It is better to pick a Web host based on its features and services rather than on what operating system...as the difference between Windows and Linux is much smaller these days. However, if your Web site in particular requires a certain language due to the programmers you work with...it would be prudent to check for system compatibility before subscribing to a Windows or Linux Web hosting plan.
If your website does not require specifc programming languages then Linux hosting is best as it is less expesnsive than Windows hosting. Also you do not need a Windows based hosting plan just becsue you have a Windows computer at your office or home. Owning a Mac or Windows PC at your location does not govern the hosting package you should choose. Both Windows and Linux hosting plas come with easy to use web based FTP upload tools as well as being compatible with your local ftp applications.
| Linux Hosting
Linux is considered to be the popular operating system for web hosting servers.
If your website uses PHP, Perl or MySQL or is a simple HTML static website then Linux is the hosting solution you should choose. Linux is also ideal for PHP applications such as Joomla, Sugar CRM, WordPress and many other PHP web based software applications.
| Microsoft Hosting
Windows should be your choice of web hosting if your website uses ASP.NET (Active Server Pages), COldFusion, Access, MS SQL or other Microsoft applications. Our Windows hosting also offers many of Linux's native programming languages as well such as MySQL, PHP, Perl and CGI. If you are still not sure what technology to choose your safest bet is Windows as it incorporates all the Windows technologies as well as offers most Linux technologies as well.
