Linux is among the frequently used OSs for web servers. There are tens of different distributions which use the same core, but the majority have a few things in common - they are totally free to use, which lessens the overall cost of the hosting service as license fees won't be included in what you'll have to pay; they are very easy to take care of; and last, but not least, they are a lot more secure than competitor Operating Systems, because random files, especially virus-infected ones, just cannot be executed on the hosting server. In this way, you’ll be able to enjoy a protected service and spend the time developing and promoting your Internet sites, not bothering with basic safety problems. Many Linux-based machines use the Apache server to manage the HTTP traffic, due to the fact that this software system is really fast and is also uncomplicated to maintain and personalize as per the requirements of the website hosting provider. A Linux hosting server with Apache is the best software environment for your Internet sites and it is not a coincidence that a number of popular script-driven apps nowadays require LAMP, that signifies Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
