Linux is an OS, which isn't that popular for desktop machines, but is amongst the most widely used OSs for servers. It's absolutely free, so you will not have to pay any license costs as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is additionally considered to be the most risk-free OS these days and thanks to the permissions that files have as well as the file types that can be run, virus files which can easily infect a regular PC will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Also, the OS is freeware, so it can be altered without any limits, in order to suit the requirements of the hosting company and their clients. This means that needless software packages may be removed to make the OS lighter and quicker, which could directly contribute to significantly better hosting server performance. A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, due to the fact that this piece of software is also totally free, quick and reliable. It's the most widely used web server out there and is a part of the LAMP bundle that a lot of script applications, such as Joomla™ and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

accounts are set up on a cutting-edge specialized platform.

The Operating system allows us to make the necessary modifications, not to mention the improved speed, for the reason that only 1 type of process runs on the hosting server, as opposed to the traditional website hosting platform made available from most companies where everything runs on one web server. Moreover, we use the Apache web server also. We have analyzed its capabilities over the years, so we have confirmed that it can give us as a provider and you as a customer the needed speed and overall flexibility for the best possible website performance.
