Linux is amongst the frequently used Operating Systems for web servers. There are tens of different distributions using exactly the same core, but the greater part have a few things in common - they're free to use, which decreases the total cost of the web hosting service as license fees won't be included in what you'll have to pay; they are very easy to manage; and last, but not least, they are far more protected as compared with competitor Operating Systems, since random files, especially virus-infected ones, simply can't be executed on the server. Thus, you will be able to enjoy a secure service and spend the time building and promoting your websites, not bothering with safety problems. A lot of Linux-based machines use the Apache server to deal with the HTTP traffic, as this software system is incredibly fast and is also uncomplicated to maintain and personalize depending on the requirements of the hosting provider. A Linux server with Apache is the ideal software environment for your websites and it isn't a coincidence that numerous popular script-driven apps available on the market require LAMP, that symbolizes Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
