Linux is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for servers. There are many different distributions that use the same core, but the great majority have several things in common - they're free to use, which minimizes the overall cost of the website hosting service due to the fact that license fees won't be included in what you will have to pay; they are quite simple to maintain; and last, but not least, they are far more protected compared with competitor OSs, since random files, particularly virus-infected ones, simply can't be executed on the web server. Thus, you can enjoy a reliable service and spend the time developing and advertising your Internet sites, not worrying about basic safety problems. Loads of Linux-based machines use the Apache server to deal with the HTTP traffic, because this software system is very quick and is also easy to maintain and customize depending on the needs of the website hosting provider. A Linux hosting server with Apache is the best software environment for your Internet sites and it's not at all a coincidence that lots of popular script-driven applications on the market require LAMP, that stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
Stable Linux with Apache in Cloud Website Hosting
All the servers which are an integral part of our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform run Linux as a way to ensure their fast and reliable operation, which will in turn result in far better overall site performance. That's valid for each and every site that you host within a cloud website hosting account with our company. Every single part of the hosting service (e-mails, databases, files) will be managed by its own group of web servers, so only one type of processes will run on a given web server, which will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your websites even more. You may use HTML, JavaScript, PHP, Python, Perl and almost any other web development language for your Internet sites, since 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 shown that it is probably the ideal piece of software of its type.
Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have decided to use Linux on our servers also, since no other Operating System can match its overall flexibility and without it, we would not have had the means to produce our custom web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are created. The platform is made up of substantial groups of servers, each managing specific part of the web hosting service - databases, email messages, files, the Control Panel, and so on. The end result of combining this custom setup with Linux is a very stable, secure and quick service with zero downtime. Also, the web access is managed by Apache, simply because it's highly customizable and supports a considerable amount of modules and web programming languages which include PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, etcetera. Our semi-dedicated server packages will offer you all the speed and dependability you want for your Internet sites and we've made a lot of software adjustments to make sure that we shall fulfill our uptime guarantee.
