You just bought linux hosting and now you want to know the difference between linux hosting and windows hosting? Well, you are a little bit late. Neither of them is better, but if you plan for example to create a website in ASP you would better buy a Windows hosting account.
-Linux hosting is hosting on a Linux server. Your websites are usually in PHP and you work with mysql database.
-Windows hosting is hosting on a Microsoft Windows server. Your websites are usually in ASP or ASP.NET and your database would be Microsoft sql server.
Your choice was good, Linux hosting is the most popular.
Now, what to do next? Register a domain and point it to your hosting account. For that you need to know the namerservers of your web host – log into your domain control panel and insert them into a field called DNS / nameserver.
