    A Linux dedicated server is a powerful computer running the Linux operating system that’s dedicated solely to your needs. It’s like having your own private data center, offering complete control, security, and performance for your websites, applications, and workflows.

    Here’s why Linux shines:

    • Cost-effective: Most Linux licenses are free, open-source, reducing software costs.
    • Security: Linux is known for its robust security features and a large, active community that constantly identifies and patches vulnerabilities.
    • Customization: Linux offers unparalleled control. You can install only the software you need, optimizing performance and security.
    • Performance: Linux is typically lighter-weight than Windows Server, allowing you to dedicate more resources to your applications.

    With Zentyal, you get root access. This grants complete control over your server, allowing you to configure it exactly how you need. Zentyal also provides a user-friendly web interface for easier management.
