It's free of charge, so you shall not have to pay any license costs as part of your website hosting payments. Linux is also thought to be the most secure OS nowadays and thanks to the permissions which files have along with the file types that can be run, virus files that could infect a regular PC will simply not be executed on a Linux-based server. Furthermore, the OS is absolutely free, so it could be changed without any restrictions, in order to suit the needs of the website hosting company and their customers. This also suggests that unnecessary software packages may be removed to make the OS lighter and quicker, which could directly contribute to significantly better hosting server performance. A lot of Linux machines have the Apache web server set up on them, as this piece of software is also absolutely free, fast and reliable. It's the most commonly used web server out there and is an element of the LAMP bundle that lots of script apps, including Joomla and WordPress, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
