Linux is among the most widely used Operating Systems for servers. There are a number of different distributions which use exactly the same core, but the majority have several things in common - they're totally free to use, which minimizes the total cost of the website hosting service since license fees shall not be included in what you have to pay; they're quite simple to manage; and last, but not least, they're way more protected than competitor Operating Systems, since random files, especially virus-infected ones, simply cannot be executed on the server. Thus, you’re able to enjoy a protected service and spend the time developing and advertising your websites, not bothering with security issues. Countless Linux-based machines use the Apache server to handle the HTTP traffic, because this software system is extremely quick and is also easy to maintain and customize as per the requirements of the hosting provider. A Linux hosting server with Apache is the best software environment for your websites and it's not a coincidence that a lot of popular script-driven apps available on the market require LAMP, which refers to Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
