    The number one reason is usually because you want to run packages that are yet not standard shared hosting. Another reason could be that you need a solution that is more scalable than the shared hosting solution. Also, perhaps you're not yet at the point where you need a dedicated solution, or collocated hosting is not an option yet

    I strongly believe that it will be also useful to recommend Hostplay.com and their Linux and Windows vps hosting deals.
    Their servers are fully-redundant, flexible and scalable, there is no downtime on them. Their technicians are skillful and qualified.

    exabeesg asked what is the difference between them and not where to buy them from The difference is the operating system. Judging by your question you probably don't need a VPS. If you tell us what you want to do then we can give you a better answer and advise. Basically, you can achieve almost the same with both operating systems but Windows is paid while Linux is free (most distributions).

    Hi exabeesg,
    Here are some of the differences between Linux and Windows VPS:

    Linux:
    -cheaper alternative, since Linux is open source, you don’t have to worry about costs of licensing fees, or having any kind of special software to run with it.
    -Works seamlessly with other open source programming languages, like PHP, as well as open source applications.
    -A lot of OS options such as CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu and others.

    Windows:
    -A Windows VPS environment is easier to manage if you don’t have a ton of technical or IT skills.. It’s really easy to use – any Windows user will feel comfortable.
    -If you’re developing in ASP or ASP.NET, the Windows environment is all about integration and support for these scripts.

    Linux VPS hosting has more features as compared to windows VPS hosting. Unless you run a website that needs a certain Windows applications, you should option for Linux VPS hosting. Basically, the type of operating system on your computer should not affect the type of virtual private server hosting you use.

    Linux VPS offers an environmental that promises high availability and extreme scalability. Both of these give you more up-time and better speeds, which will bring your site more visibility, meaning more visitors and higher revenue.

    Power, speed and reliability are three components hard-wired into hostwinds windows VPS hosting. KVM virtualization software is used on all of the hostwinds VPS nodes so our clients can run their windows applications remotely and with confidence.

    The major differentiating factor between web hosting packages is the operating system. Just like your desktop computer (probably running Microsoft Windows or an Apple Mac OS), web servers run an operating system. It’s the software that makes the computer go. There are two major types of OS in the web hosting world – Windows and UNIX. The major variant of UNIX is called Linux.

    For basic web sites it doesn’t really matter whether you choose Linux hosting or Windows hosting. Your pages will work just the same whichever you choose. But for more advanced users it pays to make the right choice.

    Which OS to choose comes down to what you want to do with your web site. For example if you want to install certain apps such as WordPress then you need to know which OS the app runs best on. Here are some examples:

    Apps that run better on Linux:
    WordPress blogging system
    Magento shopping cart
    Joomla website building software

    Apps that run better on Windows:
    Umbraco website building software
    nopCommerce shopping cart
    BlogEngine.net blogging system

    But – almost all the Linux apps can also run on Windows!

    Linux VPS hosting offers a secured hosting environment with features, flexibility and functions of a dedicated server.

    Windows VPS hosting is a virtual private server with Microsoft windows as an operating system. Windows VPS hosting is also referred as windows virtual hosting.

    Linux offers additional flexibility once it involves management panels. whereas Plesk may be used for each Windows and UNIX system VPS, solely cPanel is compatible with UNIX system. This alone makes UNIX system a well-liked alternative among business and developers.

    If your business mostly depends on Microsoft software package, a Windows VPS would be a match created in hosting heaven. Websites designed with the ASP.NET framework work need a Windows VPS for best performance.

    A VPS runs its own copy of an operating system, which allow customers unparalleled access to that operating system. Customers then can install almost any software that runs on that OS. There are two operating systems to choose from: Linux and Windows

    Linux is an open source, multi-user, multitask, server operating system as compared to Windows is a commercial, single-user, multitask, workstation operating system. Both can be deployed in many environments, but they excel at tasks they’re designed for and have miserable experience if abused.

    Linux hosting is more popular as compared to Windows hosting as it has a wide array of features and generally the designers prefer using Linux hosting. If you want to work with microsoft applications like ASP, ASP[.]NET, Frontpage, Visual Basic etc., then you have to opt for Windows hosting. Linux hosting includes the cPanel control panel wheres Windows hosting includes the Plesk control panel.

    The major resource for using Windows server is for your website to run Microsoft software like Access and MS SQL. Web developers for windows will be given full use of the programming ecosystems that's sponsored by Microsoft such as MS Index Server and VB Scripts.

    Windows has several benefits over Linux including:

    ASP or .NET scripts. With Windows you have the ability to run ASP or .NET scripts. These languages can be very effective and becoming more popular.
    Database Websites. If you’re using ASP, developers can design websites that are database driven with Microsoft SQL and Access.

    Windows VPS vs. Linux VPS: What is the Difference? VPS (Virtual Private Server) is a Virtual Machine (VM) that runs its own copy of an operating system housed in a physical computer. It is sold as a service by an internet hosting service provider.

    Linux is the cheaper option, as it’s free and open source, while Windows requires an operating system license. Therefore, most Linux server applications are also free.

    Linux offers more flexibility when it comes to control panels. While Plesk can be used for both Windows and Linux VPS, only cPanel is compatible with Linux. This alone makes Linux a popular choice among business and developers.

    Because of open source, Linux is notoriously tough on malware and viruses. Windows, on the other hand, will require you to install a plethora of security software to combat SQL attacks and script kiddies.

    ====================
    Windows VPS hosting option is the easy and comfortable interface. For VPS novices, Windows will be helpful, especially if you are familiar with Windows products.

    If your business largely depends on Microsoft software, a Windows VPS would be a match made in hosting heaven. Websites built with the ASP.NET framework work require a Windows VPS for optimal performance.

    Lastly, remote desktop access is an advantage Windows has over Linux. You can direct access from anywhere to your VPS server from your interface. This makes server management simpler and easier than Linux, which requires a text-based Secure Shell (SSH) protocol.
