Linux is an OS, which is not that commonly used for desktop machines, but is one of the most popular OSs for servers. It's absolutely free, so you will not have to pay any license charges as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is furthermore regarded as being the most secure Operating System available and because of the permissions which files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files which could infect a normal computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Moreover, the OS is totally free, so it can easily be customized without any restrictions, so as to match the needs of the website hosting provider and their customers. This also implies that unnecessary software packages can easily be removed to make the OS lighter and faster, which can directly lead to much better hosting server performance. A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, because this piece of software is also free, quick and stable. It is the most widely used web server around and is part of the LAMP bundle that many script applications, like WordPress and Joomla™, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
