Linux is an Operating System, that is not that frequently used for desktop machines, but is one of the most widely used OSs for web servers. It is free of charge, so you will not need to pay any license costs as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is furthermore regarded as the most secure OS nowadays and due to the permissions which files have and the file types that can be run, virus files which can infect a normal computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. In addition, the OS is 100 free, quick and reliable. It's the most widely used web server out there and is a part of the LAMP bundle that lots of script apps, like Joomla and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Shared Web Hosting

All of the web servers that are part of our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform run Linux as a way to guarantee their fast and stable functioning, which will in turn contribute to far better overall site efficiency. This is valid for every single website that you host inside a shared web hosting account with our company. Each part of the hosting service (email messages, databases, files) will be managed by its own cluster of machines, so only 1 type of processes shall run on a given hosting server, which will contribute to the fast loading speed of your Internet sites even more. You could use HTML, Perl, Python, JavaScript and any other web development language for your Internet sites, as they all can run on a Linux web server. We also use the Apache web server, considering that our experience through the years indicates that this is probably the very best software of its sort.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Servers

We've decided to use Linux on our web servers also, given that no other OS can match its overall flexibility and without it, we would not have had the opportunity to build our custom web hosting platform in which all semi-dedicated server accounts are created. The platform incorporates massive clusters of web servers, each one managing particular part of the hosting service - databases, e-mail messages, files, the Control Panel, and so forth. The consequence of combining this custom setup with Linux is an incredibly stable, secure and speedy service with basically no downtime. Also, the web access is managed by Apache, because it's exceptionally customizable and supports lots of modules and web programming languages including PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, etc. Our semi-dedicated server plans will provide you with all the speed and stability that you would like for your Internet sites and we have made a whole lot of software tweaks to be certain that we'll fulfill our uptime guarantee.
