Windows hosting

Windows web hosting has been added to our product range to give our customers even more choice when deciding on a hosting platform for their website. Whilst Linux still dominates the market, there are a significant number of websites that use Microsoft technology to power their sites, and we felt it important that our customers should be able to have the option of both platforms when choosing their hosting package.

According to Netcraft, around 1 in 5 website owners use Windows web servers to power their site, making up a huge number of people all over the world that make use of Microsoft technology to put their websites together. 

Who is it for?
The launch of Windows web hosting is particularly useful for people who build their websites with Windows specific web applications such as ASP, .Net, MSSQL and Access. When viewing our web hosting packages, customers will be able to view the specifications for both Linux and Windows platforms, and choose which they want depending on what suits them best.  Unlike the existing Linux hosting packages, our Windows web hosting only has one tier, allowing websites of all sizes to take advantage of the platform.

Can I only use Windows web hosting if I have Windows on my computer?
For anyone who is unsure of the differences between Windows and Linux web hosting, it’s important to remember that, fundamentally, it doesn’t matter what kind of computer you have used to put your website together, only how you have built it. The compatibility of your choice of web server won’t be affected by whether you use Mac or PC at home, but by the programs and applications you have used and, looking forward, the installs and updates you want to make use of.

A popular program for Windows web hosting users for example is Umbraco, a content management system specifically for websites that use Microsoft technology.
