We have used Linux since 2000 when it was first available. Previously we used BSD Unix. Open source has the advantage that when the developer becomes unavailable then the code can be maintained by new developers. Open source has allowed developers from around the world to flourish while reducing costs.
The main focus of the site is the LAMP stack however Linux can also provide many other services as needed. BIND is the domain controller that is widely used by registrars to manage subscriptions.
