Linux is among the most widely used OSs for servers. There are tens of different distributions that use exactly the same core, but the vast majority have several things in common - they're free to use, which decreases the total cost of the hosting service because license fees shall not be included in what you have to pay; they're quite simple to maintain; and last, but not least, they are considerably more protected than competitor OSs, because random files, specifically virus-infected ones, can't be executed on the hosting server. In this way, you can enjoy a reliable service and spend the time building and promoting your web sites, not worrying about safety issues. Many Linux-based machines use the Apache server to manage the HTTP traffic, because this software is really fast and is also easy 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 sites and it is not a coincidence that lots of popular script-driven apps on the market require LAMP, which signifies Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We've made a decision to use Linux on our servers too, since no other Operating System can match its overall flexibility and without it, we wouldn't have had the chance to develop our custom hosting platform in which all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created. The platform consists of massive clusters of machines, each one managing particular part of the website hosting service - databases, emails, files, the CP, and so on. The consequence of merging this custom setup with Linux is an exceptionally stable, protected and quick service with virtually no downtime. In addition, the web access is handled by Apache, since it's highly customizable and supports a whole lot of modules and web programming languages such as PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, etcetera. Our semi-dedicated server packages will provide you with all the speed and stability that you would like for your websites and we've made a considerable amount of software adjustments to ensure that we'll meet our uptime guarantee.
