I decided to have a web site (finally ) and a good frind told me that I should look for a host company with Linux servers (I dont know why though) , he just said will be better thna windows, anyway I wanted always to have my own blog or something so will be graet if I can find a host and also can install one of those free php scripts ?
I saw a site http://properplace.org but I am not sure.
Also do I need to have a lot of traffic available to run a blog on my site?
any suggestion will be appreciated.

Hello,

If you are not going to use asp scripts on your web site, linux servers can be consideres as more reliable and fast with php scripts that work with mysql databases. You may install a free blog php script on your web site.

Make sure your hosting plan includes a mysql database. You will also need at least 5 GB bandwidth per month for a blogger web site.

Look for a host that has Fantastico, its got 4 different blogs that you can auto-install. Word-Press seems to be the most popular.

Its got tons of other stuff to:

5GB is a LOT bandwidth for an average blog.
Most of the ISP's will install the script for you, just asked them.

I would recommend having a host that has Fantastico installed. You get over 50+ different types of scripts that aren`t initially stored on your space, so you don`t have to worry about any storage problems.Installing scripts take small storage sizes and installtions are done at the click of a mouse so you don`t have to waste time uploading,configuring,debugging problems and things like that. Good Luck ;)

Installatron is another auto installer you can look for in a host. It has many popular scripts that can be installed quickly. You can see all the programs that Installatron has on its site http://www.installatron.com/

I would also suggest a host that has Fantastico. It has prebuilt BLOG software that you can easily just press to install feature. Then you'll be able to host your own blogs. Good Luck!

I agree with many users. Fantastico is the best solution for preconfigured script install. You only need to click a few buttons and you have a ready to run website for blogs.

Also, check and see what kinds of scripts you are running and check for compatibility windows vs linux.

I use Linux across the board and think overall they are more stable machines
