    There are many web hosting companies who provides Linux VPS Hosting and Windows based too. They offer many packages with various plans that can just attract as per your budget. There are differences between Linux and Windows but it all depends on the user, how simple he wants. Windows have many easy-to-use factors but with some cost.

    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..............

    Windows VPS is the hosting which is the expensive one. It has a lot of smart features. It is fast and secure. It supports ASP and asp.net hosting. It provides the best support for Microsoft SQL and access. It has one of the best graphical user interfaces. It provides the best facilities and the web hosting provider also makes sure to give their user the best piece of their services. The user is also granted access to the Windows VPS from anywhere we like to. It is not very reliable but the offers it has to entertain its users with are simply remarkable.

    Linux VPS is preferred greatly because it is very much economical and comes under the title of cheap windows hosting. It is very much reliable because unlike the Windows VPS it does not come with risks of system crash down or slows down. One can completely rely on its steady working. It is an open source program which is one of the major reasons of it being cheap. Some of its applications are also available completely free. Some very advanced features can only be used or run with the help of Linux plus it also offers SSH access.

    Linux VPS web hosting is the best option for business owners who want direct control over their website.
    For my website I choose linux hosting. And i got Linux VPS hosting service from 9cubehosting.com They provide good customer service and support.

    Different OS means that they both will have different performance. From my experience, both are a good solution for web hosting, but I think Linux's performance is high when compared to Windows. Also, the price is different for them.

    Personally i'll suggest you to go with Linux VPS. Reason is the open source apps which are more secure in linux environment while sql attacks/script kiddies can cause more damages to windows server than linux. And performance wise you'll find linux much better in comparison.

    If you want to take more technical opinion on this one then head over to serverfault.com and you'll get the pros and cons of both these systems.

    I can assure you that the application that you need to use for the IM work (like wordpress or list hosting etc) will work with both linux and windows server. So there is no cons that way.

    There are 2 sort of running systems, Windows and Linux and holding on both the os is different. Linux organizing is an open source os that offers software availability to anybody as well as likewise permits them to use and also modify completely free.

    Whereas, Windows hosting operate on Windows operating system created by Microsoft. The most noticeable distinction in between both is price. Since Windows is an industrial system which is owned by Microsoft, and also Linux is an open resource type which calls for no licensing expense, Windows is costly than Linux.

    Windows licensing charges is considering and their VPS web servers are subjected to specialized tasks which feature higher rate. If you have a minimal spending plan, Linux VPS web server is the ideal selection.

    As a whole likewise, Linux VPS web server is more affordable that Windows VPS server with very same specifications. Windows VPS web server and also Linux VPS server use different control board. cPanel works efficiently on Linux VPS, whereas this doesn't work on Windows VPS. Webhosting Manager or WHM is also readily available on Linux server.

    Right off the bat, the most obvious difference between the two is the cost. Linux is an open source OS and is free to use, whereas Windows is a commercial operating system. ... Also, Windows VPS servers can be subjected to more specialized tasks and therefore they come with a higher price tag.

    Linux hosting is compatible with PHP and MySQL, which supports scripts such as WordPress, Zen Cart, and phpBB. Windows hosting, on the other hand, uses Windows as the servers' operating system and offers Windows-specific technologies such as ASP, . NET, Microsoft Access and Microsoft SQL server (MSSQL).
