At the time of managing the hosting, as with everything, we can choose the platform to work with. We will see the difference between two of the main ones, such as Windows and Linux, based on your need.

Starting with Linux, this is optimal due to its reliability and effectiveness. If what you want is to program with Python, PHP or Pert, if you are going to work with WordPress or Joomla or want MySQL databases, the most successful is this platform. Linux is also very good if you need to work with on-line sales and forms for clients. Another benefit is that the license for the integration of applications to our website, in Linux, is public, Windows, on the other hand, has almost all of its payment licenses.

Let's see now Windows , its great handicap is the drag & drop technology used through Net, SharePoint and Framework, it is a very comfortable and practical way of working. Also if you decide to create your website with FrontPage it is clear that you must use Windows. Another advantage is the databases, for this platform they are much more functional at the same time as simple to be able to work with them, the ideal is to work with asp or SQL.

It should be said, despite this followed by differences, if we rely on the speed of both and the security that can guarantee us, they would be in a technical tie, both generate the same reliability and allow us to work in an agile manner.

Finally, there are solutions for both platforms, that we must keep in mind because, we can work on one or the other but users can visit us from any of the two and the web has to be prepared for all types of platforms.

What about you? What is better for your hosting? Any thoughts?

Hello,
I do not agree about the fact that Windows provide the same reliability, speed and security than linux.
Here few reasons :
- Windows require more resources and Windows Servers license are pretty expensive (from $20/mo or $500 one time)
- It always need to reboot to apply new updates
- IIS server do not provide the same performance than Apache or Nginx
- There were several security breach in Windows and some of them impacted thousands of users (like Wannacry attack last year)
