    Linux VPS VS Window VPS

    You must have noticed the majority of the hosting plans are equipped with the options of Windows and Linux servers. Both in their respective hosting domains are powerful allowing you to build strong websites by implementing any of the technologies. As a user, you need must choose the server that best suits the dependency for building your website.

    Considering Linux, it is free and open-source software based on Unix. It is immensely popular having a large community of developers who work on these applications to fix the security patches along with updates. Besides, Linux is highly stable as it allows you to work without any hindrance. It barely requires any kind of rebooting and is available across various distributions such as Ubuntu, CentOS, RedHat and Fedora. In case you are looking to build your website using MySQL, PHP, Perl or Python, then you should definitely go for Linux-based servers.

    In case of an event where your website is building by the means of MSSQL, MS ACCESS then you should look for Windows servers, as the above-mentioned technologies are not supported by Linux.
    Using Microsoft technologies, it is not possible for you to migrate from Windows to Linux. Though the reverse is true and this doesn't affect the performance of your website. Windows is an expensive option as compared to Linux and all the Microsoft products have a license fee.

    You need to have a clear understanding that operating doesn't really matter and all it depends on the necessities of your websites.

    he most obvious difference between the two is the cost. Linux is an open source OS and is free to use, whereas Windows is a commercial operating system. Therefore, both usage type and price of Windows and Linux VPS servers are very different
