Linux is among the most popular OSs for web servers. There are a number of different distributions which use the exact same core, but the greater part have a couple of things in common - they're free to use, which decreases the total cost of the web hosting service as license fees will not be included in what you will need to pay; they're easy to maintain; and last, but not least, they're significantly more protected than competitor Operating Systems, because random files, particularly virus-infected ones, can't be executed on the hosting server. That way, you can enjoy a reliable service and spend the time creating and advertising your web sites, not worrying about security problems. Many Linux-based machines use the Apache web server to manage the HTTP traffic, since this software is really fast and is also effortless to maintain and individualize depending on the needs of the hosting provider. A Linux hosting server with Apache is the perfect software environment for your websites and it isn't a coincidence that numerous popular script-driven apps these days require LAMP, that refers to Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Web Hosting

All of the web servers that are an element of our progressive cloud hosting platform run Linux in order to guarantee their fast and secure operation, which will in turn give you much better overall website efficiency. This is valid for any site that you host within a web hosting account with our company. Each and every part of the web hosting service (e-mails, databases, files) will be taken care of by its own group of servers, so only one type of processes will run on a given web server, that will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites even more. You can use HTML, PHP, JavaScript, Python, Perl and almost any other web development language for your websites, due to the fact that they all can run on a Linux web server. We use the Apache web server, since our experience over time indicates that it is probably the most effective software of its kind.
