The Home of Linux Web Hosting Excellence

linux web hostingEven if you don’t use Linux to run your desktop PC, you can certainly take advantage of the Linux Hosting offered at A2 Hosting. The operating system you use for your desktop PC should not impact your choice of web hosts. Linux web servers make hosting easy. The primary hosting tasks are almost identical for both Linux and Windows web servers, but the advantages found with Linux hosting are vast. 

A Brief Look at Linux

Linux is an Open-Source, UNIX-based operating system. Unix is powerful, designed for multitasking and built to be used by a number of people at once. Linux is specifically praised for its functionality, adaptability and robustness.

What Is Linux Hosting?

A simple explanation is “web hosting on a Linux-based server allowing developers to create their site within the Linux Operating System”. A Linux server allows web developers to use popular and powerful open-source programs like PHP, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Python, Ruby, SSH and many more to build their site.

Do I Need to Know How to Use Linux to Use A2 Hosting’s Servers?

No. A benefit of hosting your site at A2 Hosting is that you get to experience all of the advantages of Linux Hosting (explained below), but you don’t necessarily need to know how to use Linux thanks to the cPanel control panel. cPanel makes web hosting account management a breeze even for those who are brand new to the Linux server hosting environment. Easily manage your email, software, databases, domains and more all within cPanel's intuitive interface.

Main Advantages of Linux Hosting From A2 Hosting

Since a server’s operating system controls the basic, vital functions of the server, it is important to be aware of the advantages you will experience when choosing our Linux hosting.

In addition to the amazing hosting support that A2 Hosting customers receive from the Guru Crew, keep in mind that Linux has a huge, active network of helpful developers. You will have access to this invaluable support community. With such a large number of developers, Linux is a very progressive platform because new ideas are rapidly created and more innovative work can be done within the community. The many advantages of Linux Hosting ultimately stem from this huge developer community.

Linux hosting in general has a well earned reputation for stability and security. This can once again be attributed to the gigantic open-source community of developers, all of which work tirelessly to find, patch and fix any bugs that are discovered.

You also get the advantage of using Open Source software, which is generally for your free. This cost-effectiveness means you'll be able to spend your available resources on activities like promoting your site or project instead of on costly software.

Yes, we offer 20X faster Turbo Server Hosting. You get an additional speed boost hosting your sites on our Linux platform because the OS is known for speed and performance as well. The speed and performance of Linux can actually be attributed to another key benefit, its flexibility. Linux is flexible in the sense that it is highly suited to be a finely tuned configuration. This allows our system administrators to configure our Linux servers to perform at an optimal level.
