Linux is one of the frequently used Operating Systems for servers. There are quite a few different distributions that use the same core, but the greater part have a few things in common - they're absolutely free to use, which minimizes the overall cost of the web hosting service since license fees won't be included in what you need to pay; they're very easy to manage; and last, but not least, they are considerably more secure as compared with competitor OSs, because random files, especially virus-infected ones, simply can't be executed on the web server. That way, you’ll be able to enjoy a reliable service and spend the time building and promoting your websites, not bothering with safety problems. A lot of Linux-based machines use the Apache web server to handle the HTTP traffic, because this software system is incredibly quick and is also simple to maintain and individualize depending on the requirements of the hosting provider. A Linux hosting server with Apache is the most suitable software environment for your websites and it's not at all a coincidence that a lot of popular script-driven apps nowadays require LAMP, that stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

The platform incorporates massive clusters of servers, each one addressing a certain part of the hosting service - databases, e-mails, files, the CP, etc. The consequence of combining this custom setup with Linux is an exceptionally reliable, protected and speedy service with basically no downtime. Additionally, the web access is addressed by Apache, because it's exceptionally customizable and supports lots of modules and web programming languages which include PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, and so on. Our semi-dedicated server solutions will provide you with all the speed and security that you want for your Internet sites and we have made a lot of software tweaks to make certain we'll meet our uptime guarantee.
