Linux is an Operating System, which is not that popular for desktop machines, but is amongst the most popular OSs for servers. It is absolutely free, so you won't need to pay any license charges as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is furthermore regarded as the most secure Operating System around and because of the permissions that files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files which can infect an average personal computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Moreover, the Operating System is absolutely free, so it can easily be modified with no constraints, in order to suit the requirements of the hosting provider and their clients. This also implies that needless software packages can easily be removed to make the OS lighter and faster, that may directly contribute to much better hosting server performance. Many Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, as this program is also totally free, fast and secure. It is the most frequently used web server available and is a part of the LAMP bundle that numerous script applications, such as WordPress and Joomla, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

All of the servers that are a part of our progressive cloud website hosting platform run Linux in order to ensure their fast and stable operation, which will consequently lead to better overall site performance. That's valid for every single site that you host within a website hosting account with us. Each and every part of the hosting service (e-mails, databases, files) will be taken care of by its own group of servers, so only 1 type of processes will run on a certain machine, that will contribute to the fast loading speed of your Internet sites even more. You could use HTML, JavaScript, PHP, Python, Perl and any other web development language for your websites, because they all can run on a Linux web server. We use the Apache web server, as our experience throughout the years has shown that it is probably the very best piece of software of its sort.
Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have decided to use Linux on our servers also, given that no other Operating System can match its flexibility and without it, we would not have had the chance to build our custom hosting platform in which all semi-dedicated server accounts are created. The platform incorporates substantial groups of servers, each handling a particular part of the web hosting service - databases, e-mail messages, files, the CP, etc. The result of mixing this custom setup with Linux is an extremely reliable, risk-free and speedy service with basically no downtime. In addition, the web access is managed by Apache, as it is extremely customizable and supports many modules and web programming languages such as PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, and so on. Our semi-dedicated server plans will give you all the speed and security that you want for your Internet sites and we've made many software improvements to make certain that we shall fulfill our uptime guarantee.
