    Linux or Windows Web Hosting?


    After selecting a reliable hosting for your web site you would possibly feel you're ready however wait, the work isn't over, there's more to it.

    When you select a Web Hosting provider then you would like to decide which operating software system would run on your server. This can be an important call because the performance of your server eventually depends upon the operating system you select.

    There are numerous operating systems accessible that you can select from but most of the Web Hosting service providers give Linux and Windows. These two are the most popular operating systems for servers.

    Windows

    Windows is also a very good operating system. It's very popular owing to its support quality. Although Windows is a little costlier than Linux, it's still quite popular owing to its easy use and operability.

    Linux

    Linux is one the most popular operating systems, thanks to it being cheap to install and use, which is because of its open source nature and no licensing fees.

    Linux and Windows are the two most ordinarily used OSís and are offered by most of the hosting providers.

    Another issue that differentiates both OSís is the access to the server. Linux and Windows each provide FTP access to the files however solely Linux offers Telnet or SSD access further. Many users like Windows owing to its FrontPage application further that isn't simply accessible on Linux.

    Security

    A major issue that influences users to decide on a selected OS is that of security. Many assume Linux to be safer however it's not true. Linux like Windows is vulnerable too. The safety of any server depends upon the server administration more than the OS.

    Thus, even if you discover numerous variations between the OSís they eventually perform an equivalent role and you ought to choose what suits your needs.

    Could not really understand the reason for writing the original post other than the big advertisement that is sticking at the end of it.

    Linux or Windows Web Hosting


    Window Hosting is good if application in ASP.Net or .Net technology only and in cost more than Linux hosting otherwise
    Select Linux Hosting account if you are using PHP, Ruby, Perl, Python, or CGI scripting and cheaper than window in cost

    When it comes to Web hosting, Linux has, for some time, been widely considered the best OS for Web servers. It's typically found to be the most reliable, stable and efficient system and, as such, it's commonly used for the demanding environment of Web and mail servers. If you use PHP, Perl or MySQL, Linux is the way forward. If apps are Microsoft-specific, then Windows is what you need.
