Shared Hosting | Linux and Windows

In order to decide whether to go for Linux or Microsoft hosting you will have to identify what your website requirements are.

If you need to support Microsoft products such as, ASP, MS Access, Microsoft SQL Server or VBScript, then Windows hosting would be better.

Linux is generally a more popular option because of its affordability, stability, and many features. Linux supports PHP, Perl, MySQL, PostgreSQL, CGI Scripts with access via a control panel.

Both Linux and Windows servers are reliable, stable, and secure. Generally, however, more viruses are written to attack Windows servers than Linux servers. If you need to host on a Windows Server ensure that your web hosting company continually upgrades their Windows and Linux servers with the latest fixes and patches available.
