                                               An Introduction to UNIX Web Hosting
                                                               By Russell Blanc

  What Is UNIX? UNIX was first developed in AT&T’s Bell Laboratories in the early 1970’s. In the four
decades of use, the UNIX operating system has earned the reputation as one of the most powerful,
versatile and flexible secure operating systems around.

 The UNIX operating system has been under constant development ever since its inception. It is
extremely stable system for servers, desktops and laptops.

 UNIX systems also have a graphical user interface similar to Microsoft Windows which provides an
easy to use environment. In the early 1980's, UNIX systems began to grow rapidly and was noticed by
industry analysts and researchers. Throughout the 1980's, the debate about the strengths and
weaknesses of UNIX systems often raged. And, in an effort to further differentiate competing UNIX
system products, analysts kept developing and adding features of their own.

Why Should I Choose UNIX?

You should choose the platform based on your website needs. Define specific functions you need your
website to perform along with the programming language and database required to perform them.

What is Free BSD and OpenBSD?

 There are two main Unix-based operating systems: FreeBSD and OpenBSD. The good thing about
these systems is that they seem to be very stable once you install them on your machines. OpenBSD
is also known to be one of the most secure operating system in the world. But with OpenBSD you will
have to sacrifice some features for security. Again the best thing about these systems is that they are
both free.

What Scripting Languages Are Available For UNIX?

UNIX supports a wide variety of application languages, more than any other operating system. The
most common include C, C++, Shell, Perl, Tcl, Python, Java and PHP.

What Databases Does UNIX Support?

                                              Presented by Daniel Toriola

 Databases available for UNIX are SQL and mySQL. Which one you choose depends on your needs
and what your Web Hosting Provider offers. This is an important item for you to review when choosing
your web hosting company.

Why is UNIX better for your hosting purposes?

 Most obviously because it is cheaper than Windows. It is also more reliable and secure. About 70% of
the internet web servers run UNIX/LINUX operating system.

What Is Linux?

Linux is an Open Source Unix-type operating system. A young student named Linus Torvalds at the
University of Helsinki in Finland initially created it as a hobby. Today, it has become quite popular
worldwide because of its functionality and availability. This is functionally very similar to UNIX, so most
web servers will use Linux.

 Linux is a very popular open source operating system today and several users run websites that
support PHP. Many really enjoy the open-source atmosphere and is the reason it continues to grow.

What Is Apache?

 The Apache HTTP Server is an open-source HTTP server for modern operating systems including
UNIX and Windows NT. Apache has been the most popular web server on the Internet since 1996
because of its reputation as a secure, efficient and extensible server, in sync with the current HTTP

What is the difference between Unix and NT systems ? by Maria

Shared or virtual hosting is usually available in two varieties: UNIX and NT. What is the difference
between hosting on these operating systems?

NT servers are designed to accommodate advanced Microsoft applications. NT servers therefore
integrate back office offerings such as FrontPage, Access and MS SQL with basic Web services. NT
servers also offer specific programming environments such as Active Server Pages (ASP), Visual
Basic Scripts, MS Index Server and Cold Fusion, which mainly link database applications to the Web.

NT servers do not provide an interactive shell, but are accessible through GUI-based remote
administration packages such as PCAnywhere. Such packages allow you to log into the server's
desktop as chief administrator as long as you have full control over your server.

We only recommend NT hosting if you intend to run your own dedicated server. The quality of hosting
degrades rapidly if the Web host attempts to run an NT server as a shared hosting system.

Since NT servers provide unparalleled levels of support, security and integration for the Microsoft
family of products, we recommend that you only select NT if you need to link a Microsoft-based service
to your Internet hosting requirements.

NT is rather complex and labor-intensive and should only be selected if the webmaster has extensive
experience in maintaining Windows systems remotely and requires product/Web integration.

A lot of hosting solutions are also provided on the UNIX platform. This is because the UNIX platform is
specifically designed to accommodate heavy Web traffic and server load. UNIX servers are robust and
are recognized for their ability to host multiple sites and serve out gigabytes of traffic.

This platform is also preferred by most webmasters due to their technical requirements. Most
webmasters outsource their e-commerce solutions, and therefore don't need to configure complex
database systems on their pay Web sites. UNIX servers also provide a wider degree of flexibility due to
their shell environment. Shell environments are interactive, text-based systems that allow webmasters
to interact and customize their services in real-time from any computer system worldwide. Unlike NT
systems, UNIX is not limited to special remote administration programs. A typical UNIX system can be
accessed from any computer connected to the Internet without special or expensive software.

But the most favored reason that most webmasters choose the UNIX platform is because of its uptime.
Most UNIX systems with heavy traffic can provide 99 per cent uptime. NT servers with heavy traffic
usually cannot make this same claim, unless specially configured. For this reason, average
webmasters should select UNIX as their OS.

If you don't know which platform you need, then most likely you do not require NT hosting and you
should select one of our UNIX hosting plans. The only time you would need to use NT hosting is when

you are using the specific NT applications noted above. Microsoft FrontPage may be used on both the
UNIX and NT platforms as since most hosting firms support the Microsoft FrontPage server extensions
on both.
