Linux is one of the most widely used OSs for servers. There are a number of different distributions using exactly the same core, but the majority have a few things in common - they're free to use, which minimizes the total cost of the website hosting service since license fees won't be included in what you will have to pay; they're quite simple to take care of; and last, but not least, they're significantly more secure than competitor OSs, as random files, particularly virus-infected ones, simply can't be executed on the hosting server. This way, you are able to enjoy a protected service and spend the time developing and advertising your websites, not being concerned about security issues. Loads of Linux-based machines use the Apache server to handle the HTTP traffic, as this software system is extremely fast and is also very easy to maintain and individualize in accordance with the needs of the website hosting provider. A Linux hosting server with Apache is the most suitable software environment for your sites and it isn't a coincidence that numerous popular script-driven apps these days require LAMP, that stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have made a decision to use Linux on our web servers too, given that no other Operating System can match its overall flexibility and without it, we wouldn't have had the chance to produce our custom website hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server
accounts are set up. The platform is made up of big clusters of web servers, each dealing with a specific part of the hosting service - databases, e-mail messages, files, the CP, etc. The consequence of combining this custom setup with Linux is an exceptionally stable, risk-free and quick service with virtually no downtime. Also, the web access is managed by Apache, as it is highly customizable and supports a considerable amount of modules and web programming languages such as PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, and so on. Our semi-dedicated server packages will give you all the speed and stability that you would like for your websites and we have made a whole lot of software adjustments to ensure that we will fulfill our uptime guarantee.
