Linux is an OS, which is not that commonly used for desktop machines, but is one of the most frequently used OSs for web servers. It's absolutely free, so you won't need to pay any license costs as part of your hosting payments. Linux is also considered to be the most secure OS available and because of the permissions that files have and also the file types that can be run, virus files which can easily infect a regular PC will simply not be executed on a Linux-based hosting server. Furthermore, the OS is free, so it could be modified without any constraints, in order to match the needs of the website hosting company and their clients. This also means that unwanted software packages could be removed to make the Operating system lighter and faster, which can directly lead 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 free, quick and secure. It's the most widely used web server out there and is a part of the LAMP bundle that a great many script applications, like WordPress and Joomla, need. LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
