** What is the difference between Linux and Windows accounts?
Deciding which plan and platform is right for you is often a difficult decision. We hope this explanation can help you in choosing the correct hosting platform for your website. We offer a choice between Windows-based and Linux-based web hosting platforms. While both are very reliable and widely used platforms, each has their specific advantages.

Windows hosting is often mistaken as a "must pick" only because the operating system you are running may be Windows. In fact, the majority of all websites on the Internet are hosted on the Linux platform, so most websites you have been visiting are likely to be hosted on Linux servers.

If you have Windows on your computer, you can still manage a website hosted on a Linux platform and also browse any website hosted on a Linux platform. You only need Windows-based hosting if you need Microsoft-specific applications, such as ASP, ASP.Net, Coldfusion, MSSQL Server or MS Access databases.

If you do not need any of these Microsoft-specific applications - or if you don't even know what they are, then the better choice will always be to host your website on a Linux server. Linux servers host the majority of all websites on the Internet and will provide you with highly reliable hosting services. For more details, please visit our Linux Hosting Plans.

If you are absolutely certain that your website requires Microsoft-specific applications, such as ASP, ASP.Net, Coldfusion, MSSQL Server or MS Access - please visit our Windows Hosting Plans.

** Do you support PERL?
PERL is fully supported with both Linux and Windows hosting platforms. The majority of existing CGI programs (generally perl scripts) that are available on the Internet have been developed on UNIX platforms and hence tend to install and operate much more smoothly under UNIX/Linux.

** Do you support PHP?
We support PHP 5, a scripting language similar to HTML. Using PHP, you can track and authenticate users, serve up XML pages, add additional functionality to forms, and much more. This feature is supported by all Linux and Windows hosting solutions.

** What PHP Settings can I change?
While all configurations in the default file should suite most of your web applications, some will need to be changed to meet the requirements of your web applications. To understand which PHP settings affect your web applications and what effect changing them might have, or what reasonable limits may be on the ones you may wish to change
