A client is thinking about moving her WordPress site to a hosting company that has both Linux and Windows servers. We were talking about the issue and I told her to be sure and get the Linux plan if she decides to move her site.
Just curious, why do you prefer Linux?
She wanted to know why I recommended a Linux server for her WordPress site.
In the world of laptop computers, it’s really common to have Windows as the operating system. However Linux is more common for website hosts.
WordPress was built to run on Linux. While it can run on Windows servers, in my experience the software breaks down and and has weird, kludgy problems.
If you’re running WordPress stick with a Linux hosting account.
