Linux is amongst the most popular OSs for servers. There are quite a few different distributions using the same core, but the vast majority have a number of things in common - they are free to use, which lessens the overall cost of the hosting service due to the fact that license fees shall not be included in what you have to pay; they're very easy to manage; and last, but not least, they are a lot more protected than competitor Operating Systems, since random files, especially virus-infected ones, can't be executed on the server. In this way, you will be able to enjoy a protected service and spend the time developing and advertising your web sites, not being concerned about safety problems. Loads of Linux-based machines use the Apache web server to deal with the HTTP traffic, as this software is incredibly quick and is also simple to maintain and individualize depending on the needs of the web hosting provider. A Linux hosting server with Apache is the ideal software environment for your Internet sites and it's not a coincidence that a lot of popular script-driven applications available on the market require LAMP, which signifies Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
Stable Linux with Apache in Cloud Website Hosting
All the web servers which are an integral part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform run Linux as a way to ensure their fast and reliable operations, that will consequently lead to superior overall site functionality. This is valid for any site that you host within a cloud website hosting account with our company. Every part of the hosting service (email messages, databases, files) will be taken care of by its own group of web servers, so only one type of processes will run on a certain server, that will contribute to the amazing loading speed of your websites even more. You may use HTML, Perl, Python, JavaScript and any other web development language for your Internet sites, as they all can run on a Linux machine. We also use the Apache web server, considering that our experience over time indicates that this is probably the most effective piece of software of its type.
Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have chosen to use Linux on our web servers too, given that no other OS can match its adaptability and without it, we would not have had the chance to create our custom hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are set up. The platform includes large clusters of machines, each dealing with a specific part of the hosting service - databases, e-mails, files, the CP, and so on. The end result of blending this custom setup with Linux is an extremely stable, risk-free and fast service with virtually no downtime. Also, the web access is addressed by Apache, since it is extremely customizable and supports lots of modules and web programming languages such as PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, etcetera. Our semi-dedicated server packages will provide you with all the speed and security that you would like for your Internet sites and we have made many software adjustments to make certain we'll meet our uptime guarantee.
