Windows Vs Linux Hosting ..?

Sep 28, 2009

a speaker at a meet-up stated that the only reason Linux is a more popular server platform is that kids starting hosting companies do not need to pay for the license...

whereas college educated techies prefer the windows platform for their servers..

So I thought I would get some opinions from the pro's... which is the overall best server platform

Windows... or Linux

Windows Web Hosting To Linux

Nov 27, 2007

I'm currently hosting some websites using XAMPP/Apache/MySQL (obviously with heavily edited configs) on Windows. The largest site has around 40,000 forum members and grows extensively every day.

Would I see better benefits buying a Linux/*nix server for web hosting needs? What flavour of Linux/*nix would be best suited out of the following options:

CentOS 4 (32 bit)
CentOS 4 (64 bit)
CentOS 5 (32 bit)
CentOS 5 (64 bit)
Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 Etch/Stable (32 bit)
Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 Etch/Stable (64 bit)
Fedora Core 6 (32 bit)
Fedora Release 7 (32bit)
FreeBSD 6.2 (32 bit)
Ubuntu Linux 6.06 LTS Dapper Drake (32 bit)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux - 5 (32 bit)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux - 5 (64 bit)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux - ES 4 (32 bit)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux - ES 4 (64 bit)

Also, would using a control panel such as cPanel (I'd say Plesk, but very bad experience with it on Windows) be beneficial?

The above would be going on a single process Quad Core with 4GB RAM.

Windows + Linux Shared Hosting

Aug 7, 2008

This one may be a bit of a stretch, but does anyone know of a shared host who gives you both Windows and Linux hosting with one account? It is possible, as the company seems to offer it, and I think (mt) MediaTemple has some betas with it.

Update: Apparently does it by giving you a primarily windows account with a linux sub-domain. That would work for me, but I'd rather a more known provider.

Hosting Review Site Or Top 3 Hosting Co. For Shared Hosting

Apr 23, 2009

I'm trying to find at least three web hosting companies to choose from to host a Joomla websites on a shared server. Would consider dedicated if the deal was right. I have a friend of mine who wants to create a church website, and is looking for the best deal. I use Netfirms which I have never had an issue with, but I didn't want to be bias, and would like give him other options to choose from.

Is there a good WebHosting Review site, I could check out, or maybe someone could recommend their top three. I reading threw the forums here and I noticed there are not that many complaints with Hostgator. Again, I just want to see if there was anything out there better.

Windows Hosting

Jul 2, 2007

I would like to compare what windows shared hosting is currently available to what I'm currently using as I'm getting charges for high bandwidth (20 gigs) for 40 websites which is not really high these days and I have to pay $1 every extra gig & its rising.

I don't want a VPS as I have tried them in the past and it is too much effort to set them up although I will use one in the future when I have the time to set one up properly. ALso with the ones I tried the memory couldn't cope and if I needed to get reasonable performance I would have had to pay a lot of $$$

My requirements are (all to be included in monthly price):

# must be unlimited or at least 50 domains can be hosted

# Offer Helm

# 50 gigs Bandwidth or more

# Clean host (no SEO banning or problems)

# Hosting Company Must not be a reseller - I want the real deal, proven & experienced host that has been around for at least 2 years. I will be doing a lot of research so please don't bother plugging your reseller business.

# I want at least 5 dedicated IP's with package

# Must offer AWStats with each domain

# Price: currently paying around $30 per month so something similar would be good

What Is Better For Windows Hosting? More CPU Or More RAM

Sep 28, 2007

I am providing linux hosting for a while now, but want to expand my services to windows hosting as well.

I am looking to get a dedicated server, but could use some help in deciding what to chose.

What would be better for windows 2003 hosting? It would normally be used for pages, and people can use ms sql (but the free msde edition). There will also be mysql on the server.

What would be better, more ram or more cpu?

config 1: less cpu, more ram

Xeon QUAD-CORE Clovertown E5130 (4 times 1,6 Ghz)
8 GB ECC DDR2 ram

config 2: more cpu, less ram

Dual QuadCore 5310 8 times 1.6GHz Cores

Also, I am looking at offering ajax for Does this take a lot of resources on the server?

And what about running apps in isolated application pools for every user. Does this take a lot of server resources?

I've been looking everywhere for a half decent, affordable, windows web hosting company. Everyone has CPanel/Linux, and I'm looking for Plesk + Windows. I'm gonna be buying a dedi soon that will run on windows, but I want some shared hosting too.
