Linux is an Operating System, which isn't that commonly used for desktop machines, but is amongst the most widely used OSs for web servers. It is 100 % free, so you won't need to pay any license costs as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is additionally regarded as the most reliable Operating System nowadays and thanks to the permissions which files have and the file types that can be run, virus files that could infect a standard personal computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Also, the OS is freeware, so it could be modified with no limits, so that it will suit the requirements of the web hosting company and their customers. This means that needless software packages could be removed to make the OS lighter and swifter, that can directly result in far better server performance. Numerous Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, as this application is also totally free, quick and stable. It's the most commonly used web server out there and is a part of the LAMP bundle that a lot of script apps, such as WordPress and Joomla, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
Stable Linux with Apache in Shared Web Hosting
All of the web servers which are an element of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform run Linux as a way to guarantee their fast and stable operation, which will in turn give you better overall site performance. This is valid for any website that you host in a shared web hosting account with our company. Every part of the web hosting service (e-mail messages, databases, files) will be taken care of by its own group of web servers, so only one type of processes will run on a certain web server, that will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites even more. You can use HTML, Python, Perl, JavaScript and almost any other web development language for your Internet sites, due to the fact that they all can run on a Linux server. We also use the Apache web server, considering that our experience over time has proven that it is probably the very best software of its kind.
Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We've decided to use Linux on our servers also, due to the fact that no other OS can match its adaptability and without it, we wouldn't have had the opportunity to produce our custom hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are set up. The platform is made up of significant clusters of web servers, each addressing a certain part of the website hosting service - databases, email messages, files, the CP, and so forth. The effect of combining this custom setup with Linux is an exceptionally stable, secure and speedy service with basically no downtime. What's more, the web access is addressed by Apache, due to the fact that it's remarkably customizable and supports lots of modules and web programming languages which include PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, etcetera. Our semi-dedicated server packages will offer you all the speed and dependability that you would like for your sites and we have made a whole lot of software adjustments to make certain we'll fulfill our uptime guarantee.
