    Hello

    You should know which one best suits your needs ,both platform have different features and functionality some one likes windows hosting and some one is satisfy with linux hosting.Before choosing a hosting package you can compare this list with the capabilities of different OS, hosting plans, web hosts, and other considerations.For complete information I'm sharing a guide url https://www.webhostingdecisions.com/...hosting-guide/, may be this guide is beneficial for you.

    As per my opinion linux hosting is best option.

    Both have their own advantages. Linux offers more security compared to Windows servers whereas Windows provide a graphical interface for customers. You can use Windows server just as your desktop computer whereas you need to know Linux commands to use Unix servers.

    This is what we should want for any operating system: less attention on the operating system and more attention on higher-level features and services. It makes Linux and Windows, in this case, foundations for what users really care about. How well the operating system does its job and then gets out of the way, without calling too much attention to itself, should be the next decade of OS competition.

    hii

    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.To get More info about linux and window hosting visit https://www.webhostingdecisions.com/...hosting-guide/

    Linux is well-known for it stable. But some of the application Linux can't support, people will opt for Windows instead.

    It depends a lot, but many think as linux is free and more secure that it's the better choice. Not in all cases but i would use linux.

    It completely depends on for what purpose you use the VPS Hosting. Linux is Better choice for PHP based applications and Windows is better for ASP.net based applications. you can find many benefits about these two. If you are looking for Best Linux or Windos Hosting services, then Try Scopehosts hosting services.

    It used to be that choosing Windows or Linux to host your Web site made a big difference in the kind of functionality or services offered. On Friday, as this informative article on KnockOutHost.com suggests, the choice between Linux and Windows has become somewhat less stark.It's not that there aren't differences between the two. Security, programming languages, and more all differ between Linux and Windows. But it's a great coup for Linux to note that, if anything, the functionality available for Linux meets and often exceeds that provided by Windows, making one's choice less about operating systems and more about the Web host's other services:

    It is better to pick a Web host based on its features and services rather than on what operating system...is running on its Web servers, as the difference between the two is very little. However, if your Web site particularly requires a certain language due to the programmers you work with...it would be prudent to check for system compatibility before subscribing to a Web host.If you do not require such specific details, you should simply sit back and let the Web host handle these complicated technical details, and focus on your Web site itself. After all, the content is way more important than the programming language or the OS of the Web servers.Some will argue with this contention, suggesting that Linux is always better than Windows (or vice versa). It's simply not true--not anymore at least.

    I believe that this is a huge step forward for Linux. It has narrowed the functionality and ease-of-use gap and, if anything, has put some distance between itself and Windows as it steps into the lead.

    This is what we should want for any operating system: less attention on the operating system and more attention on higher-level features and services. It makes Linux and Windows, in this case, foundations for what users really care about. How well the operating system does its job and then gets out of the way, without calling too much attention to itself, should be the next decade of OS competition.
