Which Web Hosting Plan is Right for You?

There are two web hosting operating systems: Linux and Windows. Both support programming or scripting languages that are specifically designed to work within their systems. For example, Linux supports PHP programming, while Windows supports Windows or ColdFusion.

Linux Web Hosting and Windows Web Hosting also support a number of the same languages including the life-blood coding language of almost every single website: HTML (hypertext markup language), CSS (cascading style sheets), and JavaScript. If your website is going to just be produced using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, then either web hosting operating system one will work fine.

Some applications do require the use of a specific operating system, so if you have a certain type of program in mind that you want to use to create your website, then check with the application's vendor for the appropriate operating system. For example, WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems used for creating websites and blogs. It is coded in PHP and therefore, it is recommend that it be installed under a Linux-based hosting plan.
