating System available and due to the permissions which files have and the file types that can be run, virus files that can infect a standard PC will simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Moreover, the OS is freeware, so it can easily be changed with no constraints, as a way to match the requirements of the web hosting provider and their clients. This means that needless software packages may be removed to make the Operating system lighter and swifter, which can directly result in significantly better server performance. Many Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, due to the fact that this application is also totally free, fast and secure. It's the most frequently used web server around and is an element of the LAMP bundle that a great many script apps, like Joomla™ and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've made a decision to use Linux on our web servers as well, given that no other Operating System can match its adaptability and without it, we would not have had the means to develop our custom website hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server
accounts are set up. The platform incorporates big clusters of web servers, each one addressing a certain part of the hosting service - databases, emails, files, the Control Panel, and so on. The consequence of combining this custom setup with Linux is an extremely reliable, risk-free and fast service with zero downtime. What's more, the web access is addressed by Apache, simply because it's remarkably customizable and supports many modules and web programming languages such as PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, and so forth. Our semi-dedicated server solutions will offer you all the speed and security you want for your websites and we have made many software adjustments to make certain we'll fulfill our uptime guarantee.
