    Why Windows

    One has to remember that regardless of the desktop Operating system (O.S) on the personal computer this has nothing to do with the selection of O.S for webhosting.

    Think how many clients would need windows application like MS Access, ASP.NET, MSSQL, Visual Basic development. So considering the number of resellerís clients who need to use windows application the Reseller may opt for the Windows Reseller hosting .


    Advantages of Windows

    Windows hosting can be made compatible with Linux programming features like PHP and MySQL.

    For beginners it is better for learning, no need to learn a new language just for maintaining website.

    Better for websites driven by dynamic database and support .ASP or Active server Pages.

    Seamless integration of database i.e. Access database can be done with by the windows server.
    .
    Visual Interdev is compatible with windows.

    Most web application, Microsoft applications are compatible.

    Provides complete integration for database servers like MSSQL, MySQL, MSDE.

    At high server loads windows provide server stability.

    Additional cost for license seems small in comparison to the features offered by windows.

    Reseller hosting is a type of web hosting service where owner of the account has the permissions to create customers under his account to sell certain amount of disk space & bandwidth to his customers without renting a Dedicated / VPS server. This applies to both both Windows & Linux hosting platform.

    Advantages of windows reseller account would be for those who has customer base of websites using language supported only by windows [Asp / Silverlight / MVC]. Additional Licensing costs for windows comes into consideration only when opting for VPS/dedicated server. In both Linux & Windows Shared reseller plans, customers are provided access to control panel only. Through which you can manage your website settings.

    The concern here is of your requirement rather than that of advantage, if you have websites running on languages only supported by windows then the choice is clear.

    Apart from supported applications like asp.net, ms sql, mvc and many more, the main advantage of a Windows reseller account is the ability to create multiple windows shared account to resell and earn.

    And only disadvantage can be the lack of root RDP access unlike VPS

    You are right. We have a additional licensing cost for some OS on VPS or Cloud because in Reseller plans we install the OS on the main Dedicated server on which your account is setup. So all the accounts setup on the main Dedicated server will have the OS which is insalled on main Dedicated server. As VPS or Cloud is like small Dedicated server, so OS has to be installed on that particular server.

    The best thing about reseller hosting is that it is your online business while at the same time, the technical support is provided by the web hosting company. This makes it a very safe online business. A good customer base and an efficient reseller hosting plan is surely the key to great profits.

    When you are talking about Licensing cost on Windows Reseller plans, there is no licensing cost on Operating system. We provide Windows 2008 Enterprise edition OS as standard with the hosting plan. MS SQL 2005 Enterprise is also provided as standard with the hosting plan. The user also has a option to opt for MS SQL 2008 Enterprise by paying additional licensing fee. We also provide Clodfusion on our Windows Reseller plans at a additional cost.

    Hi Williams

    I guess you are talking about Windows Reseller Hosting. Can you provide more details about how much licensing cost is included in the expenditure?

    There are multiple benefits of using window as a platform but one of the big disadvantage of using windows is the cost. While going window, the licensing cost is involved in the expenditure.

    In my opinion the main advantage of Windows Reseller Hosting is that it is a complete solution that works best with the Windows based applications like Outlook and MS Office. Moreover Windows also offers a diverse line of products and services; offers support to technologies like PHP, Perl and ASP.NET; these technologies enable higher efficiency of the hosting activities.

    Windows Plans are generally expensive when compared with other OS. Windows happens to be a paid OS. This obviously increases the cost of the hosting package or the server. However, some users have tasks and applications that need only windows hosting, that's the reason they will opt for it no matter how much extra they need to pay.

    The disadvantage with windows hosting is that it uses more resources. The windows server use more resources than one running on Unix. That means you need sufficient resources on the server like RAM, more disk space which will ofcourse increase the cost.

    Re:

    If you are familiar with the Windows operating system, having a Windows based server will make the learning process much easier. You wonít have to worry about learning a new language just to maintain your website. For beginners, this is a definite plus.

    Customers prefer using a windows based account when the need the following functions:

    - ASP Support
    - ASP.NET Support
    - Powerful SQL Server Database
    - Access Database Support
    - PHP and MySQL Compatible
    - IIS Web Server

    these can also be said the advantages of a windows account. Linux does not support ASP, ASP.net, Mssql and other microsoft based applications.
