Linux is amongst the most popular OSs for web servers. There are many different distributions that use exactly the same core, but the majority have a few things in common - they are absolutely free to use, which lessens the total cost of the web hosting service since license fees shall not be included in what you'll have to pay; they're easy to maintain; and last, but not least, they're way more secure in comparison with competitor Operating Systems, since random files, specifically virus-infected ones, can't be executed on the server. That way, you are able to enjoy a reliable service and spend the time building and promoting your Internet sites, not worrying about security problems. Countless Linux-based machines use the Apache server to handle the HTTP traffic, as this software is really fast and is also very easy to maintain and modify in accordance with the needs of the website hosting provider. A Linux server with Apache is the ideal software environment for your sites and it is not a coincidence that a number of popular script-driven apps available on the market require LAMP, that stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
