Shared web hosting is what the majority of people mean when they refer to "web hosting". It simply means that many customers' websites reside on a single web server, and that the server's resources are shared among every account on the machine. Customers who do not need the flexibility or performance of a VPS greatly benefit from what shared web hosting has to offer.
If your website plans to incorporate PHP, Perl or MySQL languages, Linux is the solution you should choose. Linux is also ideal for the kind of websites that display information as a brochure, in newsletter format or as data sheets. Linux works well for ‘brochure-ware’ sites that offer interaction via enquiry forms, online purchasing and other e-commerce functions.
Windows facilitates varying degrees of design and management through a drag-and-drop philosophy, via .Net Framework and SharePoint. By this, Windows presents an advantage when it comes to the integration of Windows applications when you’re designing your website.
