CHOOSING LINUX or WINDOWS HOSTING (FAQ)

"Which platform, Linux or Windows should I host my website on?" or "When is Linux Hosting the best choice?". If you have asked or wondered about these or similar questions. You are not alone!

We provide below our responses to most common questions concerning choosing between Linux and Windows hosting. Hopefully it will help you decide on which of the two platforms is best for you.

  • My laptop and office computers runs Windows, shouldn't I be going for Windows hosting as well?

    Not really! One of the biggest misconceptions is that your website or web applications must be hosted on Windows servers if your personal or corporate computers run on the Windows operating system. This is not true! Your websites can be hosted on either Linux or Windows servers, irrespective of the operating system your local systems are running on.

  • I developed my website with a windows-based computer. Would a linux hosting still be appropriate for me?

    Yes! A linux plan would be in order for you, irrespective of the operating system of the computer used in developing the website, as long as Microsoft-specific technologies are not used on the website.

  • I need to Use FrontPage Extension. Shouldn't I choose Windows?

    Not necessarily! Frontpage Extension is widely used and is typically provided on both Linux and Windows servers. You can choose either plaforms and run your Frontpage Extension-based websites, without issues.

  • Linux or Windows Hosting - which should I choose?

    Deciding which platform is right for you is often a difficult decision. We offer a choice between Windows and Linux hosting because we want to meet the needs of all our customers. A good rule of thumb is to opt for Linux hosting, except where your website or web application requires Microsoft-specific technologies, such as ASP, ASP.Net, MSSQL Server or MS Access databases.

    Microsoft Windows is a widely used desktop operating system, but Linux is by far the most widely used on the Internet. In fact, an overwhelming majority of websites on the Internet; those you may have been browsing, including ours (this website) run on Linux.



  • When is Linux the best choice?

    If you don't need any of the Microsoft technologies to run your website or if you don't even know what they are, then it's better you stick with Linux.


  • When is Windows the best choice?

    If you used or are going to be using any of the Microsoft-specific techonologies, such as ASP, ASP.Net, MSSQL Server or MS Access, on your website, then you should go for Windows hosting.
