Linux is an Operating System, which isn't that popular for desktop machines, but is among the most frequently used OSs for web servers. It's totally free, so you won't need to pay any license costs as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is furthermore thought of as the most secure OS these days and due to the permissions that files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files that can infect a normal computer shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Furthermore, the OS is freeware, so it can easily be customized without any constraints, so as to match the needs of the hosting company and their clients. This suggests that unneeded software packages could be removed to make the OS lighter and swifter, that can directly result in much better hosting server performance. A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, because this piece of software is also totally free, quick and secure. It is the most widely used web server around and is part of the LAMP bundle that a lot of script apps, including WordPress and Joomla™, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
