Advantages of Choosing Linux Dedicated Hosting Services

It is a well established fact that dedicated web hosting is more reliable and effective because businesses do not have to worry about other users eating up the bandwidth or storage space. Amongst dedicated hosting plans, Linux dedicated hosting appears to be the most beneficial, scoring over its competitor Windows.

Why should you choose Linux dedicated servers?

You must consider both performance record and budget when choosing a web hosting package. The more reputed web hosting services are bound to cost more while cheap servers may not guarantee great uptime and bandwidth. This is why e-commerce websites prefer to opt for dedicated hosting plans to ensure that their sites are up and running at all times. You can choose between Linux dedicated hosting and Windows dedicated hosting depending on the ease of use, budget and application requirements. Compared to the Windows dedicated hosting plans, Linux is more affordable since you are not required to license the operating system. So, for businesses that have to work on a tight budget, Linux is a better option.

Advantages of Linux dedicated hosting plans:

  • Linux dedicated servers give you greater control in times of emergency because you can reboot them at your own convenience. You are free to set up multiple software and tools on these dedicated servers and then customize these with your preferred OS.

  • It is possible to customize and upgrade the Linux dedicated servers from time to time. Most of the existing programs can be upgraded free of cost.

  • Compared to Windows dedicated servers, Linux dedicated servers are affordable priced. Since the OS is free, you can save a lot of money on a recurring basis.

  • Linux also offers effective security provisions like firewall and malware services, anti-spyware etc which can prevent attacks.

  • Linux is reliable especially for businesses using scripting languages. Being easily scalable, it becomes easy to add Linux dedicated servers.


These advantages show that Linux dedicated hosting plans can handle heavy site traffic deftly without incurring excess expenditure.
