NT and UNIX Web Hosting

Last Updated: Tue, 28 Jun 2016 > Related Articles

Summary

Both NT and UNIX web hosting services are available through Cox Business Service. Find details and decide which is right for you.

Solution

Cox Business Services provides both NT and UNIX hosting services.
 
NT servers accommodate advanced Microsoft applications. Examples of applications that require an NT server to operate include MS Front-Page 2000, MS Access or MS SQL database applets, Active Server Pages, Visual Basic Scripts and Cold Fusion.
 
UNIX servers are standard open source code and are rated the most popular option by most webmasters.

Typically most complex websites are hosted on UNIX servers because of their reliability and functionality. However, if you are not sure which platform to choose, the NT platform is the best option. Talk to your web designer before making a selection.
 
Both platforms come with intuitive website management, in the form of a web-based customer Control Panel. The operating system of your web server is not related to the operating system of your personal computer and you can pick from both platforms, regardless of what operating system your computer is running.
