What is the difference between Windows and Linux Hosting?

The short answer is if you don’t know then Linux is probably for you. If you have designed a basic site with HTML even if you are using Microsoft Frontpage you will find Linux hosting offers the best features for you even if you use Windows in your home or office.
If you want to create a dynamic site using a server side scripting language and perhaps a database then you will have to choose more carefully:

  • If you prefer to use PHP or PERL with a MySQL database then Linux hosting is for you. – or maybe Java hosting if you need Java Applications.
  • If you prefer to use ASP, ASP.NET or Cold Fusion with Microsoft Access, Microsoft SQL Server or MySQL database then Windows hosting is for you.
