Which one is better, Windows hosting or Linux hosting?

Both have their own set of pros and cons. The best way to select is to look at your requirements.

Windows Hosting is costlier than Linux Web Hosting because of the proprietary software Windows Server use including Microsoft Windows while Linux servers run Linux variants, PHP, Apache etc all of which are open source.

Generally a normal static html web site works well on both. There is no specific point choosing Windows servers unless you really need some software or feature that is not provided in Linux Servers. For example, if you web site programmed in MS Dot Net, then you must buy Windows hosting whereas a php programmed site can easily operate in both Windows an Linux environment.

You need to see what you “need” and then choose the variant.
