About Windows Hosting

Windows hosting is provided on a Microsoft Windows Server environment. People usually use Windows hosting since it enables them to use Microsoft technologies such as ASP and ASP.NET, in addition to Microsoft SQL servers. If you have no need for these technologies, you are probably better off hosting on a regular Linux, since it costs less, and is considered by most experts to be the most reliable platform for hosting websites.

These days, a Windows host would most typically host sites using the Windows 2008 or IIS 7.0 platform. These are excellent and reliable platforms with plenty of robuts features. Many major sites now use Windows hosting with ASP pages, and if you are looking for a good web development environment, Windows hosting is definitely worth investigating.
