Linux is among the most popular Operating Systems for web servers. There are quite a few different distributions that use exactly the same core, but the vast majority have a couple of things in common - they're free to use, which decreases the total cost of the hosting service because license fees will not be included in what you'll have to pay; they are quite simple to manage; and last, but not least, they are considerably more secure as compared with competitor OSs, because random files, specifically virus-infected ones, just cannot be executed on the web server. This way, you can enjoy a reliable service and spend the time developing and advertising your websites, not worrying about basic safety problems. A lot of Linux-based machines use the Apache web server to handle the HTTP traffic, due to the fact that this software system is really fast and is also easy to maintain and individualize as per the needs of the web hosting provider. A Linux server with Apache is the ideal software environment for your sites and it's not at all a coincidence that a lot of popular script-driven applications out there require LAMP, that refers to Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Cloud Hosting

All the servers that are an element of our groundbreaking cloud website hosting platform run Linux to be able to guarantee their fast and stable operations, that will in turn result in superior overall website functionality. That's valid for every site that you host within a cloud hosting account with us. Each and every part of the hosting service (email messages, databases, files) will be taken care of by its own group of machines, so only one type of processes will run on a given server, that will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your Internet sites even more. You can use HTML, JavaScript, PHP, Perl, Python and any other web development language for your sites, because they all can run on a Linux server. In addition we use the Apache web server, because our experience over time has proven that it is probably the most effective piece of software of its kind.
