What is web hosting?

Yes, each Speednames website hosting package must be associated with a domain name registered through Speednames to work.

If you have a domain name registered with another provider but would like to use web hosting from Speednames with it, simply transfer your domain to us before buying web hosting.

What is the difference between Linux and Windows web hosting?

Linux and Windows are two different operating systems. The operating system that you use on your computer should not determine your choice.

For example, if your computer is run by Windows Microsoft, Linux hosting will work just as well as Windows hosting. Deciding between Linux and Windows web hosting depends on your style of web building. If you plan to use PHP, MySQL or Perl together with a range of software programs, Linux is the one for you. Linux web hosting is also suitable for ‘brochure-ware’ sites that offer interaction via enquiry forms, online purchasing and other e-commerce functions.

However, if you are looking to incorporate searchable databases and Windows-specific applications such as ASP then choose Windows web hosting.
