The advantages of Windows Web Hosting :
- it's more expensive
- it require more resources
- it's slower than linux
- it require to reboot after an update

:lol:

If you don't need to run some asp scripts, there is no reason to use a Windows Hosting. :)

VirtuBox really hit the nail on the head with this one. Linux is going to be your best friend unless you have a specific need for Windows.

I just want to agree with everyone else here. If you can avoid using Windows in any environment I would highly suggest it. Linux was built as a low overhead OS, the exact opposite of anything Microsoft.

On the vps side Windows is more familiar with its desktop and gui. For either situation Windows supports asp.net, mvc, Visual Basic, C# which Linux does not; but it also supports php. It supports mssql which Linux does not; but it also supports mysql. Thus Windows is more versatile. The stuff about Linux being more secure or faster or more stable is nonsense.

However, if you are using php and mysql go with Linux. Its more popular for basic web hosting and hence there is more design and development assistance available for that platform. But its no accident that over 85% of on-premise servers are Windows servers

I don't see any advantages except its support of ASP.NET.

Hi,

If you want to host games like rsps then windows Hosting is recommended.

Also, if you want to run ASP.NET or java files, you can use windows, else go with Linux. Its always best option.
