Linux is an Operating System, which is not that common for desktop machines, but is one of the most frequently used OSs for servers. It is free of charge, so you shall not have to pay any license fees as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is furthermore regarded as the most reliable Operating System out there and because of the permissions which files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files which may infect an average computer system will simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Also, the OS is totally free, so it could be altered with no limitations, so that it will match the needs of the hosting provider and their clients. This also implies that unnecessary software packages can easily be removed to make the OS lighter and faster, that can directly result in much better hosting server performance. A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, since this piece of software is also free, quick and reliable. It is the most widely used web server available and is part of the LAMP bundle that a great many script apps, like WordPress and Joomla, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
