Linux is an OS, which is not that widely used for desktop machines, but is amongst the most widely used OSs for servers. It's free of charge, so you will not need to pay any license fees as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is additionally considered to be the most reliable Operating System these days and thanks to the permissions which files have along with the file types that can be run, virus files that could infect an average computer shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Moreover, the Operating System is freeware, so it could be modified with no constraints, as a way to satisfy the needs of the website hosting provider and their clients. This means that unneeded software packages may be removed to make the OS lighter and faster, which can directly contribute to significantly better hosting server performance. Lots of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, because this piece of software is also 100 % free, quick 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.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have made a decision to use Linux on our servers too, due to the fact that no other OS can match its overall flexibility and without it, we would not have had the chance to create our custom web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server
accounts are set up. The platform includes significant groups of web servers, each dealing with a specific part of the web hosting service - databases, e-mail messages, files, the CP, and so on. The effect of mixing this custom setup with Linux is a very reliable, secure and fast service with zero downtime. Also, the web access is addressed by Apache, for the reason that it is exceptionally customizable and supports a whole lot of modules and web programming languages like PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, etc. Our semi-dedicated server plans will offer you all the speed and dependability that you would like for your websites and we've made a whole lot of software tweaks to make sure that we will meet our uptime guarantee.
