Choosing Windows or Linux as a hosting platform depends on what applications, programming languages, and tools you are going to use to build your next website or web based application. While Linux is probably one of the most popular hosting platforms on the market, many clients including larger businesses, government agencies, web developers, and individual users make use of Microsoft products and technologies like Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft SQL Server, ASP.NET, SharePoint services, and many others, which are natively supported by the Windows platform. Therefore, it is only natural that these clients choose Windows hosting in order to achieve seamless integration of all the applications and technologies they use.
No other platform is able to provide the level of unification and integration that is possible to achieve with the Windows platform, making Windows the preferred choice for many companies and individual users. Since Windows is so popular, many web hosting companies have designed Windows hosting solutions specifically for Windows. And among these Windows hosting solutions, dedicated server hosting offers the best options in terms of hardware and software features. Although the most expensive of all, Windows dedicated server hosting provides all the benefits of the dedicated hosting combined with the power of the latest Microsoft technologies like Windows Server 2008 R2, IIS 7.5, ASP.NET 4.0, and other powerful tools and features.
Benefits of Windows dedicated web hosting over other types of hosting solutions
Benefits of Windows dedicated server hosting are twofold. First, it is beneficial over other types of hosting, like shared hosting and VPS hosting, in terms of hardware resources, security, and stability. With Windows dedicated server hosting, you get the most powerful, flexible, secure, and stable Windows platform for your website. Your website account will be the only one on the server so all server resources like CPU power, RAM, disk space, and bandwidth are completely dedicated to your website.
Since your website does not share resources with other hosting accounts, your website will be much more secure and stable. Your website will not be affected by other website accounts like it would with shared hosting and VPS hosting. With dedicated hosting, you also get unparalleled flexibility in terms of server hardware and software configurations. You get to choose and install exactly what you need for your website – from operating system (NT, Server 2003 or 2008) to tools like IIS, MSSQL, Silverlight, or even PHP.
Secondly, the Windows hosting platform is beneficial over the Linux hosting platform because in addition to native support for all recent and older Microsoft technologies, Windows hosting provides support for most Linux-specific tools like PHP, Perl, MySQL, and SSI. Conversely, the Linux platform provides only limited support for only some Microsoft-based technologies like FrontPage and ASP.
Windows dedicated server solutions are absolutely necessary for those who want to truly unveil the power of the Windows platform and get the most out of what Windows hosting has to offer. With the ability to install and run any software that Windows platform supports, you also get seamless integration with all the latest Microsoft services and technologies like SharePoint services, Silverlight, and Hyper-V. Windows dedicated web servers provide enough resources required for these latest technologies. And the ability to quickly scale up your resources with dedicated hosting means you will always have enough power to run your website as it grows in size and popularity.
