Differences be
een Linux and Windo s Hos
ing
Accessing
he Server

The firs
difference
ha
mos
people no
ice i
h Web hos
ing
opera
ing sys
ems is ho you access
he server. Bo
h Windo s and
Linux offer FTP access
o your files, bu
only Linux ill generally
offer
elne
or ssh access. (I
s possible
o se
up
elne
access on
Windo s, bu
very fe hos
ing adminis
ra
ors offer i
.) FTP is a ay
of
ransferring your files from your hard drive
o your Web server.
Telne
and SSH are a ay
o open a indo direc
ly on
he Web
server and manipula
e files righ

here, usually using Unix command
line commands.

Wri
ing Your Pages

Bo
h Windo s and Linux servers ill serve HTML pages
and JavaScrip
. Typically, Windo s servers use files named *.h
m
hile Linux servers use files named *.h
ml, bu

here is no real
difference be
een
hese names, jus
ha
you prefer.

Fron
Page ex
ensions are of
en ci
ed as
he reason
o use a Windo s
server. Bu

here are Linux servers
ha
offer
his service as ell.

 I

 I and Perl access are of


en found on bo
h Windo s and Linux
servers, bu
i
is more
ypical on Linux. If you need
o program forms,
you should make sure
ha
your hos
ing service provides  I or
ano
her ay
o process
hem.

O
her Server-Side Scrip
s

Bu
you re no
s
uck i
h jus
Perl if you need
o process forms. Many
hos
ing sys
ems offer PHP, ASP, and oldFusion. These server side
scrip
ing op
ions give you a lo
of flexibili
y. PHP is more of
en found
on Linux sys
ems, hile ASP is more of
en found on Windo s.
oldFusion can be found on bo
h.

Da
abases

If you re going
o run a dynamically driven Web si
e,
hen you ll an

a da
abase. The
o mos
popular are mySQL and Access. mySQL
runs on bo
h Linux and Windo s, bu
is more of
en found on Linux
servers. Access is only available for Windo s.

Securi
y

Securi
y is very impor
an

o your Web hos
. Many people ill argue

ha
Windo s servers have more vulnerabili
ies
han Linux servers.
Bu

he reali
y is
ha

hey bo
h have securi
y problems. Securi
y is
more impor
an
a

he hos
ing service s adminis
ra
ion level
han i
is
a

he opera
ing sys
em level. If you have good adminis
ra
ors, your
server ill be more secure - regardless of OS.

The Bo

om Line

The differences be
