Common misconceptions between Linux VPS and Windows VPS

Common misconceptions between Linux VPS and Windows VPS.

Windows VPS Hosting is easier to use than Linux VPS

A common misconception is that the Windows VPS hosting plans are easier to use by people who have never used Linux or by people who don't know the Linux operating system. That may have been the case back in the late 1990s, but these days if you know how to point and click and can fill out an online form you can use a Linux VPS hosting plan. The key thing to look for when selecting a plan is the type of control panel that is offered, if any. The control panel is the interface that does all the behind the scenes work for you, allowing you to just point and click to set up new websites and control your Virtual server.

Linux VPS's are Safer than Windows VPS's

Generally speaking, a Linux web server may be less vulnerable to exploits than a Windows server, but from a security standpoint. Your website is far more vulnerable to exploits by what you place on your virtual private server. That is why, managed hosting plans usually do not allow you to place anything on the server without the prior approval of the system administrators. If you install a copy of WordPress and don't keep it up to date with security patches, you may be exposed to a vulnerability over time, regardless of which operating system you choose.
