Linux is an OS, that isn't that common for desktop machines, but is among the most commonly used OSs for servers. It's totally free, so you shall not need to pay any license costs as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is additionally thought of as the most secure Operating System around and due to the permissions which files have and the file types that can be run, virus files that can infect a standard PC will simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Additionally, the Operating System is totally free, so it can be altered without any restrictions, so that it will meet the requirements of the hosting provider and their customers. This also means that unnecessary software packages could be removed to make the OS lighter and quicker, that can directly contribute to far better hosting server performance. Many Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, because this piece of software is also totally free, quick and reliable. It's the most frequently used web server out there and is a part of the LAMP bundle that many script applications, like Joomla and WordPress, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

You can use HTML, PHP, JavaScript, Python, Perl and any other web development language for your websites, because they all can run on a Linux machine. In addition we use the Apache web server, because our experience throughout the years has proven that this is probably the best software of its kind.

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on a cutting-edge custom made platform. An individual group of web servers handles each service - databases, emails, files, etcetera., and considering the fact that we highly value the pros of a custom-made, secure and stable OS, all the machines that form the clusters run Linux. The Operating system enables us to make the required adjustments, not to mention the improved speed, as just one type of process runs on the web server, unlike the regular web hosting platform offered by most companies where everything runs on one web server. Additionally, we use the Apache web server too. We've examined its abilities throughout the years, so we've confirmed that it could give us as a provider and you as a client the needed speed and flexibility for the most effective website performance.
