Linux is one of the most popular Operating Systems for web servers. There are many different distributions that use exactly the same core, but the vast majority have a couple of things in common - they are free to use, which cuts down the total cost of the website hosting service because license fees will not be included in what you'll have to pay; they're easy to take care of; and last, but not least, they are a lot more secure than competitor OSs, since random files, specifically virus-infected ones, simply cannot be executed on the server. Thus, you’re able to enjoy a reliable service and spend the time developing and advertising your Internet sites, not worrying about safety issues. A lot of Linux-based machines use the Apache server to manage the HTTP traffic, since this software system is incredibly quick and is also very easy to maintain and customize in accordance with the needs of the hosting provider. A Linux server with Apache is the most suitable software environment for your Internet sites and it isn't a coincidence that a number of popular script-driven applications out there require LAMP, that refers to Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
