Windows or Linux web hosting – which one to choose ?

The choice between Windows or Linux shared and reseller hosting India has always been a very complicated decision for potential customers who are seeking web hosting India services. In terms of pricing, Microsoft develops and owns its Windows operating system; therefore hosting a website on the Windows platform is more costly. On the other hand, Linux is an open-source operating system. In other words, in the majority of cases, Linux is a free operating system; reducing the costs of utilizing this platform. This price difference is relatively seen with dedicated servers India offering while for shared or reseller hosting, pricing are almost the same. Contrary to popular belief, it is important to clarify the fact that even if a customer is running a Windows operating system on his computer, he is still eligible to use Linux as a hosting platform.

It is imperative to understand that the most important factor in making a choice between both platforms is to know what functions a customer requires from his web hosting service. If a customer is seeking Microsoft’s proprietary features such as ASP, ASP.NET, Microsoft Access and Microsoft SQL Server then the Windows platform is an obvious choice.

In terms of stability, security and performance, both platforms are relatively equal. For this reason, it is important to rely mostly on the web hosting company’s server reliability. At YRHost, we offer state-of-the-art web hosting servers co-located in a reliable and secure data center.
