Linux is one of the frequently used Operating Systems for servers. There are a number of different distributions using the exact same core, but the majority have several things in common - they're 100 % free to use, which decreases the total cost of the web hosting service as license fees won't be included in what you will have to pay; they're easy to manage; and last, but not least, they are much more secure than competitor Operating Systems, because random files, specifically virus-infected ones, just can't be executed on the hosting server. Thus, you are able to enjoy a secure service and spend the time developing and advertising your websites, not worrying about security issues. Loads of Linux-based machines use the Apache server to handle the HTTP traffic, since this piece of software is really fast and is also uncomplicated to maintain and customize depending on the requirements of the web hosting provider. A Linux web server with Apache is the most suitable software environment for your Internet sites and it's not a coincidence that numerous popular script-driven apps these days require LAMP, that signifies Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have chosen to use Linux on our servers as well, since no other OS can match its overall flexibility and without it, we wouldn't have had the opportunity to create our custom web hosting platform in which all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created. The platform incorporates big clusters of servers, each managing certain part of the web hosting service - databases, email messages, files, the Control Panel, etc. The consequence of combining this custom setup with Linux is a very stable, secure and fast service with virtually no downtime. Additionally, the web access is handled by Apache, due to the fact that it's remarkably customizable and supports a lot of modules and web programming languages like PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, etc. Our semi-dedicated server plans will give you all the speed and dependability you want for your websites and we have made a whole lot of software improvements to ensure that we will meet our uptime guarantee.
