Linux is an OS, which is not that frequently used for desktop machines, but is among the most widely used OSs for servers. It is 100 free, so it can be modified without any restrictions, so that it will match the needs of the web hosting provider and their clients. This also means that unneeded software packages may be removed to make the Operating system lighter and quicker, that may directly lead to much better server performance. Numerous Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, because this program is also free, fast and reliable. It's the most frequently used web server around and is an element of the LAMP bundle that numerous script apps, such as Joomla and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
