Linux or Windows Hosting ?

For most businesses, generally you will only ever need Linux Hosting.

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.

Choose a Linux Hosting account if you're going to use PHP, Ruby, Perl, Python, or CGI scripting. All Our Linux accounts use a MySQL database. If you plan on using a Web application to blog, podcast, or create a shopping cart, check to see what language the developers used to create the application.

Windows Hosting is only useful if you are going to use ASP or ASP.NET. Windows hosting customers typically use a SQL Server (MS SQL) or Access database. If you plan on using a Web application to blog, podcast, or create a shopping cart, check to see what language the developers used to create the application. ASP.NET application typically require some programming on your computer before you can use the application online.

Domain Registry do not provide Windows hosting unless specically asked for. For more information about Domain names and domain name registration and Hosting please go to our FAQ section.
