Linux is a well known Operating System, that's commonly used for web servers, because it provides a variety of advantages over other Operating Systems. It is considered to be the most secure OS available and because of the way it works, infected files will simply not work. As Linux is totally free to use, no license fees shall be included to the price which you'll have to pay for your hosting service. That, consequently, allows for the provider to customize the OS based on what they and their customers require, taking away unnecessary packages to enhance the Operating system and the server’s performance. Linux servers typically feature the Apache web server software, that processes Internet site access requests. Apache is also 100 % free and customizable, not to mention that it is extremely fast and light with regard to the system resources it requires. LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) is the software environment which many of the most popular script apps require – WordPress, Moodle, Joomla, etc. The LAMP configuration is the most frequently used one worldwide, because it is stable and easy to maintain.
Stable Linux with Apache in Shared Hosting
All the servers that are a part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform run Linux to be able to guarantee their fast and stable operations, which will subsequently result in superior overall website functionality. This is valid for any site that you host in a shared hosting account with our company. Every single part of the hosting service (e-mails, databases, files) shall be handled by its own cluster of machines, so just one type of processes will run on a given server, which will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites even more. You may use HTML, JavaScript, PHP, Python, Perl and just about any other web development language for your sites, since they all can run on a Linux web server. We also use the Apache web server, considering that our experience throughout the years indicates that this is probably the very best piece of software of its type.
Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are created on a cutting-edge custom platform. A separate cluster of servers handles every single service - databases, e-mail messages, files, and so forth., and considering that we highly appreciate the pros of a personalized, secure and reliable OS, all of the web servers which make up the clusters run Linux. The Operating system allows us to make the required modifications, not to mention the higher speed, as only one type of process runs on the web server, in contrast to the typical website hosting platform made available from most companies in which everything runs on one hosting server. Additionally, we use the Apache web server also. We've tested its capabilities over time, so we have confirmed that it could give us as a provider and you as a customer the desired speed and flexibility for the best achievable site performance.
