Linux is an OS, which is not that popular for desktop machines, but is among the most commonly used OSs for servers. It is totally free, so you will not have to pay any license fees as part of your web hosting payments. Linux is furthermore considered to be the most reliable Operating System around and due to the permissions that files have and the file types that can be run, virus files which can infect an average computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based web server. Also, the Operating System is totally free, so it can easily be modified without any constraints, so that it will suit the needs of the hosting provider and their clients. This also implies that needless software packages may be removed to make the OS lighter and quicker, that may directly lead to far better hosting server performance. A large number of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, due to the fact that this program is also 100 % free, fast and reliable. It's the most frequently used web server available and is part of the LAMP bundle that lots of script apps, including Joomla and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

That's valid for any site that you host within a cloud website hosting account with our company. Every single part of the hosting service (e-mail messages, databases, files) shall be handled by its own cluster of machines, so just one type of processes shall run on a particular server, which will contribute to the amazing loading speed of your sites even more. You can use HTML, JavaScript, PHP, Python, Perl and any other web development language for your sites, because they all can run on a Linux hosting server. We also use the Apache web server, considering that our experience through the years has shown that this is probably the perfect 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. A separate cluster of servers manages each individual service - databases, emails, files, etcetera., and considering that we highly prize the benefits of a customizable, secure and reliable Operating System, all the machines which make up the groups run Linux. The Operating system allows us to make the needed improvements, not to mention the raised speed, as only 1 type of process runs on the server, unlike the regular web hosting platform made available from most companies in which everything runs on a single web server. In addition, we use the Apache web server as well. We have tested its functionality throughout the years, so we've confirmed that it can give us as a provider and you as a client the needed speed and versatility for the absolute best web site performance.
