Linux is an OS, that is not that commonly used for desktop machines, but is one of the most frequently used OSs for servers. It's totally free, so you shall not need to pay any license fees as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is furthermore regarded as the most secure OS around and due to the permissions which files have and the file types that can be run, virus files which can infect a regular computer system will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Moreover, the Operating System is free, so it could be modified with no restrictions, so that it will satisfy the requirements of the website hosting company and their clients. This implies that needless software packages can be removed to make the OS lighter and swifter, that may directly lead to far better server performance. Many Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, as this program is also free, quick and secure. It's the most commonly used web server out there and is an element of the LAMP bundle that many script apps, including WordPress and Joomla, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

The platform is made up of big clusters of web servers, each one dealing with a particular part of the hosting service - databases, e-mails, files, the Control Panel, and so forth. The result of blending this custom setup with Linux is an incredibly reliable, protected and quick service with virtually no downtime. In addition, the web access is addressed by Apache, simply because it is highly customizable and supports many modules and web programming languages including PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, etc. Our semi-dedicated server packages will give you all the speed and security that you want for your sites and we've made a lot of software adjustments to ensure that we'll fulfill our uptime guarantee.
