SerendibHost Windows hosting and Linux Hosting Packages operate on different operating systems. They differ in the followings:
- Programming Language: Linux supports PHP, Perl and cgi script; Windows supports PHP, Perl, cgi script, ASP and ASP.NET.
- Database: Linux supports MySQL database while Windows supports Microsoft SQL, MySQL database and Microsoft Access database.
- Web Control Panel: Linux hosting plan operates on CPanel while Windows operates on Parallels Plesk Control Panel.
You may first review your programming language and database requirement: "Do your site need ASP.NET?" or "Do your site need other type of Database than MySQL?". If you site happened to be a static site or the programming/database require do not occur to you, you may then try out the demo version of the different control panels and compare which one of them suits you more. If you still happened to be undecided which hosting plan to choose from, contact us for more advice.
