Linux is an OS, which isn't that frequently used for desktop machines, but is among the most frequently used OSs for web servers. It's absolutely free, so you will not need to pay any license charges as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is furthermore considered to be the most secure Operating System out there and because of the permissions which files have along with the file types that can be run, virus files that can easily infect an average personal computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Additionally, the Operating System is totally free, so it can easily be changed with no limitations, as a way to satisfy the requirements of the web hosting provider and their clients. This also suggests that unwanted software packages can easily be removed to make the OS lighter and quicker, that can directly result in significantly better server performance. A large number of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, since this piece of software is also absolutely free, quick and secure. It is the most popular web server out there and is a part of the LAMP bundle that lots of script applications, including Joomla and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
