Linux is a popular OS, that's frequently used for web servers, given that it features a number of advantages over other Operating Systems. It's looked upon as the most reliable OS these days and owing to the way it runs, corrupted files will simply not work. Because Linux is free to use, no license fees will be added to the price you will have to pay for your web hosting service. This, subsequently, makes it possible for the provider to personalize the OS depending on what they and their customers need, removing unneeded packages to enhance the OS and the server’s functionality. Linux servers frequently come with the Apache server software, that processes site access requests. Apache is furthermore absolutely free and customizable, not to mention that it is incredibly quick and light in terms of the resources it requires. LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) is the software environment which a lot of the most famous script applications require – WordPress, Joomla, Moodle, etcetera. The LAMP configuration is the most traditionally used one globally, as it's stable as well as simple to take care of.
Stable Linux with Apache in Shared Web Hosting
All of the servers which are an integral part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform run Linux in order to ensure their fast and stable operations, that will subsequently lead to superior overall website efficiency. That is valid for every site that you host in a shared web hosting account with us. Each and every part of the web hosting service (email messages, databases, files) will be taken care of by its own cluster of web servers, so only 1 type of processes will run on a particular hosting server, which will contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites even more. You can use HTML, Perl, Python, JavaScript and almost any other web development language for your websites, as they all can run on a Linux web server. We also use the Apache web server, as our experience over the years indicates that this is probably the very best software of its sort.
