What is Window Hosting?

In general, Linux hosting refers to shared hosting, the most popular hosting service in the industry. ... Windows hosting, on the other hand, uses Windows as the servers' operating system and offers Windows-specific technologies such as ASP, .NET, Microsoft Access and Microsoft SQL server (MSSQL).

Pros and Cons of Windows Hosting

All web hosts will allow you to get a simple website online. However, we recommend that you choose Linux hosting unless you have a specific reason to choose Windows. Why?

On the plus side, Windows:

◉ Is easy to use and requires less interaction with the command line
◉ Is arguably easier to manage and update than Linux, particularly if you're not experienced with hosting
◉ Supports the specialized scripting languages we've already covered
◉ Is just as stable as Linux if managed correctly by the host

But beware of Windows hosting if:

◉ The script you need is written in PHP; it's generally easier to use PHP on Linux boxes
◉ You don't know your way around WordPress. Support for WordPress on Windows is not easy to come by, and it may require custom configuration
◉ You want the cheapest shared hosting you can find. Windows is always more expensive, and a few extra bucks will quickly mount up over a monthly subscription
◉ You want to stay loyal to a particular hosting company. Not all hosts provide Windows hosting
◉ You need Apache, or a specific Apache module
◉ You want the flexibility to customize your server

When Windows Won't Work

If you need to use PHP, CGI, Perl or Python, Linux is a better choice because it's more of an all-rounder. And while WordPress can be installed on a Windows server, it's much wiser to go with Linux because there's far more support and documentation available to help you resolve any problems.

In terms of databases, check with your host to see what they offer. Linux tends to use MySQL, while Windows servers usually run MS SQL (and MS Access, to some degree).

If you know you'll need to SSH into your server, you will need to go with Linux hosting.
