Why choose Linux hosting from IONOS

Linux Hosting

FAQ

Both Linux and Windows have proven to be a powerful basis for creating large websites. Each operating system offers all the basic functions required to run your website. In principle, numerous open source applications are available in order to get the best of Linux.

Linux is also particularly suitable for PHP, Perl, or MySQL. You can also use Linux web hosting if you have a Windows operating system already installed on your home computer or laptop. External servers and your end devices can all be easily connected to one another.

IONOS provides a selection of hosting plans that can be ordered with either a Linux or Windows server. If you just want a basic online presence, the small hosting package is the ideal solution.

If you have more advanced projects in mind, choose one of our larger hosting packages. For businesses, we recommend our largest hosting package. All three hosting packages come with sufficient amount of webspace and georedundancy to protect your website's data.

Yes, you can use different web addresses for your IONOS hosting plans. You can host as many web addresses as you like, from hosting multiple subdomains to hosting unlimited external domains.

Yes, you can host your WordPress website on IONOS! All IONOS web hosting packages provide the necessary processing power and memory capacity for your WordPress websites.

We use the Debian Linux distribution for our web hosting. Debian is a flexible and beginner-friendly operating system with minimal system requirements that includes a diverse array of applications and utility programs. Debian has been continuously evolving since 1996 and the extensively tested OS (operating system) can now be installed on every modern Linux server.

No. As a customer you do not have direct access to the operating system of the server. In the shop you can either opt for the current Linux or the current Windows version.

Windows and Linux are two very different types of operating systems – each with unique advantages. Both Linux and Windows formats will work on any PC regardless of the operating system in use. However, each technology has its own distinctive characteristics.

Linux web hosting is ideal if you are using PHP, MySQL. or Perl programming languages, or if your website displays information in brochure, newsletter, or data sheet formats.

Windows offers Windows-specific technologies such as ASP, .NET, and Microsoft Access. There are also various advantages if you plan to integrate Windows-based applications or searchable databases within your website.

If you aim to use out-of-the box solutions for powering content management systems or blogs, bear in mind that there are generally more open source applications available for Linux web hosting, whereas Windows licensed solutions will likely incur costs.

No, as a customer you do not need any knowledge of the operating system of your server, which is a complex, closed system that you do not have direct access to. Instead, we will do all the required technical and administrative maintenance, security, backup and updating work for you, so the full scope and functionality of your IONOS web hosting package is always available to you. All other relevant work, like integrating your content, installing subdomains or creating email addresses can be done easily via a special management interface, without having to work directly with the operating system.
