Web Servers – Shared, Dedicated, Linux, Windows

The type of hosting you need depends on what kind of development language or database you might use with your website. Your home operating system will not affect which hosting account you choose.

What is the difference between Dedicated and Shared hosting?

In Shared servers, your site shares resources (CPU, memory, storage) with other hosting accounts. It is the most economical means of hosting websites, and also comes with valuable add-ons such as cPanel, SPAM protection, SEO tools, and full server administration.

In Dedicated hosting (aka managed plans) you get full control over an entire server. You can customize the disk, memory, and network configurations to your exact needs.

What is the difference between Linux and Windows hosting?

Linux and Windows are two different types of operating systems. Linux is the most popular operating system for web servers. Since Linux-based hosting is more popular, it has more of the features web designers expect. So unless you have websites which need specific Windows applications, Linux is the preferred choice.

Linux is widely considered to be the best operating system for web servers. Characteristically reliable, stable and efficient, Linux is proven in the most demanding environments of web and mail servers. If you plan to incorporate work that uses PHP, Perl or MySQL languages, Linux is the solution you should choose.
