Linux Web Hosting,

  • Linux is the most popular operating system due to its open-source platform. Open-source systems allow code to be modified and redistributed without restriction.
  • Linux users often rely on cPanel to mange web development tasks. Although providers may include cPanel, it is a third-party application.
  • Windows and Linux have many similar features and are compatible for most key tasks.

     

    Linux,

    an open-source operating system, is the most popular OS among web hosting providers. Open source means the source code can be used, modified, and redistributed freely in both commercial and noncommercial capacities. Web hosting providers prefer this to the more restrictive Windows platform because it allows greater customization in server capabilities and user options.

    Few hosting services offer Windows-based hosting, and those that do charge a higher monthly fee than Linux-based hosting. Historically, Windows has struggled as a hosting platform in terms of stability, but recent iterations of the product place it on a similar playing field to Linux.
