It's regarded as the most reliable Operating system available and because of the way it works, corrupted files will simply not work.

This, in turn, enables the provider to personalize the OS in accordance with what they and their customers require, getting rid of unwanted packages to boost the OS and the server’s efficiency. Linux servers usually feature the Apache server software, that processes site access requests. Apache is additionally totally free and easy to personalize, not to mention that it's incredibly quick and light with regard to the system resources it requires.
