Linux is an OS, which isn't that popular for desktop machines, but is one of the most commonly used OSs for servers. It's absolutely free, so you will not have to pay any license fees as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is also considered to be the most risk-free Operating System available and thanks to the permissions which files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files which can infect a normal personal computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. In addition, the Operating System is totally free, so it could be modified with no limits, so as to suit the requirements of the web hosting provider and their clients. This suggests that unneeded software packages could be removed to make the Operating system lighter and faster, which could directly contribute to far better server performance. A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, because this piece of software is also totally free, fast and stable. It is the most frequently used web server available and is a part of the LAMP bundle that lots of script applications, such as WordPress and Joomla, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

An independent group of servers deals with each individual service - databases, e-mails, files, and so on., and since we highly appreciate the benefits of a customizable, secure and reliable OS, all the web servers that form the groups run Linux. The OS enables us to make the critical improvements, not to mention the raised speed, because just one type of process runs on the hosting server, contrary to the regular website hosting platform offered by most companies in which everything runs on a single web server.
