Linux is one of the most popular OSs for servers. There are tens of different distributions using exactly the same core, but the great majority have a few things in common - they are totally free to use, which cuts down the overall cost of the hosting service because license fees won't be included in what you will need to pay; they're very easy to manage; and last, but not least, they're way more secure compared with competitor OSs, since random files, especially virus-infected ones, just can't be executed on the server. That way, you are able to enjoy a secure service and spend the time building and promoting your web sites, not being concerned about security problems. Loads of Linux-based machines use the Apache web server to handle the HTTP traffic, as this software is very quick and is also very easy to maintain and individualize in accordance with the needs of the website hosting provider. A Linux server with Apache is the perfect software environment for your Internet sites and it isn't a coincidence that many popular script-driven applications nowadays require LAMP, which signifies Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
