Linux is an OS, which is not that common for desktop machines, but is among the most frequently used OSs for servers. It's free of charge, so you shall not need to pay any license fees as part of your hosting payments. Linux is furthermore regarded as being the most risk-free OS nowadays and because of the permissions that files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files that can infect a normal computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Moreover, the Operating System is totally free, so it can be customized with no restrictions, in order to suit the requirements of the hosting provider and their clients. This means that unwanted software packages can easily be removed to make the Operating system lighter and a lot quicker, which could directly lead to significantly better server performance. Numerous Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, as this piece of software is also totally free, fast and stable. It is the most popular web server available and is a part of the LAMP bundle that a great many script apps, such as Joomla™ and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server
accounts are created on a cutting-edge customized platform. An individual group of servers manages each and every service - databases, emails, files, and so on., and given that we highly value the benefits of an easy to customize, protected and reliable Operating System, all of the machines that comprise the clusters run Linux. The OS allows us to make the needed modifications, not to mention the improved speed, because only 1 type of process runs on the server, unlike the regular website hosting platform offered by most companies where everything runs on a single hosting server. In addition, we use the Apache web server too. We have tested its abilities through the years, so we've confirmed that it could give us as a provider and you as a client the wanted speed and overall flexibility for the most effective web site performance.
