Linux is an Operating System, which is not that frequently used for desktop machines, but is one of the most widely used OSs for web servers. It's free of charge, so you won't need to pay any license costs as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is also considered to be the most reliable Operating System these days and thanks to the permissions that files have and the file types that can be run, virus files that can infect an average computer system will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. In addition, the Operating System is totally free, so it could be changed with no limits, in order to satisfy the requirements of the website hosting provider and their customers. This implies that unnecessary software packages can easily be removed to make the Operating system lighter and a lot quicker, that may directly lead to significantly better server performance. Many Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, due to the fact that this software is also free, fast and reliable. It is the most widely used web server around and is a part of the LAMP bundle that a lot of script apps, such as Joomla™ and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Our semi-dedicated server
accounts are created on a cutting-edge custom made platform. An independent group of servers looks after each service - databases, emails, files, and so on., and considering the fact that we highly treasure the pros of a customizable, secure and dependable Operating System, all the web servers that comprise the groups run Linux. The Operating system enables us to make the required modifications, not to mention the higher speed, as only 1 type of process runs on the web server, as opposed to the traditional website hosting platform offered by most companies where everything runs on a single web server. Additionally, we use the Apache web server as well. We've evaluated its functionality through the years, so we've confirmed that it could give us as a provider and you as a client the required speed and overall flexibility for the most effective site performance.
