Quality hosting services based in the UK
Since the birth of the web, web pages have needed somewhere to live. Far and away the most popular and arguably most robust solution, is a Linux server running Apache, MySQL and PHP – the four main ingredients of flexible, modern web hosting. This is commonly referred to as the “LAMP stack” – (L)inux/(A)pache/(M)ySQL/(P)HP!
Why do we love LAMP so much? (and we do, we really do love it)
Firstly, and of undoubtedly great importance, the solutions powered by LAMP technology are extremely cost-effective. An example of this is where you may wish to serve the same database content through a variety of brands / web sites. Proprietary software vendors might have made this complicated in the bad old days, but LAMP’s popularity and prominence are due to its flexibility in this regard; you can easily “glue” together apparently disparate parts of a system to build your solution.
This approach isn’t always necessary, though. Out of the box, Linux-based systems provide an extremely flexible yet secure environment for your web site. You are free to install open source software which can power your business marketing communications, file-sharing and collaboration software offer a more effective office environment, and effective anti-spam and firewall filtering keeps the cruft out of the way, allowing you to stay focused on the task in hand.
