We have just launched our new Hosting Plans on FreeBSD
FreeBSD is an open-source operating system (OS) designed specifically for the unique needs of server environment, including web, email, and file servers. It has it roots firmly planted in academia: the OS itself was derived from BSD UNIX, the version of UNIX developed at the University of California, Berkeley. FreeBSD is one of the common "Unix-like" operating systems, a list that includes Linux, a Unix clone written from scratch by Linus Torvalds. In fact, many people regard FreeBSD as an official Unix operating system and refer to Linux as a "Unix-like" OS
|Why FreeBSD ?
FreeBSD differs from Linux at many levels. Linux is a kernel, not a complete OS, meaning Linux is just one component of a complete distribution. FreeBSD is distributed as a complete, ready-to-function package just like common desktop operating systems like Microsoft Windows. Unlike Linux, which has many individuals and organizations creating multiple distributions, there is only one official source for FreeBSD. Many argue this centralized distribution contributes to the remarkable stability of the FreeBSD operating system. Read why you should choose FreeBSD Hosting ?
