Linux is amongst the most popular Operating Systems for web servers. There are several different distributions that use exactly the same core, but the great majority have a number of things in common - they're absolutely free to use, which lessens the total cost of the website hosting service as license fees won't be included in what you'll have to pay; they are easy to take care of; and last, but not least, they're much more secure than competitor Operating Systems, as random files, specifically virus-infected ones, just can't be executed on the web server. That way, you can enjoy a protected service and spend the time creating and advertising your websites, not bothering with basic safety problems. Loads of Linux-based machines use the Apache server to handle the HTTP traffic, as this software system is very quick and is also uncomplicated to maintain and modify in accordance with the requirements of the hosting provider. A Linux hosting server with Apache is the perfect software environment for your websites and it's not at all a coincidence that a lot of popular script-driven applications available on the market require LAMP, which refers to Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Hosting

What's more, the web access is managed by Apache, as it's remarkably customizable and supports many modules and web programming languages which include PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, etc. Our semi-dedicated server plans will give you all the speed and stability you want for your sites and we've made many software modifications to make certain that we will fulfill our uptime guarantee.
