Whats Better Linux Or Windows?

By Logan Oulman

Which web hosting platform does she or he wish her or his server to be located on proves to be among the most complicated choices that any novice will have to make. Windows and Linux web servers are two of the most popular web servers to choose from.

FTP commands and control panel – Windows and Linux servers do well with these, but because some of the programs are designed for a specific server, some of the commands can be different between the different operating systems. That’s the reason why occasionally you will get error messages running some of the FTP commands on your server.

- Support, when it comes to support Windows wins hands down, Linux can be slightly harder to find support for in regards to some of its technology. Linux is set up to run with particular architectures whereas Windows is much more adept at working with a generic set of specifications.

-Security and reliability- Windows is a platform that is used extensively in home computing uses and some of the security features that come with it are simply not as technologically advanced as those that are offered with the Linux platform which is more commonly used by system engineers and developers. It is much more likely that you will have a successful attack against you when using Windows than Linux if no other reason than the fact that there are a much larger number of Windows based attacks than Linux ones.

* Performance – Linux has been reported to be of high performance mainly due to the way Linux servers are packaged. With Linux things are usually designed to fulfill specific tasks. Windows is usually guilty of using this package that seems to think that all users have the same requirements.

* Conversion – possessing a Linux web server today is alright, in particular if you plan to switch over your Operating System in the near future, since your conversion will prove to be simple and smooth in getting your website changed over to Windows hosting from Linux hosting. On the contrary, it is indeed a nightmare for anyone who wished to convert their website from Windows hosting to Linux hosting.
