Linux is amongst the most widely used Operating Systems for web servers. There are a number of different distributions which use the exact same core, but the greater part have a number of things in common - they are absolutely free to use, which lessens the overall cost of the website hosting service as license fees won't be included in what you have to pay; they are quite simple to take care of; and last, but not least, they're considerably more secure than competitor OSs, because random files, particularly virus-infected ones, can't be executed on the web server. Thus, you are able to enjoy a secure service and spend the time developing and promoting your web sites, not bothering with basic safety problems. A lot of Linux-based machines use the Apache web server to handle the HTTP traffic, since this software system is incredibly quick and is also very easy to maintain and customize as per the needs of the hosting provider. A Linux server with Apache is the ideal software environment for your Internet sites and it's not at all a coincidence that lots of popular script-driven applications these days require LAMP, which symbolizes Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have made a decision to use Linux on our web servers also, considering that no other Operating System can match its flexibility and without it, we would not have had the chance to develop our custom hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created. The platform consists of significant groups of servers, each one managing particular part of the website hosting service - databases, e-mails, files, the Control Panel, etc. The end result of mixing this custom setup with Linux is an incredibly reliable, protected and speedy service with zero downtime. What's more, the web access is handled by Apache, because it is extremely customizable and supports a whole lot of modules and web programming languages including PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, etc. Our semi-dedicated server packages will provide you with all the speed and security you want for your websites and we've made many software improvements to be certain that we shall fulfill our uptime guarantee.
