    Lightbulb Windows or Linux? What to choose.

    Windows or Linux

    Hosting companies provide their services for different operating systems: either Windows or Linux. People are not sure which one to choose. Are there any particular sites that require only Windows hosting? Are there any restriction on Linux servers? Does it actually matter whether to use Linux or Windows hosting? In this article we'll try to shed some light on this point.

    To start with, we would like to state that there are no such notions as right or wrong decision in the world of hosting, there are only decisions made without sufficient information and prior analysis. Before making any decisions about your future webhost you should consider all options.

    Both Windows and Linux allow you to host your site on the net. However, there are some differences between them. Neither of them is better as they both have their own advantages. Most people are able to use a Linux webhosting plan without any problems. On the other hand, some people might need to run Windows-based web applications for their sites, which are not supported by Linux servers.

    You'll be able to use PHP, Ruby, Perl, Python, or CGI scripting on the Linux servers. If you're going to use ASP or ASP.NET, then choose a Windows Hosting account.


    Linux servers are more reliable, cheaper and more user-friendly than Windows hosting server. In case you need to run Windows site applications, a Windows webhosting plan would be the best thing to consider.


    Before choosing a proper type of hosting system, analyze the programs/software/applications you'll need to run for your site.

    Note: The type of hosting server you choose has nothing to do with the operating system you run on your PC.

    More people prefer to use Linux Hosting if they do not use MSSQL and ASP.net.
    Linux will be the best option for them .

    Post Re:

    I think Linux because Linux is an open source system and is therefore more cost-effective to operate and maintain than Windows, meaning that Linux hosting will cost you less than Windows hosting. Linux also has a reputation for stability and speed which means that Linux web servers will crash less often than Windows web servers and Linux runs most processes faster than Windows.

    I recommend you to use Linux servers to host your site or services.., It is more flexible and secure to work. You can install cpanel or any other hosting control panel to host and mange your server.
