What is commonly referred to as Apache is actually an HTTP web server which operates alongside contemporary operating systems including UNIX, Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, Novell NetWare, and Windows operating systems based on the Windows NT kernel. It is open-source software and first saw the light of day in the mid-1990s. It was instrumental in the development of what is today the Internet.
According to the Apache Software Foundation, which maintains the Apache project, "The goal of this project is to provide a secure, efficient and extensible server that provides HTTP services in sync with the current HTTP standards." Because it is open-source, that means there are thousands of programmers working to improve it.
Apache serves considerably more than half of the web sites on the Internet and has been the most popular web server almost since its inception. It offers a high degree of control to those who use it. In addition, it is extremely flexible, has its own search capability, and provides password authentication as well as digital certificate authentication. In addition to the FTP protocol, it boasts a number of pre-compiled modules that broaden its ability to provide complete support for the web programmer. Languages like Perl, Python, PHP, MySQL, and Java are among these languages.
As programmers, we are most comfortable in an environment we believe allows us to respond to our client's needs. That is our focus, and an Apache web server lets us do that most effectively. We know you will agree once your web site is up and running. The informative logs which are part of the Apache environment provide an enhanced ability to keep on top of what is going on with regard to security and dependability.
Since we work with a Linux operating system, Apache makes a particularly good choice as far as a web server is concerned. Using Linux and Apache provides the best way to respond, immediately, to any security or programming issues that might arise. We can get to the source of the problem and take care of it quickly. That allows us to guarantee the best service possible. Because we have the greatest degree of control possible, you do, too. That is why we chose Apache.
