Just as Windows, Linux is a very popular computer operating system. Its popularity is mainly due to its application model, which is of the free and open source kind. You can get, share, alter, and even re-distribute the software. Linux hosting is therefore very popular. This is particularly so due to the fact that the system is easily available and runs very well on most desktops, laptops, and other computers. Linux website hosting let users take full advantage of open source technologies and platforms.
Such considerations include database server software, scripting software, and operating system. Most hosting providers provide LINUX-BASED WEB HOSTING which offers a wide range of different software. A typical configuration for a Linux server is the LAMP platform: Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP/Perl/Python.
