Server Hosting

Windows VPS vs. Linux VPS

One of the most important decisions to make when choosing a virtual private server (VPS) is whether a Linux or Windows-based option is right for you.  While IT professionals often swear by one or another, these two systems are aimed at meeting the requirements of two different types of users.  Windows and Linux are both very different operating systems, with Linux being an open source operating system that is free to use and Windows a commercial operating system.  While many basic functions are shared between the two, the prices and uses of a Windows VPS and a Linux VPS are very different.
