At the time of purchasing a hosting as first you have to choose the platform of the hosting like Windows and Linux. Generally Linux Hosting is far cheaper then Windows. but this is completely dependent on your website development if your site is built using ASP then you have to choose windows server and using PHP then you have to choose Linux server. Many windows server supports Linux also for this you have to read their manual or package includes.

I have found little difference in the prices of dedicated servers running Windows vs Linux. So, basic web hosting should be about the same price for either.

The difference is if you want to use Windows specific software such as an MSSQL database. If the web host has to purchase a license, they will pass the cost on to their customers. Thus, the price of Windows hosting goes up in such a case.

Linux is not only cheap but is also more secure and is stable since it can withstand higher load when compared to Windows. If you have designed and programmed your website on a Linux hosting server then you can easily host it on a Windows server whenever you need it, but it is not always true in the reverse order. Thus it is better to design a website in Unix.I have availed the Linux hosting from 9cubehosting.com and hence very much aware of the pros of Linux hosting.
