Windows Server Hosting vs. Linux Server Hosting

UKFast Enterprise is highly experienced in delivering both Windows dedicated servers and Linux dedicated servers. We offer a consultative approach to provide advice on choosing the right option for your business.

The primary consideration when choosing an operating system for dedicated server hosting is the applications that will be used by your organisation. For example PHP and MySQL are available on both platforms whereas a site written in ASP or using Microsoft SQL requires a Windows operating system.

Windows dedicated servers have a familiar, easy to use interface. Linux dedicated servers are suitable for more technically experienced users, with little graphical interaction, offering many opportunities for customisation.

Linux is an open source operating system, which means that it is highly customisable and there are no operating system licences to consider.

UKFast Enterprise is an official Red Hat partner, but also supports CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu and more; with a team of experienced Linux support engineers available to advise on your solution and provide expert support.

Microsoft is a familiar operating system, with a user-friendly interface and a large suite of solutions. As a Microsoft Gold partner, we are highly competent in providing Windows solutions, with a team of qualified Microsoft engineers to support you around the clock.

All of our enterprise dedicated hosting solutions are fully customisable, and our solutions architects will advise you on storage, processors, clustering, load balancing, security features and backup options.
