Linux is one of the frequently used Operating Systems for web servers. There are many different distributions which use the exact same core, but the vast majority have several things in common - they're free to use, which cuts down the total cost of the website hosting service since license fees will not be included in what you'll have to pay; they are very easy to take care of; and last, but not least, they are far more secure as compared with competitor OSs, since random files, specifically virus-infected ones, just can't be executed on the server. That way, you can enjoy a protected service and spend the time creating and advertising your websites, not bothering with safety problems. Many Linux-based machines use the Apache server to manage the HTTP traffic, as this software system is extremely fast and is also simple to maintain and customize in accordance with the requirements of the hosting provider. A Linux web server with Apache is the perfect software environment for your Internet sites and it is not a coincidence that a number of popular script-driven apps nowadays require LAMP, which symbolizes Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
