Linux is an OS, that isn't that commonly used for desktop machines, but is among the most commonly used OSs for web servers. It's totally free, so you will not have to pay any license charges as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is furthermore regarded as being 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 may infect a standard computer system will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Moreover, the Operating System is absolutely free, so it could be changed with no constraints, in order to suit the requirements of the hosting provider and their customers. This also suggests that needless software packages could be removed to make the OS lighter and a lot quicker, that can directly contribute to significantly better hosting server performance. Many Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, since this program is also 100 % free, quick and stable. It is the most popular web server around and is part of the LAMP bundle that a great many script apps, such as WordPress and Joomla, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
