Linux is an OS, which isn't that widely used for desktop machines, but is one of the most commonly used OSs for servers. It's 100 % free, so you shall not need to pay any license fees as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is also regarded as the most reliable Operating System nowadays and because of the permissions which files have along with the file types that can be run, virus files that may infect a regular PC shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Moreover, the OS is freeware, so it can be modified without any restrictions, in order to match the needs of the hosting company and their clients. This also suggests that unwanted software packages could be removed to make the Operating system lighter and quicker, that may directly lead to far better hosting server performance. Many Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, since this program is also totally free, quick and secure. It's the most frequently used web server out there and is a part of the LAMP bundle that many script applications, such as Joomla and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
