Linux is among the most widely used Operating Systems for web servers. There are a number of different distributions that use the exact same core, but the majority have a few things in common - they're totally free to use, which lessens the total cost of the hosting service as license fees will not be included in what you have to pay; they are quite simple to maintain; and last, but not least, they are significantly more protected in comparison with competitor OSs, because random files, particularly virus-infected ones, just can't be executed on the hosting server. That way, you can enjoy a secure service and spend the time building and promoting your web sites, not bothering with basic safety issues. Countless Linux-based machines use the Apache server to handle the HTTP traffic, because this software is extremely fast and is also very easy to maintain and customize in accordance with the needs of the web hosting provider. A Linux server with Apache is the ideal software environment for your sites and it is not a coincidence that lots of popular script-driven applications nowadays require LAMP, that refers to Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
Stable Linux with Apache in Cloud Web Hosting
All of the servers which are an element of our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform run Linux so as to guarantee their fast and secure operation, which will subsequently give you better overall site functionality. This is valid for any website that you host in a cloud web hosting account with us. Every single part of the website hosting service (emails, databases, files) shall be addressed by its own cluster of web servers, so only one type of processes shall run on a certain web server, which will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your sites even more. You may use HTML, JavaScript, PHP, Python, Perl and almost any other web development language for your websites, due to the fact that they all can run on a Linux hosting server. In addition we use the Apache web server, because our experience throughout the years has shown that it is probably the best software of its kind.
Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have chosen to use Linux on our servers as well, because no other Operating System can match its overall flexibility and without it, we wouldn't have had the opportunity to build our custom hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are set up. The platform consists of significant groups of web servers, each one handling a specific part of the hosting service - databases, emails, files, the Control Panel, and so forth. The end result of blending this custom setup with Linux is an extremely stable, secure and speedy service with zero downtime. Furthermore, the web access is managed by Apache, for the reason that it's highly customizable and supports lots of modules and web programming languages which include PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, etcetera. Our semi-dedicated server plans will provide you with all the speed and security that you would like for your Internet sites and we've made a considerable amount of software modifications to be certain that we will fulfill our uptime guarantee.
