Linux is among the most popular OSs for web servers. There are several different distributions which use exactly the same core, but the vast majority have a few things in common - they're absolutely free to use, which decreases the total cost of the web hosting service because license fees shall not be included in what you'll have to pay; they're very easy to maintain; and last, but not least, they're far more secure in comparison with competitor Operating Systems, as random files, particularly virus-infected ones, just cannot be executed on the web server. This way, you will be able to enjoy a protected service and spend the time developing and advertising your web sites, not being concerned about security problems. Many Linux-based machines use the Apache web server to manage the HTTP traffic, since this software system is extremely fast and is also simple to maintain and personalize as per the needs of the hosting provider. A Linux web server with Apache is the ideal software environment for your Internet sites and it is not a coincidence that a lot of popular script-driven applications nowadays require LAMP, which symbolizes Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
Stable Linux with Apache in Shared Website Hosting
All of the servers which are an element of our innovative cloud web hosting platform run Linux so as to ensure their fast and stable operations, which will in turn contribute to far better overall website functionality. That's valid for each site that you host within a shared website hosting account with our company. Every part of the website hosting service (emails, databases, files) will be addressed by its own cluster of machines, so just one type of processes shall run on a given hosting server, that will contribute to the fast loading speed of your websites even more. You may use HTML, Perl, Python, JavaScript and any other web development language for your websites, as they all can run on a Linux server. We also use the Apache web server, for the reason that our experience throughout the years has proven that this is probably the very best software of its sort.
Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have chosen to use Linux on our web servers too, given that no other OS can match its versatility and without it, we would not have had the means to build our custom website hosting platform in which all semi-dedicated server accounts are created. The platform is made up of huge groups of servers, each one managing particular part of the web hosting service - databases, emails, files, the Control Panel, and so forth. The consequence of mixing this custom setup with Linux is an incredibly reliable, risk-free and quick service with basically no downtime. Additionally, the web access is handled 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 give you all the speed and dependability that you want for your Internet sites and we have made a great deal of software improvements to make certain that we shall meet our uptime guarantee.
