Linux is an Operating System, that is not that common for desktop machines, but is among the most popular OSs for servers. It is totally free, so you won't have to pay any license charges as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is furthermore regarded as the most reliable OS these days and thanks to the permissions that files have along with the file types that can be run, virus files that could infect an average personal computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. In addition, the OS is absolutely free, so it could be changed with no limits, so that it will meet the requirements of the web hosting provider and their clients. This also implies that unneeded software packages can be removed to make the OS lighter and a lot quicker, that can directly result in far better hosting server performance. A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, as this application is also absolutely free, fast and stable. It is the most popular web server around and is an element of the LAMP bundle that a great many script applications, like WordPress and Joomla™, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have decided to use Linux on our web servers as well, because no other OS can match its versatility and without it, we would not have had the means to build our custom web hosting platform in which all semi-dedicated server
accounts are set up. The platform incorporates massive groups of machines, each one dealing with a particular part of the web hosting service - databases, e-mail messages, files, the CP, etc. The consequence of mixing this custom setup with Linux is a very dependable, secure and fast service with virtually no downtime. Also, the web access is addressed by Apache, due to the fact that it's remarkably customizable and supports a whole lot of modules and web programming languages which include PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, etc. Our semi-dedicated server plans will provide you with all the speed and stability you want for your websites and we've made many software modifications to make certain we will fulfill our uptime guarantee.
