When it comes to web hosting, you may often be faced with a choice between Windows or Linux hosting.

This can be a hard decision, especially if you are unsure on the key differences between each.

Linux hosting is usually cheaper is the most common for most websites.

On the other hand, Windows hosting offers a few additional features, such as supporting Microsoft SQL Server (MSSQL). As a result of Windows needing a paid license, Windows hosting is almost always more expensive than Linux hosting.


A common question asked by many is ‘If I’ve got a Windows computer at home, do I need Windows hosting?

The answer to this is no, it makes absolutely no difference, since it isn’t related to your computer. You can choose either.
