Linux is one of the most widely used Operating Systems for servers. There are a number of different distributions using exactly the same core, but the great majority have several things in common - they are 100 % free to use, which minimizes the overall cost of the web hosting service since license fees won't be included in what you'll have to pay; they're quite simple to maintain; and last, but not least, they are significantly more protected in comparison with competitor OSs, since random files, specifically virus-infected ones, just cannot be executed on the server. This way, you’ll be able to enjoy a secure service and spend the time creating and advertising your websites, not worrying about security issues. 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 very fast and is also easy to maintain and individualize in accordance with the needs of the hosting provider. A Linux web server with Apache is the ideal software environment for your websites and it is not a coincidence that a lot of popular script-driven apps out there require LAMP, that stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Cloud Website Hosting

All the web servers which are part of our progressive cloud web hosting platform run Linux in order to ensure their fast and stable operation, which will in turn contribute to much better overall website functionality. That's valid for each and every website that you host inside a cloud website hosting account with us. Every single part of the hosting service (e-mails, databases, files) will be handled by its own cluster of web servers, so only 1 type of processes will run on a particular web server, that will contribute to the fast loading speed of your sites even more. You can use HTML, Perl, Python, JavaScript and almost any other web development language for your Internet sites, because they all can run on a Linux web server. In addition we use the Apache web server, as our experience through the years indicates that this is probably the perfect software of its kind.
