    Linux vs Windows hosting

    I am here to give you a brief comparison between Linux and windows web hosting. Windows cost you more while Linux is open free platform to go with. Windows allows product integration which is hardly possible in case of Linux operating system. Moreover windows is more suitable for script based website while Linux is considered best for those sites which use technologies like cold fusion, MYSQL, apache etc. You can also share your point to give a better comparison between two.

    The operating systems have converged in Web hosting, making either a good choice and pushing the conversation as to "which is best" to the applications they enable.

    There are two kinds of web host - linux and windows hosting. Both have their own pros and cons and your choice to select one of them is determined by your specifications. If your web page is fixed with no unique specifications, you can opt for either one of them and get your web page up and operating without any problems.

    I can't believe somebody have audacity to type this kind of blunder on a hosting forum! If I was the mod, I would have banned the user from posting anything more!
