Difference Between Linux Hosting And Window Hosting by Worthwhile(m) : 4:20 am On Mar 15, 2017

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.

Operating System
Linux OS is open source while Window OS is proprietary due to licensing.


Linux servers are inexpensive compared to Window's.

Windows servers and Linux servers use different control panels. Linux servers uses Cpanel for all Linux-based hosting plans, such as Linux Shared, Reseller, VPS and Linux Dedicated Servers.It also uses WHM (Windows Host Manager) on Linux Reseller, VPS and Dedicated Servers. Windows servers on the other hand run on plesk.

Development tools
Linux servers offer CGI, perl and PHP while Window servers offer ASP, .NET and PHP.

MySQL database runs on Linux servers while MySQL and MSSQL runs on windows server.

With Linux, files and directory names are case sensitive for example, on a Linux server, home.html and Home.html are different names while they are case insensitive with windows, for example, on a Windows server, home.html, Home.html and HOME.HTML are all the same name.

FTP Access
Linux Os have FTP Access along with Telnet and SSH access while Windows Os has FTP Access.

In Linux servers, users can make alterations in the code while in window's, users don't have access to the code to make alterations.

Linux servers are stable, robust and have high uptime while windows are less reliable and robust.
