Linux is among the frequently used OSs for web servers. There are quite a few different distributions that use exactly the same core, but the majority have a few things in common - they're free to use, which decreases the total cost of the website 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're much more protected than competitor Operating Systems, as random files, specifically virus-infected ones, can't be executed on the web server. That way, you’re able to enjoy a secure service and spend the time developing and advertising your Internet sites, not bothering with security problems. Many Linux-based machines use the Apache server to deal with the HTTP traffic, as this software system is really quick and is also easy to maintain and individualize depending on the needs of the hosting provider. A Linux server with Apache is the best software environment for your sites and it's not a coincidence that a number of popular script-driven applications nowadays require LAMP, that refers to Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
Stable Linux with Apache in Shared Hosting
All of the servers which are an integral part of our progressive cloud hosting platform run Linux in order to ensure their fast and secure functioning, which will consequently contribute to far better overall website efficiency. That's valid for each site that you host in a shared hosting account with us. Every single part of the website hosting service (email messages, databases, files) shall be addressed by its own cluster of web servers, so just one type of processes shall 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 just about any other web development language for your sites, because they all can run on a Linux machine. Additionally we use the Apache web server, considering that our experience over time has proven that this is probably the perfect piece of software of its kind.
Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are created on a cutting-edge custom made platform. An independent cluster of servers deals with every single service - databases, emails, files, and so forth., and considering the fact that we highly prize the benefits of a customizable, protected and dependable OS, all the machines which make up the groups run Linux. The OS allows us to make the necessary modifications, not to mention the higher speed, as only 1 type of process runs on the web server, in contrast to the standard web hosting platform offered by most companies where everything runs on one hosting server. Additionally, we use the Apache web server too. We have evaluated its capabilities over time, so we've confirmed that it will give us as a provider and you as a client the desired speed and overall flexibility for the best possible Internet site performance.
