web hosting

I’m making a pretty basic site, some css and galleries…
Will I need support for asp, php etc. My service offers Linux and Windows packages, is that an issue?

Generally speaking, you will need support for ASP only if you are a
Windows programmer and don’t want to learn one of the Web languages
like PHP or Ruby.

If you use the Windows hosting package, you may eventually run into
all sorts of support nightmares if you expect it to work like a normal
Unix server, and you will encounter scripts (PHP or Ruby or other open-
source stuff) that will need to be fundamentally re-written to support
Windows, even though all of the same languages run on Windows.

So if you want to ski the fall line of Web development, I would pick a
*nix hosting package, all other things being equal. But if you have to
create a Web interface to a special application that will only run on
Windows, then you already know what you need there.

And to think I chose Linux hosting just because I didn’t want anything
to do with Windows, it turns out the better choice anyway.
