Linux is an OS, which isn't that commonly used for desktop machines, but is among the most commonly used OSs for servers. It is absolutely free, so you will not need to pay any license costs as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is also thought of as the most risk-free Operating System these days and due to the permissions which files have and the file types that can be run, virus files which can easily infect a standard computer system will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Furthermore, the OS is totally free, so it can be customized without any constraints, so that it will meet the needs of the website hosting provider and their customers. This also means that needless software packages can easily be removed to make the Operating system lighter and much faster, which can directly lead to a lot better server performance. Many Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, because this program is also free, fast and stable. It's the most frequently used web server out there and is part of the LAMP bundle that numerous script apps, including Joomla and WordPress, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
