If you have designed a basic site with HTML you will find Linux hosting offers the best features for you, even if you use Windows in your home or office.
If you want to create a dynamic site using a server side scripting language and perhaps a database then you will have to choose more carefully:
If you prefer to use PHP or PERL with a MySQL database then Linux hosting is for you. - or maybe Java hosting if you need Java Applications.
If you prefer to use ASP, ASP.NET, Microsoft SQL Server or MySQL database then Windows hosting is for you.

Linux is an open source operating system used by the vast majority of web servers because of its stellar security record and fast development and support from the open source community. Linux Web Hosting is cheaper than its windows equivalent, simply because there is no single organisation that owns Linux and so there are
no licence fees. Linux Web Hosting is simpler and can be more reliable.
