Linux is a well known OS, that is widely used for web servers, as it has a range of advantages over other OSs. It is viewed as the most secure OS these days and due to the way it works, corrupted files will simply not work. As Linux is free to use, no license fees will be added to the price you will have to pay for your website hosting service. This, subsequently, allows for the provider to personalize the OS based on what they and their clients need, taking away unnecessary packages to enhance the Operating system and the server’s efficiency. Linux servers often include the Apache web server software, that processes website access requests. Apache is also absolutely free and easy to customize, not to mention that it's really quick and light in terms of the system resources it requires. LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) is the software environment that a number of the most widely used script applications require – Moodle, WordPress, Joomla™, etcetera. The LAMP configuration is the most popular one across the world, since it's stable and simple to maintain.
