Linux is an OS, which is not that popular for desktop machines, but is amongst the most commonly used OSs for servers. It's absolutely free, so you won't have to pay any license fees as part of your hosting payments. Linux is furthermore thought to be the most risk-free OS out there and due to the permissions that files have as well as the file types that can be run, virus files which could infect a standard personal computer shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Also, the Operating System is free, so it can easily be modified with no restrictions, in order to match the requirements of the website hosting company and their customers. This also suggests that unneeded software packages can easily be removed to make the Operating system lighter and quicker, that may directly result in significantly better server performance. A large number of Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, due to the fact that this piece of software is also 100 % free, quick and stable. It is the most popular web server available and is part of the LAMP bundle that lots of script apps, including Joomla and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Cloud Web Hosting

All the servers that are an integral part of our groundbreaking cloud hosting platform run Linux in order to ensure their fast and stable operation, which will in turn result in better overall website performance. This is valid for each and every website that you host inside a cloud web hosting account with us. Each part of the web hosting service (email messages, databases, files) shall be taken care of by its own group of web servers, so only one type of processes will run on a particular server, that will contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites even more. You may use HTML, Python, Perl, JavaScript and just about any other web development language for your websites, because they all can run on a Linux web server. Additionally we use the Apache web server, as our experience over time has proven that this is probably the best piece of software of its kind.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Servers

We have made a decision to use Linux on our web servers also, since no other OS can match its adaptability and without it, we would not have had the opportunity to produce our custom web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are created. The platform incorporates substantial clusters of machines, each handling a specific part of the hosting service - databases, e-mails, files, the CP, and so on. The result of combining this custom setup with Linux is an extremely stable, secure and fast service with virtually no downtime. What's more, the web access is handled by Apache, for the reason that it's highly customizable and supports a considerable amount of modules and web programming languages including PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, etc. Our semi-dedicated server plans will offer you all the speed and security you want for your Internet sites and we've made a whole lot of software modifications to make certain that we shall meet our uptime guarantee.
