Linux is an Operating System, which isn't that frequently used for desktop machines, but is amongst the most frequently used OSs for servers. It's 100 % free, so you won't need to pay any license costs as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is also regarded as being the most reliable Operating System available and thanks to the permissions that files have and the file types that can be run, virus files that can easily infect a regular PC will simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Moreover, the Operating System is freeware, so it can easily be modified with no limits, as a way to meet the requirements of the website hosting provider and their customers. This also means that unnecessary software packages can easily be removed to make the OS lighter and a lot quicker, which could directly result in a lot better hosting server performance. Lots of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, as this piece of software is also totally free, fast and secure. It's the most frequently used web server around and is an element of the LAMP bundle that a lot of script applications, such as WordPress and Joomla, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
