Linux is amongst the frequently used Operating Systems for servers. There are a number of different distributions that use the same core, but the majority have several things in common - they are absolutely free to use, which cuts down the overall cost of the website hosting service due to the fact that license fees shall not be included in what you will need to pay; they are very easy to take care of; and last, but not least, they're far more secure as compared with competitor OSs, as random files, particularly virus-infected ones, can't be executed on the web server. This way, you will be able to enjoy a protected service and spend the time developing and advertising your web sites, not worrying about safety issues. Many Linux-based machines use the Apache web server to handle the HTTP traffic, because this piece of software is really fast and is also simple to maintain and modify depending on the requirements of the web hosting provider. A Linux hosting server with Apache is the perfect software environment for your websites and it isn't a coincidence that lots of popular script-driven applications available on the market require LAMP, which stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
Stable Linux with Apache in Website Hosting
All of the web servers which are a part of our groundbreaking cloud website hosting platform run Linux so as to ensure their fast and stable functioning, which will consequently lead to much better overall site efficiency. That is valid for every single website that you host inside a website hosting account with us. Every part of the hosting service (emails, databases, files) will be addressed by its own group of machines, so only 1 type of processes will run on a given hosting server, that will contribute to the amazing loading speed of your websites even more. You may use HTML, Perl, Python, JavaScript and any other web development language for your Internet sites, due to the fact that they all can run on a Linux server. In addition we use the Apache web server, for the reason that our experience throughout the years has shown that this is probably the best software of its kind.
