    Default Unix or Windows Hosting?

    I am trying to decide between hosting packages, both Unix and Windows based. It is for a small business website, ecommerce required and I will be using Wordpress. I am not tech savvy (although I can read instructions and can do the occasional cut and paste), so high emphasis is on "ease of use". That said, I will be avoiding Frontpage, for example. I currently use XP and really have no Unix experience, so...

    Unix or Win hosting?

    Does it matter what OS I currently use? Is the control panel so intuitive it dfoesnt matter and most scripts auto-installed?

    Please advise...and sorry for the dumb question.

    If you are looking to start a E-commerce and Wordpress website, then I will suggest you to opt for Unix Hosting plan rather than Windows. Control panel compatible with Unix is cPanel and with Windows is Plesk or DotNet Panel (DNP). Auto-installers like Fantastico, Softaculous or Installatron isn't compatible with Plesk or DNP. It can be installed easily in cPanel.

    You can install various E-commerce or CMS applications from those auto-installers in Linux whereas in Windows, they have to be installed manually. :: Cheap Reseller Hosting | Cloud Servers | Fully Managed Dedicated Server

    If you only have a site using HTML, then you can go with either unix or windows. You may find a better deal with Unix. If you are using special technology to drive your site, then you may prefer one platform over another
