Windows vs. Linux Servers For Hosting

Windows and Linux refer to different types of operating systems. The most popular operating system for web servers is Linux. Due to it's popularity, there are more features for websites. Windows servers are used when you have specific Window applications that you need. Another difference is that file names are case sensitive on Linux servers and are not on Windows servers.

Below is a list of Windows applications that require a Windows server:

  • ASP Classic
  • MSSQL (Microsoft SQL Server)
  • MS Access (Microsoft Access)
  • Visual Basic Development
  • C#
  • Remote Desktop (dedicated server only)
  • Microsoft Exchange (requires license & installation)
  • Microsoft SharePoint (requires license & installation)
