Linux is an Operating System, which is not that common for desktop machines, but is among the most popular OSs for servers. It's totally free, so you won't need to pay any license costs as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is additionally considered to be the most secure Operating System available and thanks to the permissions that files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files which can infect an average computer system shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Additionally, the OS is freeware, so it can easily be changed with no restrictions, so as to suit the requirements of the web hosting provider and their clients. This suggests that needless software packages can easily be removed to make the OS lighter and swifter, which can directly lead to far better server performance. Lots of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, due to the fact that this program is also totally free, quick and stable. It is the most frequently used web server available and is part of the LAMP bundle that a great many script applications, such as WordPress and Joomla, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Hosting

All the servers which are an integral part of our progressive cloud hosting platform run Linux to be able to ensure their fast and secure operation, that will in turn contribute to better overall website functionality. That's valid for each site that you host in a hosting account with our company. Each part of the website hosting service (e-mail messages, databases, files) will be managed by its own cluster of web servers, so just one type of processes shall run on a given web server, which will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites even more. You can use HTML, JavaScript, PHP, Perl, Python and any other web development language for your Internet sites, because they all can run on a Linux web server. We also use the Apache web server, as our experience over time has shown that it is probably the best software of its sort.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on a cutting-edge custom made platform. An independent group of web servers is in charge of every single service - databases, email messages, files, and so on., and because we highly value the pros of an easy to customize, protected and reliable Operating System, all of the machines that form the groups run Linux. The OS allows us to make the needed modifications, not to mention the increased speed, due to the fact only one type of process runs on the web server, as opposed to the conventional hosting platform made available from most companies where everything runs on one hosting server. Moreover, we use the Apache web server as well. We have analyzed its functionality over the years, so we have confirmed that it could give us as a provider and you as a client the required speed and overall flexibility for the best achievable site performance.
