Windows is the most prominent operating system released under a proprietary software license, whereas Linux is the most prominent operating system released under a free software license. However, most Linux distribution sites also have proprietary components for their distribution available.
Both technologies are suitable for beginners, professional web developers, and everyone in between, but it is essential to choose the technology that is more suited to your style of web building. Each technology has its own distinct advantages for users.
If you plan to incorporate work that uses PHP, Perl or MySQL, Linux is the solution you should choose.
Microsoft should be your choice of platform if you plan on utilizing Active Server Pages or other Microsoft applications to design your web pages. The Microsoft platform delivers reduced development time and better functionality for databases.
ASP.NET hosting is a technology and coding language used on servers to create websites. It is used every time you select Windows hosting. ASP.NET hosting is a common, stable and extensive solution, which is why IONOS offers it next to Linux within our hosting packages. It is based on the .NET framework, which makes it very effective when working with other Windows applications. With the web platform, Microsoft offers all the functions that are needed to bring server-based content and applications online with high performance. One of the biggest advantages of ASP.NET hosting is that it is compatible with all of the most important web standards. ASP hosting goes hand in hand with coding languages such as PHP, Java and C#, which guarantees full compatibility of your hosting package with your project. The mix of flexibility and harmonization makes ASP.NET hosting an effective technology for lowering development time and raising the performance of your project.
ASP.NET Shared web hosting service is when one's Web site is placed on the same windows server as many other sites, ranging from a few to hundreds or thousands. Typically, all domains may share a common pool of server resources, such as RAM and the CPU.
MS SQL (Microsoft SQL Server) is a relational database management system (RDBMS) produced by Microsoft. Its primary query language is Transact-SQL, an implementation of the ANSI/ISO standard Structured Query Language (SQL) used by both Microsoft and Sybase.
Hosting account fee does not include a free domain name. We do provide a temporary domain name for you to test your website. However, if you wish to have your own domain, you can register it from us. Our domain registration starts at $10/yr.
Yes you can upgrade at any time. If you are upgrading from Shared Hosting to Business Hosting we will need to migrate your account to a different server and will arrange a convenient time to do this for you with minimal downtime.
We take an automatic backup on a daily basis for all accounts. Customers on our Startup and Performance plans can restore files directly from these backups via your control panel, as well as initiate on-demand snapshots of their account.
The automated backups we take are strictly speaking for the purposes of full server restoration, and as per our terms, we do not guarantee the availability of these backups. We would therefore recommend that customers purchase our professional backup solution, CodeGuard, which will take a daily backup and enable you to automatically restore your site or individual files as needed. CodeGuard can be added during the order process.
It's true that some hosts claim to offer 'unlimited' space. The reality is that unlimited space is actually nothing more than a marketing gimmick - the host will have a large number of other restrictions in place which will prevent you from actually using an very large amount of disk space. We prefer to be up-front about disk allocations, with no sneaky surprises. Our focus is on quality, and we invest heavily in ensuring that our hosting platform is the best possible. We use highly available SSD block storage - it's significantly faster than traditional SATA based storage, or even standalone SSD drives. We store your data three times for full redundancy, in addition to taking backups.
The truth is, you probably don't need 'unlimited' disk space. Over 95% of sites we host on our shared platform use less than 10GB, so our plans are usually more than adequate for most needs. If your priority is for unlimited space, hosts that offer this usually do so using cheap disks, and often have overcrowded servers. We always want our focus to be on quality, and ensuring that our customers always enjoy the best possible speed and reliability for their websites.
You can pay monthly or for 1, 2 or 3 years up front. If you decide to pre-pay, we give you some great discounts on our ongoing pricing. A one year prepayment gives you 2 free months, a 2 year prepayment gives you 6 free months and a 3 year prepayment gives you a whole year free!
At Absolute Hosting our passion lies in providing SuperFast Windows Web Hosting that’s tailored to provide you with the Absolute Best Locally Hosted Windows Experience. Every part of our Windows Hosting Environment is hosted on SuperFast SSD Powered servers that deliver amazingly fast web page load times, low latency and high output SQL Database servers, SSD Optimized MySQL Servers and Windows Hosted Email Solutions.
Our Windows web servers have been specifically hand built using only the best SuperMicro Server Hardware and complimented with cherry picked SSD Hard Drives which deliver industry leading performance.
When it comes to building a Windows Web Hosting environment it’s the attention to detail that matters most. As such our SuperMicro powered Windows servers are optimized with multiple SSD drives according to each SSD’s function to ensure that the server hardware and Windows operating system can leverage off each SSD according to the disk’s function on the web server.
This may sound a little Greek at first and super tech savvy but it’s something that most system engineers overlook. Installing Windows on to a physical hard drive and running the web server off of the same SSD drive leads to major bottlenecks and we’ll describe why. Windows is constantly writing data to SSD drive for every event that occurs on the server, and for each website request the IIS service (web service) needs to read data from the SSD.
When you combine these two functions on the same disk your end result is delay or latency on the disk which results in reduced load times. To complication matters even worse SSD’s drives dont all act the same and perform better under different functions, ie some do better at writing where as others do better at reading. Because of this we we use separate SSD drives within our Windows Web Servers to ensure that the Windows Server Operating System doesn’t interfere with website data and website logs.
