Linux is an Operating System, that isn't that widely used for desktop machines, but is amongst the most popular OSs for servers. It's absolutely free, so you shall not have to pay any license charges as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is furthermore considered to be the most secure OS nowadays and due to the permissions that files have as well as the file types that can be run, virus files which can easily infect a regular computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Also, the Operating System is free, so it can be changed without any constraints, so that it will suit the requirements of the website hosting company and their clients. This also implies that unwanted software packages can easily be removed to make the Operating system lighter and faster, which could directly result in much better server performance. A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, because this software is also totally free, quick and stable. It is the most commonly used web server available and is an element of the LAMP bundle that a lot of script applications, like WordPress and Joomla™, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
