Why Linux?

What is Linux?

Linux is a computer operating system assembled under the model of free and open source
software development and distribution.

What does free and open source mean?

Linux is one of the best widely known examples of free and open source
software collaboration. This means that all the underlying source code
can be used, freely modified, and redistributed, both commercially and
non-commercially by anyone under licenses such as the GNU General                                     
Public License.

Why does InMotion Hosting use Linux?

  1. Linux is well supported by the major distributors and security problems are typically fixed before the issue is ever made public, which means your data is more secure than with many other operating systems.
  2. Linux is easily customized, which allows us to adapt our hosting environment quickly, providing you the best possible service.
  3. We use the 'CentOS' distribution of Linux, which has the same long term software support provided by RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).
