Linux is amongst the most widely used OSs for web servers. There are tens of different distributions using exactly the same core, but the majority have a few things in common - they're 100 % free to use, which decreases the total cost of the hosting service because license fees shall not be included in what you will need to pay; they are very easy to manage; and last, but not least, they're way more protected as compared with competitor Operating Systems, as random files, specifically virus-infected ones, just cannot be executed on the hosting server. Thus, you will be able to enjoy a reliable service and spend the time developing and advertising your web sites, not being concerned about security issues. A lot of Linux-based machines use the Apache server to deal with the HTTP traffic, because this software system is very quick and is also simple to maintain and personalize in accordance with the needs of the web hosting provider. A Linux server with Apache is the most suitable software environment for your Internet sites and it's not a coincidence that a number of popular script-driven applications out there require LAMP, which symbolizes Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've decided to use Linux on our machines as well, because no other OS can match its flexibility and without it, we would not have had the chance to develop our custom hosting platform in which all semi-dedicated server accounts are set up. The platform consists of huge clusters of machines, each one handling a specific part of the hosting service - databases, e-mail messages, files, the Control Panel, and so on. The effect of mixing this custom setup with Linux is a very reliable, protected and quick service with virtually no downtime. Furthermore, the web access is managed by Apache, since it's highly customizable and supports a considerable amount of modules and web programming languages including PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, etc. Our semi-dedicated server solutions will give you all the speed and security you want for your sites and we have made a lot of software improvements to ensure that we'll fulfill our uptime guarantee.
