Pros and Cons of Linux VPS Hosting & Windows VPS Hosting

VPS Hosting or Virtual Private Server Hosting has gained a lot of prominence in the recent times. It is a hybrid version of shared and dedicated server hosting, with several advantages of each type that have made this such a popular option for businesses.

Linux VPS Hosting - Linux is an open source computer operating system software program. There are several pros and cons of this type. Let's take the pros first.

- It offers a wide range of operating system options, like Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, etc.
- It works seamlessly with other free languages, like PHP, and applications.
- It is free and thus is a cheaper alternative since you don't have to pay the licensing fees or require and special software to run it.
- With its SSH access, it takes up less server space than Windows and allows better control to the user.
- Its cPanel is quite user-friendly and most users who are fans of the cPanel go for this option.
- It can run a higher number of concurrent tasks with more ease.
- Many users say that it has more reliability than Windows due to its several advanced and modern features.

Windows VPS Hosting - this runs on the proprietary operating system of Microsoft, Windows. Let's take up its advantages and disadvantages now.
