Linux is one of the most widely used OSs for servers. There are several different distributions which use the exact same core, but the vast majority have a couple of things in common - they're totally free to use, which decreases the total cost of the hosting service as license fees will not be included in what you have to pay; they are quite simple to maintain; and last, but not least, they're significantly more protected in comparison with competitor OSs, as random files, especially virus-infected ones, simply cannot be executed on the server. In this way, you can enjoy a secure service and spend the time building and advertising your web sites, not bothering with security problems. Many Linux-based machines use the Apache server to deal with the HTTP traffic, since this piece of software is really quick and is also easy to maintain and personalize as per the needs of the hosting provider. A Linux server with Apache is the ideal software environment for your websites and it is not a coincidence that a number of popular script-driven apps available on the market require LAMP, which stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've made a decision to use Linux on our servers also, due to the fact that no other OS can match its adaptability and without it, we would not have had the chance to produce our custom web hosting platform in which all semi-dedicated server accounts are created. The platform incorporates massive clusters of web servers, each dealing with a particular part of the website hosting service - databases, e-mails, files, the Control Panel, and so on. The end result of merging this custom setup with Linux is an exceptionally reliable, risk-free and quick service with basically no downtime. Also, the web access is handled by Apache, due to the fact that it's highly customizable and supports a considerable amount of modules and web programming languages which include PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, and so on. Our semi-dedicated server packages will give you all the speed and dependability you want for your sites and we have made a considerable amount of software improvements to make certain we'll meet our uptime guarantee.
