It's totally free, so you shall not need to pay any license costs as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is furthermore thought of as the most risk-free Operating System available and due to the permissions that files have as well as the file types that can be run, virus files that can easily infect a regular computer will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Also, the OS is totally free, so it can easily be altered without any restrictions, so that it will suit the needs of the web hosting company and their customers. This also means that needless software packages could be removed to make the Operating system lighter and swifter, which could directly result in far better hosting server performance. Numerous Linux machines have the Apache web server installed on them, as this software is also absolutely free, fast and stable. It is the most commonly used web server out there and is a part of the LAMP bundle that numerous script applications, such as Joomla™ and WordPress, require.
