Linux is an OS, that isn't that commonly used for desktop machines, but is among the most frequently used OSs for web servers. It's 100 % free, so you won't need to pay any license costs as part of your hosting payments. Linux is furthermore regarded as the most risk-free Operating System out there and due to the permissions that files have and the file types that can be run, virus files which may infect a regular computer system will simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Additionally, the Operating System is free, so it can be modified without any limits, so as to meet the requirements of the web hosting provider and their customers. This also suggests that unwanted software packages could be removed to make the Operating system lighter and swifter, which can directly lead to significantly better server performance. Lots of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, due to the fact that this piece of software is also free, fast and secure. It is the most widely used web server out there and is part of the LAMP bundle that a lot of script applications, including WordPress and Joomla, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
