Linux is among the most widely used Operating Systems for web servers. There are a number of different distributions which use the same core, but the greater part have a few things in common - they are 100 % free to use, which decreases the overall cost of the website hosting service because license fees won't be included in what you will have to pay; they're easy to maintain; and last, but not least, they're considerably more secure compared with competitor OSs, as random files, especially virus-infected ones, simply cannot be executed on the server. In this way, you’re able to enjoy a secure service and spend the time developing and promoting your web sites, not worrying about basic safety issues. Many Linux-based machines use the Apache server to manage the HTTP traffic, as this piece of software is incredibly fast and is also uncomplicated to maintain and personalize depending on the requirements of the website hosting provider. A Linux web server with Apache is the most suitable software environment for your Internet sites and it is not a coincidence that a lot of popular script-driven apps these days require LAMP, that symbolizes Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
