Linux is an Operating System, which isn't that frequently used for desktop machines, but is among the most commonly used OSs for web servers. It is totally free, so you won't have to pay any license charges as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is also considered to be the most secure Operating System nowadays and because of the permissions which files have along with the file types that can be run, virus files which could infect an average computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Additionally, the Operating System is 100 % free, so it can be modified with no constraints, so that it will meet the requirements of the website hosting company and their clients. This also means that needless software packages may be removed to make the Operating system lighter and a lot quicker, that can directly lead to much better server performance. A large number of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, as this application is also free, fast and reliable. It is the most popular web server around and is a part of the LAMP bundle that numerous script applications, such as Joomla™ and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have chosen to use Linux on our machines too, considering that no other OS can match its versatility and without it, we wouldn't have had the means to build our custom hosting platform in which all semi-dedicated server
accounts are set up. The platform is made up of large clusters of web servers, each dealing with a certain part of the website hosting service - databases, e-mails, files, the Control Panel, etc. The end result of blending this custom setup with Linux is a very dependable, secure and fast service with zero downtime. Additionally, the web access is addressed by Apache, because it's exceptionally customizable and supports a considerable amount of modules and web programming languages like PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, and so on. Our semi-dedicated server plans will provide you with all the speed and stability you want for your Internet sites and we've made many software tweaks to make sure that we will fulfill our uptime guarantee.
