Which platform is right for me?

1. If I have the Windows operating system on my PC, do I need Windows hosting?
No. You don’t have to use Windows hosting if your PC uses the Microsoft Windows operating system. A Windows server is very different from a Windows desktop and most of your interaction with your web server will be through file transfers (FTP) or a web interface.


2. What is the difference between Unix and Windows hosting?
Both Unix web hosting and Windows web hosting let you put a website online with almost no effort at all. But, there are some differences. The decision to choose one web hosting platform over another depends on what type of developing languages you use.

Unix
Choose a Unix platform for your hosting package if you are going to use programming languages such as PHP, Ruby, Perl, Python or if you are going to use CGI scripts and want to interface with a database such as mySQL. If you are buying an Hosting package for the first time, you may find Unix easier to use.

Windows
Choose a Windows platform for your hosting package if you intend to use specific Windows programming languages/frameworks such as ASP and ASP.NET. Our Windows hosting customers typically use Access or MS SQL databases. ASP and ASP.NET typically require some programming on your computer before they can be used.


3. Is the blog feature available on both platforms?
Yes. You can add a WordPress blog application on either platform.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is cloud hosting?

    Cloud hosting provides the server space where your website lives on the internet. It is one of the three essential components of establishing your online presence: a domain name, a website and cloud hosting. Your domain name tells people where to find you, your website is viewed by your visitors, and hosting makes your site part of the internet. If you think of your website as a house and your domain name as an address, web hosting is the plot of land where your website sits.

  • What are the features of Register.com's cloud hosting services?

    Our hosting packages include powerful features and tools to help you build and define your website, FTP accounts, popular programming languages, blogging, and a 99.9% uptime guarantee. Our full-featured cloud hosting packages are available for UNIX® users and include large amounts of disk space, unlimited data transfer and high capacity email storage. Plus, our hosting packages include a variety of free open source applications, an easy-to-use Website Builder Tool, email and more.

  • How does cloud hosting work?

    Cloud hosting helps run your website over many different servers. It’s a great option that offers more security. If a hardware failure happens, your website will remain online.

  • What is the difference between cloud and WordPress Hosting?

    With cloud hosting, you get the ease and flexibility of building your own website with our website builder or any web content management system.

    WordPress hosting is designed specifically to work with WordPress. So, you get the robust features of WordPress and your site works faster than one hosted on a typical cloud hosting platform.

    Whether you want to create your own website or you prefer to use our website design and development services, Register.com has the plan for you.

  • How do I know which hosting package is best for me?

    To choose the right hosting package, first think about the goals of your business, how you plan to use your website, and how much traffic you expect.

    Hosting packages vary by the size of disk space, monthly data transfer, number of email boxes, and tools such as open source applications and programming languages. Your goals will help inform which website hosting features are right for you.
