    That's why i always recommend to people to choose windows vps hosting
    like per mention before, each os do have own benefit and advantage. if you are using windows apps and you may go for windows meanwhile if you are using linux thn you may go for linux. it is no point for you to buy window os for using linux apps

    In my opinion Linux web hosting is very economical as Linux is a free operating system.

    web hosting

    Web hosting is a service that allows organizations and individuals to post a website or web page on to the Internet. A web host, or web hosting service provider, is a business that provides the technologies and services needed for the website or webpage to be viewed in the Internet. Websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called servers.

    Linux supports a wide range of software, applications, languages, and databases such as PHP, Perl, PostGre, MySQL, PostgreSQL and many others making it very scalable. On the downside, Linux is not fully compatible with some Microsoft technologies so if you are using Access, ASP, MS SQL, or VB development tools then Windows would be a better bet.
    Windows Hosting:
    The main "advantage" or distinction of Windows servers is that they can run Microsoft software such as Access and MS SQL databases. Windows servers also offer web developers the use of Microsoft's programming environments such as Active Server Pages (ASP), Visual Basic Scripts, MS Index Server.
    Users can develop web site using the familiar interface of Microsoft tools such as, Visual Interdev, and Microsoft Access. With ASP users can develop a database-driven web site using Microsoft Access and Microsoft SQL as the database
    very well explained. Thanks

    Web hosting in either Linux of Windows generally look at what type of sites or CMS that you intend to do so you need to actually know what type of sites or CMS that you plan to use before deciding on the OS of the server.

    One of the biggest differences between the Linux and Windows servers is security. Linux is built much more secure than Windows servers. From the offset, the root level is not available to most programs without permission.

    Also, it is much easier to control URL structure in Linux which is important for search engine rankings.

    Linux and Windows are two different types of operating systems. Linux is the most popular operating system for web servers. Since Linux-based hosting is more popular, it has more of the features web designers expect. So unless you have websites which need specific Windows applications, Linux is the preferred choice.

    Linux Hosting or windows hosting is chosen based on the website requirement that you will be hosting . If you want to host any windows based applications like then go for windows hosting.
