Many people are confused on choosing the right hosting platform. The decision to make is between LINUX and Windows hosting. The conclusion is usually derived from the requirement. Most Windows hosting provider will offer you support for scripting language like ASP whereas most LINUX hosting providers will offer you support in scripting language like PHP. If you do not want any scripting language, you can use any of the hosting platforms. Most people however, prefer LINUX due to its extensive features and worldwide popularity. Another reason for its popularity is that it is cheaper as compared to Windows hosting as the servers used in LINUX are free and the ones used in Windows are paid and need to be licensed.
