Linux is an Operating System, that is not that frequently used for desktop machines, but is one of the most widely used OSs for web servers. It is absolutely free, so you will not have to pay any license charges as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is also thought of as the most reliable Operating System out there and thanks to the permissions that files have along with the file types that can be run, virus files which can easily infect a normal personal computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Additionally, the Operating System is absolutely free, so it can be altered without any limits, so that it will satisfy the requirements of the hosting company and their customers. This also means that unnecessary software packages may be removed to make the OS lighter and much faster, that can directly lead to much better server performance. Many Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, since this piece of software is also totally free, quick and secure. It is the most popular web server available and is an element of the LAMP bundle that numerous script applications, like Joomla™ and WordPress, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have made a decision to use Linux on our machines too, since no other Operating System can match its versatility and without it, we would not have had the opportunity to build our custom website hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created. The platform includes large clusters of servers, each one handling a particular part of the hosting service - databases, e-mails, files, the CP, etc. The end result of combining this custom setup with Linux is an extremely reliable, protected and fast service with basically no downtime. Also, the web access is handled by Apache, simply because it is remarkably customizable and supports a whole lot of modules and web programming languages such as PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, and so on. Our semi-dedicated server packages will offer you all the speed and security that you would like for your sites and we've made a great deal of software modifications to make certain we'll meet our uptime guarantee.
