I'm a beginner programmer and i know PHP, HTML, CSS, MySql, jQuery, BootStrap and have little knowledge on Web hosting. I'm trying to develop a website which will run as an OS(i.e. run Linux from the server) inside the browser. And whenever a user signs up, they are allotted with a username and password through which they can access their system(my website, their account). So, what are the things i should learn more or how can i implement it? Any help is appreciable.

"Website which will act as an OS"?
Can you share why exactly you want to do that?

Actually, it's not website which acts as an OS. I want to host Linux from server. It's more like a remote desktop connection except you don't own a system anywhere.

Sounds like you're trying to invent something that's been invented a handful of times already in a variety of manners:

Virtual Machines (yes, most have web based clients):
http://www.vmware.com/[^]
https://www.virtualbox.org/[^]


Containers:
https://www.docker.com/[^] (if I remember correctly, this has an example that actually runs Linux within one of their containers from their website)
http://kubernetes.io/[^]

If one of those meets what you'd like to do, find out more about how it works.
