    Web site hosting

    I thought I'd posted a thread on this topic about a year ago but my search doesn't find it

    So, if you were looking for a web hosting site, would you prefer Windows NT-based hosting or Linux based hosting? And why (e.g. lack of familiarity with Linux, better performance, access to features/databases/etc.)?

    If you are the end user, having your domain hosted, then you wont notice much difference. Performance wise, access wise, feature wise. You will still upload your site via ftp, nothing will be different really for you.. From an admin stand point, I would say it's all preference. I have ran both, and they both have their postives and negatives. You can pretty much do everything the same on both.

    I would go with Linux just because it is cheaper. Do some price comparisons and you 'll see that the Linux hosting is cheaper. Also it will depend on what you will be using the hosting for.

    Interesting. I was looking at lunarpages or a Canadian one (Cirrushosting).

    It doesn't really matter where you are hosted. I have been with them for about 5 years with no problems and it's hard to argue their prices.
