Linux is among the frequently used Operating Systems for servers. There are many different distributions which use exactly the same core, but the great majority have several things in common - they are 100 % free to use, which cuts down the total cost of the hosting service because license fees will not be included in what you need to pay; they're easy to manage; and last, but not least, they are far more secure than competitor Operating Systems, because random files, specifically virus-infected ones, simply can't be executed on the web server. This way, you will be able to enjoy a protected service and spend the time creating and advertising your Internet sites, not being concerned about basic safety problems. Countless Linux-based machines use the Apache web server to deal with the HTTP traffic, as this software is very quick and is also very easy to maintain and individualize as per the requirements of the hosting provider. A Linux web server with Apache is the best software environment for your Internet sites and it's not at all a coincidence that a lot of popular script-driven apps nowadays require LAMP, which stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
