Linux is an OS, that isn't that commonly used for desktop machines, but is one of the most widely used OSs for web servers. It is 100 free, so it can be customized without any limits, so as to match the needs of the website hosting provider and their customers. This also means that unneeded software packages can easily be removed to make the OS lighter and much faster, which could directly lead to a lot better server performance. A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, since this software is also totally free, fast and secure. It is the most frequently used web server around and is an element of the LAMP bundle that many script apps, such as Joomla and WordPress, require. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Cloud Website Hosting

All of the servers that are part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform run Linux in order to ensure their fast and stable functioning, that will in turn contribute to better overall site functionality. That's valid for every single website that you host in a cloud website hosting account with our company. Each part of the website hosting service (e-mail messages, databases, files) will be handled by its own group of machines, so only 1 type of processes shall run on a particular machine, which will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites even more. You may use HTML, Python, Perl, JavaScript and almost any other web development language for your Internet sites, because they all can run on a Linux hosting server. We use the Apache web server, since our experience through the years has shown that it is probably the best piece of software of its sort.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on a cutting-edge custom made platform. An individual cluster of web servers handles each service - databases, email messages, files, etc., and since we highly value the benefits of a custom-made, secure and reliable OS, all of the machines which make up the groups run Linux. The Operating system enables us to make the critical adjustments, not to mention the increased speed, as just one type of process runs on the web server, unlike the regular web hosting platform offered by most companies where everything runs on a single hosting server. Furthermore, we use the Apache web server as well. We've evaluated its functionality over time, so we have confirmed that it can give us as a provider and you as a customer the needed speed and adaptability for the best achievable site performance.
