Linux Server Hosting

High-performance Linux hosting, backed by in-house expertise

What is Linux?

Linux is the best known and most used server operating system for demanding web environments, modelled on UNIX. As an open-source operating system, Linux sits underneath all other software on a computer, receiving requests from programs and relaying these requests to the computer’s hardware.


Why use a Linux server?

Linux is the preferred OS for web servers, WordPress builds, Dreamweaver applications and MySQL databases. Linux server hosting is ideal if you are using PHP, MySQL, Ruby. Python or Perl programming languages, or if your website displays information in newsletter, brochure or data sheet formats.

Benefits of hosting a Linux server with Hyve

High availability built-in

We only offer high-availability platforms. We offer replication and load balancing across data centres. This means that if there is a fatal incident at one DC, your traffic can automatically be routed to a secondary location in a matter of seconds.

Resilient power & cooling

Our data centres all offer multiple layers of redundancy for power and cooling, from a minimum of N+1 at some sites, right through to N+N at others. Power is fed diversely from separate national grids with UPS and on-site generators available to take over where necessary, ensuring no drop in service.

What is the difference between Linux and Windows servers?

Windows and Linux are two very different types of operating systems – each with unique advantages. Both Windows and Linux will work on any PC regardless of the operating system, but they both have their own distinctive characteristics. Find out more about the differences in our blog.
