Web Hosting – Linux or Windows?
May 20, 2012
I’m not a geek. But, yes, I’m highly inquisitive and continuously look forward for better performance in lower budget 😛 . I personally come across many people who want to know whether it’s ok to go for Linux hosting. When I ask them the reason, they would usually say that windows is user friendly compared to Linux. While in desktop/laptop segment, Windows rules (and is perceived as user friendly, which may not be true, but this is no the right platform), Linux rules in Server Segment. Day by Day, Linux is eating away market share of windows. In recent years, we saw, according to IDC’s latest Worldwide Quarterly Server Tracker, factory revenue in the worldwide server market grew for Linux while it shrank for Windows.
Here’s a nice article which shows the current situation and portrays the growth of Linux as the OS for servers.
Let’s look into some of the advantages:
2. Cost effectiveness: Being an open source, Linux is usually cost effective.
3. Stability and performance: It has often been seen that when multiple processes run at one time, Linux handles such processes much better than Windows does. In other words, the stability of Windows seems to decrease more than the stability of Linux when multiple processes run simultaneously. Though it is not the only factor that determines the effectiveness of a server, it plays an important role.
I guess this much is enough, isn’t so?
