Linux is an OS, that is not that commonly used for desktop machines, but is among the most frequently used OSs for servers. It is free of charge, so you will not need to pay any license fees as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is additionally regarded as being the most reliable Operating System around and thanks to the permissions which files have and the file types that can be run, virus files which can infect a normal personal computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Furthermore, the OS is free, so it can easily be modified with no restrictions, so as to meet the requirements of the web hosting company and their customers. This implies that unnecessary software packages may be removed to make the OS lighter and faster, which can directly lead to much better hosting server performance. Lots of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, because this application is also free, fast and reliable. It's the most frequently used web server out there and is an element of the LAMP bundle that many script apps, such as Joomla™ and WordPress, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've made a decision to use Linux on our web servers as well, due to the fact that no other OS can match its versatility and without it, we would not have had the opportunity to produce our custom website hosting platform in which all semi-dedicated server
accounts are set up. The platform includes huge groups of web servers, each addressing a particular part of the website hosting service - databases, e-mails, files, the CP, and so forth. The result of merging this custom setup with Linux is a really stable, protected and quick service with virtually no downtime. Additionally, the web access is addressed by Apache, as it is remarkably customizable and supports many modules and web programming languages which include PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, etcetera. Our semi-dedicated server solutions will give you all the speed and dependability that you want for your sites and we have made a considerable amount of software modifications to ensure that we will fulfill our uptime guarantee.
