When Time to choose web hosting plan, we face many problems like which hosting plan I choose? which company offer more economical plan? which hosting server need to choose? In this post We are going to discus which web hosting server is better for hosting a website.
1. Server Access
Both Window and Linux server allow to access directly using FTP, but only Linux server can allow to set up telnet or ssh access. Some window server administrator allow to access using telnet.
3. URL Rewriting / Redirection
For URL rewriting or redirecting, Linux server support .htaccess file while Window server does not support .htaccess file, window server support web.config file for rewriting or redirecting rules.
Actually I am writing this post to share my experience with you. I have another website tutorialdata.com, it started one year ago, when it started, it created using all static pages, each time when want to add page, all other pages related to that category need to update, so that was very complicated and boring. That time I am not familiar with php, then I learn php and create dynamic website and use .htacces to create SEO friendly URL, but that time website is hosted on window server and server does not support .htaccess file. So I decided to switch Linux server and now its fine, very fine.
So If you want to use .htaccess with php Linux server is best and want to use ASP then you need to use web.config for URL rewrite for that Window server is best.
