Linux is amongst the most popular OSs for web servers. There are a number of different distributions which use exactly the same core, but the vast majority have a few things in common - they're totally free to use, which lessens the total cost of the hosting service as license fees won't be included in what you have to pay; they are very easy to maintain; and last, but not least, they are a lot more protected compared with competitor Operating Systems, since random files, specifically virus-infected ones, just cannot be executed on the web server. That way, you are able to enjoy a secure service and spend the time building and advertising your web sites, not worrying about security problems. Countless Linux-based machines use the Apache web server to manage the HTTP traffic, since this piece of software is really fast and is also uncomplicated to maintain and customize depending on the requirements of the website hosting provider. A Linux hosting server with Apache is the most suitable software environment for your Internet sites and it's not a coincidence that many popular script-driven apps these days require LAMP, which signifies Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have decided to use Linux on our web servers also, because no other OS can match its flexibility and without it, we wouldn't have had the opportunity to build our custom web hosting platform in which all semi-dedicated server
accounts are set up. The platform consists of massive groups of web servers, each one addressing a certain part of the web hosting service - databases, email messages, files, the Control Panel, and so forth. The end result of combining this custom setup with Linux is an incredibly reliable, protected and quick service with zero downtime. Furthermore, the web access is handled by Apache, because it is remarkably customizable and supports a whole lot of modules and web programming languages including PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, and so forth. Our semi-dedicated server solutions will provide you with all the speed and security you want for your sites and we've made a great deal of software modifications to be certain that we will meet our uptime guarantee.
