    No .ASP

    If you plan to use Active Server Pages or .ASP for your website, you will not be able to use this language on a Unix server. Since this scripting language is gaining in popularity, this can be a tremendous downside if you select a Unix based host.

    No Visual Basic

    Like .ASP, Visual Basic is not supported on Unix based hosting, so again, if you plan to use this, or any Windows based applications, a Unix host will not be an alternative for you.

    Now that you are well versed in the ups and downs of Unix hosting, let’s put everything together into what you will need to consider before selecting a Unix based hosting package

    Stability:

    UNIX systems (we actually use Linux but for comparison purposes they are identical) are hands-down the winner in this category. There are many factors here but to name just a couple big ones: in our experience UNIX handles high server loads better than Windows and UNIX machines seldom require reboots while Windows is constantly needing them. Servers running on UNIX enjoy extremely high up-time and high availability/reliability.

    Performance:

    While there is some debate about which operating system performs better, in our experience both perform comparably in low-stress conditions however UNIX servers under high load (which is what is important) are superior to Windows.

    Scalability:

    Web sites usually change over time. They start off small and grow as the needs of the person or organization running them grow. While both platforms can often adapt to your growing needs, Windows hosting is more easily made compatible with UNIX-based programming features like PHP and MySQL. UNIX-based web software is not always 100% compatible with Microsoft technologies like .NET and VB development. Therefore if you wish to use these, you should choose Windows web hosting.

    Compatibility:

    Web sites designed and programmed to be served under a UNIX-based web server can easily be hosted on a Windows server, whereas the reverse is not always true. This makes programming for UNIX the better choice.

    Price:

    Servers hosting your web site require operating systems and licenses just like everyone else. Windows 2003 and other related applications like SQL Server each cost a significant amount of money; on the other hand, Linux is a free operating system to download, install and operate. Windows hosting results in being a more expensive platform.

    Unix server hosting providers lease hosting services for a fee which is typically paid on a monthly basis. Fees or subscriptions range in price depending on the server provider and what they have to offer. Many server providers breakdown the features, benefits, and support they supply into groups calling it plans or packages. Power, which comes in the form of bandwidth and memory, differs within plans and packages.
    There are many advantages to using UNIX based server. They are normally the choice for many business. here some advantages,

    UNIX-based hosting is more stable, performs faster and more compatible than Windows-based hosting. You only need Windows hosting if you are going to developing in .NET or Visual Basic, or some other application that limits your choices.

    Advantages. Full multitasking with protected memory. Multiple users can run multiple programs each at the same time without interfering with each other or crashing the system. Very efficient virtual memory, so many programs can run with a modest amount of physical memory.
