Linux is a well-known Operating System, that is frequently used for web servers, as it provides a number of advantages over other OSs. It is looked upon as the most solid Operating system nowadays and owing to the way it functions, corrupted files will simply not work. As Linux is totally free to use, no license fees will be calculated in the price you will have to pay for your hosting service. That, consequently, makes it possible for the provider to customize the Operating system based on what they and their clients require, taking away unnecessary packages to improve the OS and the server’s overall performance. Linux servers normally include the Apache web server software, which processes website access requests. Apache is furthermore free and easy to customize, not to mention that it's really fast and light in terms of the resources it requires. LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) is the software environment which some of the most popular script apps require – Joomla, WordPress, Moodle, and so forth. The LAMP configuration is the most frequently used one around the globe, due to the fact that it is stable as well as simple to maintain.
