Stable Linux with Apache in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We've chosen to use Linux on our servers also, since no other Operating System can match its flexibility and without it, we would not have had the chance to build our custom website hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server
accounts are set up. The platform consists of substantial groups of web servers, each one dealing with a particular part of the hosting service - databases, emails, files, the Control Panel, and so forth. The effect of blending this custom setup with Linux is an incredibly stable, risk-free and speedy service with zero downtime. Furthermore, the web access is addressed by Apache, since it's extremely customizable and supports a considerable amount of modules and web programming languages like PHP, Perl, Python, HTML, and so forth. Our semi-dedicated server plans will provide you with all the speed and security that you would like for your websites and we've made a whole lot of software tweaks to make certain we will meet our uptime guarantee.
