Linux and Windows are the leading operating systems used by companies to ensure smooth running of their server systems. If you are planning to utilize an OS and cannot quite decide between Windows and Linux, here are some key pointers that will help you make the right move. While Windows is the most popular OS for PCs and desktops, that should not influence your choice for server systems. That decision must be based on what you want you want from your website.

Linux is convenient to use as it is an open source system and less complex. Linux is also cheaper and best for startups that are operating on a limited budget. With Linux, you can get a flexible system and the ability to customize according to the needs of your business. You can also get amazing support from what is arguably the largest online support group on the internet.

Go for Windows web hosting if you are comfortable handling ASP.NET. It makes use of a different processing format but you can use it with various types of databases. When it comes to security aspects, both Windows and Linus OS platforms have some issues but Windows on account of their premium label is perceived as more secure than Linux. They also offer round the clock support, frequent updates and security patches to deal with possible glitches.

both offer the same basic function, their forms differ significantly. Consider the foundation of a home as an analogy: In the southern United States, concrete slabs are the preferred method, while in northern climates, a basement or crawl space or is common. Using a slab, concrete supports the weight of a home; using a basement, wood takes most of the load. Both are effective and achieve the same result, but with different methods.

The same is true with Linux and Windows. Here, the biggest difference is the core operating system (OS). Linux uses some form of the Linux kernel, which is typically free. Windows, meanwhile, comes with a licensing fee. You’ll find a host of open-source Linux applications available on the web; Windows hosting has fewer apps to choose from, but all come from licensed providers.

There are also many minor differences — for example, all Linux files are case sensitive, but Windows files are not. This means “Server.exe” and “server.exe” are different files in a Linux deployment, but they are the same for Windows users. In addition, Linux uses control panels like cPanel or WHM, while Windows uses Plesk.
