Linux vs Windows Hosting

I am currently in the process of deciding on whether to use Linux or Windows for hosting. I am wondering how much experience I need to have with Linux to be able to work with it. I currently have the most basic understanding of how to use the operating system. Also, what are the pros and cons of each? Thanks in advance.

Hi @bjhunt918,

in the godaddy environment I don't see much difference, in the world environment all the most powerful servers run on Linux or a unix variant, such as BSD, not windows. But it's just simply down to what you are most comfortable with. If your background is with windows, go for this, if Linux then go for that.

FYI, the GoDaddy page comparing the two is here:
