When we hire a web hosting plan must choose which operating system to work. So there are two types of accommodation: Linux hosting and Windows hosting.
First of all we must remember that you do not need to use Linux on your PC or on your network to use a Linux hosting. We are talking about the operating system will be used on the server. In this case your site will be hosted on a server using the Linux operating system.
Linux is a open source or free software and has many applications open source and free. Linux is one of the most popular operating systems on the Internet, especially because it is cheaper to install and maintain. This makes web hosting companies to offer Linux hosting at a price slightly cheaper than Windows.
The Linux hosting is best if we will use technologies such as PHP, Perl, mySql and C as this type of language is optimized for Linux.
Linux has a reputation of being more stable and faster, which means we will have fewer problems with reliability and experience setbacks with the server. On the other hand Linux is not fully compatible with Microsoft technologies, so if you’re using ASP, Access, MS SQL or VB then you better choose a Windows hosting.
