Linux is an Operating System, that isn't that frequently used for desktop machines, but is among the most popular OSs for web servers. It is absolutely free, so you shall not have to pay any license charges as part of your hosting payments. Linux is also regarded as the most risk-free OS around and because of the permissions that files have along with the file types that can be run, virus files which can infect an average personal computer shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Also, the OS is freeware, so it can easily be modified without any limits, so as to satisfy the requirements of the website hosting provider and their clients. This also means that unneeded software packages can easily be removed to make the OS lighter and much faster, which could directly contribute to far better hosting server performance. A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, since this software is also 100 % free, quick and reliable. It's the most widely used web server around and is a part of the LAMP bundle that lots of script applications, such as WordPress and Joomla, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
