Let us help you to come to a conclusion between Linux or windows web hosting, which one to purchase.

Choosing between Linux or Windows servers is a common dilemma that our customers face. We get asked to recommend one quite often. Hence we’ve put together this small guide to help you decide between what the right option for you is. In a nutshell choosing between Linux and Windows server OS should be based on what your current/planned website needs. If you want/need ASP, DOT NET, MS-SQL, VB, MS-Access, etc., then you certainly need a Microsoft™ OS i.e. Windows Server, because these are windows specific technologies. You need the web server to execute these files and therefore you require a Windows-based server and hosting package for smooth operation. Although there are complicated workarounds to force these technologies to work on Linux as well.

Linux is the preferred option for most users, especially novices, as creating websites, including blogs or shopping carts is more straightforward with majority of free and commercial web software being Unix based (same as Linux). This makes it the more popular choice and you’ll easily find tutorials for Linux how-to’s. Linux also has better support for specific technologies like MySQL, PHP, Perl, Python, etc. Ultimately however, creating, designing, publishing and managing your website will be done via our intuitive user interface that allows you to easily install apps with a 1-click interface.
