Linux is an OS, that is not that commonly used for desktop machines, but is one of the most frequently used OSs for web servers. It is totally free, so you won't need to pay any license costs as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is also regarded as being the most secure Operating System available and because of the permissions that 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 web server. In addition, the Operating System is freeware, so it could be changed without any constraints, in order to satisfy the needs of the website hosting company and their customers. This suggests that unwanted software packages can easily be removed to make the OS lighter and much faster, that may directly contribute to a lot better server performance. Many Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, due to the fact that this program is also 100 % free, fast and stable. It is the most frequently used web server around and is an element of the LAMP bundle that many 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 made a decision to use Linux on our servers too, since no other OS can match its overall flexibility and without it, we would not have had the means to create our custom website hosting platform in which all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created. The platform includes significant groups of servers, each one dealing with a specific part of the hosting service - databases, e-mail messages, files, the Control Panel, etc. The consequence of mixing this custom setup with Linux is an extremely reliable, secure and quick service with virtually no downtime. What's more, the web access is handled by Apache, because it's extremely customizable and supports many modules and web programming languages which include PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, and so forth. Our semi-dedicated server solutions will give you all the speed and stability that you want for your websites and we have made a lot of software tweaks to make certain that we will fulfill our uptime guarantee.
