What is the difference between Linux and Windows shared hosting?

We offer a choice between Linux and Windows shared hosting platforms. While both are very reliable and widely used platforms, each has their specific advantages. If your website is developed using Microsoft technology like ASP.NET, MS Access and SQL database then Windows hosting will be the right choice. If it is designed using PHP and My SQL / PG SQL then you should take a Linux hosting plan. If you are using only html pages your website will work on both Linux and windows.
