Linux Website Hosting

Linux website hosting has been the standard hosting environment for many years, although Windows platforms that support ASP (active server pages) are becoming increasingly popular recently.

Most web site hosting companies offer Linux or Unix website hosting plans on their shared servers. Linux, in addition to being free, has been around long enough that the software is incredibly stable and performs very well. Linux hosting uptime is traditionally at 99.9% or better, depending of course on how well the hardware that it is running on is maintained, and how often the host elects to take down the server for other reasons. Very rarely will a Linux server crash of its own accord.

Linux systems are also easy to maintain from a software point of view. The operating system has been around long enough that technical support personnel are well trained, and there is plenty of readily available knowledge to assist them. There is also a wealth of plug in software available that your website can take advantage of.

Another advantage of choosing a Linux website host is that, in the event that you need to move your site to another hosting provider, you will generally have no problem. Even if you move to a Windows hosting plan, your web pages that worked on the Linux server should have no compatibility problems. The reverse is not necessarily true, a page developed on a Windows server will not necessarily work on a Linux server.

All of our recommended web site hosts offer Linux/Unix hosting plans, some also offer ASP hosting or ASP extensions that allow active server pages to run on a Linux server (sometimes at an additional charge).
