Linux is one of the frequently used Operating Systems for servers. There are a number of different distributions that use exactly the same core, but the vast majority have a number of things in common - they are free to use, which cuts down the total cost of the hosting service because license fees shall not be included in what you will have to pay; they are quite simple to take care of; and last, but not least, they're a lot more secure in comparison with competitor Operating Systems, as random files, particularly virus-infected ones, simply cannot be executed on the hosting server. That way, you’re able to enjoy a protected service and spend the time building and promoting your web sites, not worrying about basic safety issues. Many Linux-based machines use the Apache server to deal with the HTTP traffic, since this software is really quick and is also easy to maintain and modify depending on the needs of the web hosting provider. A Linux hosting server with Apache is the most suitable software environment for your Internet sites and it's not a coincidence that a lot of popular script-driven apps out there require LAMP, that refers to Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
Stable Linux with Apache in Shared Hosting
All the web servers that are part of our progressive cloud web hosting platform run Linux as a way to guarantee their fast and stable operations, which will subsequently give you better overall website performance. That's valid for each site that you host in a shared hosting account with us. Every part of the web hosting service (emails, databases, files) shall be taken care of by its own cluster of web servers, so just one type of processes will run on a given hosting server, that will contribute to the rapid loading speed of your Internet sites even more. You may use HTML, JavaScript, PHP, Perl, Python and just about any other web development language for your websites, because they all can run on a Linux server. In addition we use the Apache web server, since our experience throughout the years has shown that it is probably the most effective piece of software of its sort.
Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are created on a cutting-edge specialized platform. An independent group of servers handles each service - databases, e-mails, files, etcetera., and considering that we highly value the benefits of an easy to customize, protected and dependable Operating System, all the machines that form the clusters run Linux. The Operating system allows us to make the necessary changes, not to mention the higher speed, because only 1 type of process runs on the web server, contrary to the traditional web hosting platform offered by most companies in which everything runs on a single machine. In addition, we use the Apache web server too. We've tested its functionality throughout the years, so we have confirmed that it will give us as a provider and you as a client the needed speed and versatility for the most effective Internet site performance.
