Hosting Websites

Website hosting services from Thinking IT allows individuals and businesses to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web.

Windows or Linux

Thinking IT offer both ‘Linux’ and ‘Windows’ web hosting packages.

The terms Linux and Windows refer to the operating system running on the web servers. Generally, the only time you would need to choose Windows hosting is if you are using any files or databases that will only run on the Windows operating system.

You should choose Windows hosting if:

  1. Any files of your website end with .asp, .aspx, or .net. (i.e.: index.asp)
  2. You need a MS SQL database. (Also known as ‘Microsoft SQL Server’.)

For anything else, you are probably safer to choose Linux web hosting; particularly if you are building a ‘dynamic’ website.

If you’re not sure which type of hosting you need, please feel free to contact us; we’ll be happy to help you make an informed decision on what is best for your current needs and future plans.
