It's absolutely free, so you shall not need to pay any license fees as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is also considered to be the most risk-free Operating System these days and due to the permissions which files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files which could infect an average computer system shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Additionally, the Operating System is 100 % free, so it can easily be modified with no constraints, as a way to meet the needs of the website hosting provider and their clients. This means that unnecessary software packages can be removed to make the OS lighter and much faster, that may directly contribute to much better server performance. Lots of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, since this software is also absolutely free, quick and secure. It's the most commonly used web server available and is part of the LAMP bundle that numerous script applications, like Joomla and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Website Hosting

All of the web servers which are part of our progressive cloud website hosting platform run Linux in order to ensure their fast and secure operations, that will subsequently contribute to better overall site functionality. This is valid for each and every website that you host inside a website hosting account with us. Every part of the web hosting service (emails, databases, files) will be handled by its own group of machines, so only one type of processes will run on a particular server, which will contribute to the fast loading speed of your Internet sites even more. You can use HTML, Perl, Python, JavaScript and any other web development language for your sites, due to the fact that they all can run on a Linux machine. We use the Apache web server, since our experience over the years indicates that this is probably the ideal piece of software of its kind.
