What is the difference between Windows and UNIX / Linux hosting?While most providers offer Web hosting based on UNIX related platforms (such as Linux or FreeBSD), others offer Windows hosting based on Microsoft’s Windows operating system. Depending on what technologies, languages, or gadgets you wish to use, you will choose one or the other.Windows-based hosts generally have patchy support for technologies such as Perl, PHP, and MySQL, if at all. However, if you require ASP, ASP.NET, or Microsoft SQL Server, Windows will be your operating system of choice.On the whole, most providers offer UNIX based hosting, and most consumers (and techies) go this route. UNIX based hosting tends to be more reliable, is cheaper, and offers a wider range of non-proprietary features. However, if you require Microsoft’s propriety features, a Windows based host is the way to go.Check out our reviews of some Windows based hosts.User commentsComment on this page
