Short tutorial that explains you on which hosting plan windows or linux that you should choose for your website.
The primary doubt that everyone has while hosting a website is that "Which hosting? Windows or Linux?".
There is not much difference between windows and linux hosting. Both works good on all websites. Only the applications that you use matters.
Linux Hosting is always the preferred choice as it is more secure and more efficient than Windows Hosting. Linux also has more of the features web designers expect, so unless you have websites which need specific Windows applications, go for Linux Hosting.
