It is 100 % free, so you shall not have to pay any license costs as part of your hosting payments. Linux is furthermore considered to be the most secure OS available and because of the permissions that files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files which can easily infect a regular personal computer shall simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Moreover, the Operating System is free, so it could be modified without any constraints, in order to match the requirements of the website hosting provider and their customers. This also means that unneeded software packages may be removed to make the Operating system lighter and quicker, that can directly lead to significantly better hosting server performance. Numerous Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, because this application is also free, quick and stable. It is the most widely used web server available and is part of the LAMP bundle that lots of script apps, like Joomla and WordPress, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
