Web Hosting Platform Face-Off: Windows, UNIX, and Linux

Web server software, like any other application, must reside on top of an operating system in order to function. A key choice facing organizations today is which operating system to choose for public and internal Web servers. In most cases, this decision will come down to a choice between UNIX, Windows NT/2000, or Linux, although there are Macintosh and NetWare-based Web servers available.

What is the difference between linux hosting and windows hosting?

Question by giridharanbtech: What is the difference between linux hosting and windows hosting?
I'm going to host a website. what is the difference between these both hosting? please explain it clearly. I'm going to use php in my site. which one is best for that?

Best answer:

Answer by just "JR"
Both will offer Php, if installed.
Linux hosting is the most common (75% of the market). It is cheaper, since it uses Open Source languages. It is faster (since Unix is faster than windows). It is relatively free of bugs, as bugs are, usually, corrected within days.
Window based systems are less common (25% of servers). It is expensive, since it uses closed sources (Microsoft) for which you have to pay, repay and re-re-pay endless licence fees. It has bugs that have never been addressed (MS prefers to issue a new system than correcting mistakes)

There is no choice, really!
Users of Window based servers, ASP, JSP, .net have more money than brain.

UNION, KY (PRWEB) August 23, 2006

ArielHost LLC (, a provider of web hosting, web site design, and merchant services, announced today it has introduced Windows web hosting alongside its existing FreeBSD-based packages.

The introduction of Windows hosting allows ArielHost to better serve developers and merchants running specialized applications that require Windows Server 2003, as opposed to a BSD or Linux platforms.

“While we are still fully committed to providing FreeBSD based hosting, we recognize that many clients are seeking Microsoft technologies such as .NET and Microsoft SQL Server to power their online presence,” said Ariel Benzakein, ArielHost Chief Operating Officer. “We're bringing the same high level of quality we offer with our Unix hosting services to those customers that require Windows based hosting."

The new Windows plans, hosted on 2.4 GHz Dual Xeon-powered servers with 2 GB of RAM, start at $ 14/monthly for 200MB of disk space and 1GB of monthly traffic. Unlimited email accounts, sub-domains, mySQL databases, and FTP accounts are also included.

ArielHost will offer its specialized merchant services to its Windows hosting customers, which include Voice over Internet Protocol telephony, ScanAlert's PCI Compliance scanning at no additional charge, and merchant accounts through Applied Merchant Systems.

“It’s clear that even with the introduction of Windows hosting, we are completely focused on offering an enriched, merchant-centric web hosting environment for our customers,” said Benzakein.

(Explore) I hope you have enjoyed our trip, east to west, on Main Street, Mesa. It began as the Apache Trail near the Superstition Mountains and Apache Junction, and now we end towards the western edge of Mesa, a couple of miles away from Arizona State University. The parking lot for my office in the Business School is in fact right off of this road.

I did these on an early Sunday morning so all the parking lots were empty. Only once did I get out of the car (when I walked through downtown Mesa); these are all out-the-window shots. Being on an empty road early Sunday morning also allows you to make the crazy stops and turnarounds you need to do when you drive by a shot and decide that you *must* have it! Finally, it has only taken me a year to realize that dawn and dusk are best for shots in Phoenix, as anytime else the sun is too harsh and just drowns everything out. At least at the edges of the day the sunlight has a bit of softness to it. (By the way--it was 110F here yesterday.)
