Linux is an operating system that is well known for being minimally resource intensive and allowing a lot of flexibility. This is possible because it doesn’t run as many things in the background, which frees up the system resources to focus on the job at hand. For many people, this can be more confusing, which is why it is not too popular with personal computers. For web hosting, however, it is the most popular solution because webmasters don’t actually need to interact with the actual operating system very often.
Linux based hosting is the most popular option for virtually every type of website out there. From the smallest personal blogs to massive corporate sites, Linux can run them all. If you are starting a site of any type and you want to make sure you have the best hosting at the best price, Linux is a great way to go.
