- Linux Hosting or Windows Hosting ?

If you don’t know which platform you need, then most likely you do not require Windows hosting and you should select one of our Linux web hosting plans. Your choice of web server platforms should be influenced by the use to which you intend to put it. The majority of web features including PHP, MySQL, POP3 etc run fine on both Windows server as well as Linux server platforms.

If you intend to develop your site using ASP, FrontPage, ASP.NET environment, Windows Streaming Media, Access, MS SQL Server, or any of the other Microsoft’s owned technologies then you should opt for Windows Semi-Dedicated hosting.

You would need to use Windows hosting is when you are using the specific NT applications. Microsoft FrontPage may be used on both the Linux and Windows platforms as we support the Microsoft FrontPage server extensions on both.

If you don’t need ASP.NET and MS SQL Server database support then Linux Semi-Dedicated Hosting would be perfect for you as it comes with the cPanel control panel which is the best control panel in web hosting industry.
