Linux is an Operating System, which is not that common for desktop machines, but is among the most frequently used OSs for servers. It's 100 % free, so you will not have to pay any license costs as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is furthermore regarded as the most secure OS available and thanks to the permissions that files have and 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 server. Furthermore, the OS is absolutely free, so it can easily be modified without any constraints, so that it will suit the requirements of the hosting provider and their customers. This also means that unnecessary software packages can be removed to make the Operating system lighter and a lot quicker, that can directly lead to much better hosting server performance. Lots of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, due to the fact that this piece of software is also free, quick and stable. It's the most frequently used web server around and is a part of the LAMP bundle that a great many script applications, including Joomla™ and WordPress, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
