Linux is an OS, that isn't that widely used for desktop machines, but is amongst the most widely used OSs for web servers. It is absolutely free, so you won't need to pay any license charges as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is furthermore thought to be the most secure Operating System out there and because of the permissions which files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files that can easily infect a standard PC shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Moreover, the Operating System is free, so it could be customized with no limitations, so that it will satisfy the requirements of the hosting company and their clients. This also means that unneeded software packages can easily be removed to make the Operating system lighter and a lot quicker, which can directly result in a lot better hosting server performance. Lots of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, since this software is also totally free, quick and reliable. It's the most popular web server available and is part of the LAMP bundle that many script apps, including Joomla™ and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

accounts are set up on a cutting-edge custom made platform. A separate group of web servers manages each service - databases, e-mails, files, and so forth., and considering the fact that we highly treasure the pros of a customizable, secure and reliable OS, all of the machines that form the clusters run Linux.

Furthermore, we use the Apache web server as well. We have analyzed its capabilities over time, so we have confirmed that it could give us as a provider and you as a client the wanted speed and versatility for the best possible web site performance.
