Throughout most of the 1990's, tech pundits, largely unaware of Linux's potential, dismissed it as a computer hobbyist project, unsuitable for the general public's computing needs. Through the efforts of developers of desktop management systems such as KDE and GNOME, office suite project OpenOffice.org and the Mozilla web browser project, to name only a few, there are now a wide range of applications that run on Linux and it can be used by anyone regardless of his/her knowledge of computers. Those curious to see the capabilities of Linux can download a live CD version called Knoppix . It comes with everything you might need to carry out day-to-day tasks on the computer and it needs no installation. It will run from a CD in a computer capable of booting from the CD drive. Those choosing to continue using Linux can find a variety of versions or "distributions" of Linux that are easy to install, configure and use. Information on these products is available in our distribution section and can be found by selecting the mainstream/general public category.

The first decision to make is whether you want a Linux or Windows operating system to run on your dedicated server. Most hosts give you a choice while some specialize in one or the other. Which one is right for you depends on what kind of languages or databases you plan on using. If you’re still unsure, we like to say there’s a 99.9% chance you should go with a Linux dedicated server.
Dedicated web servers are for those who want all the power to themselves without having to share any of it with other users and their customers. Dedicated hosting, as opposed to shared hosting, is a hosting solution that's all yours. In a shared hosting environment, you share a server's resources with other users with running on their own virtual servers and sharing the hardware resources. With a dedicated solution, you get your own Linux dedicated server with all of its resources to use as you please for your website. That means all the bandwidth, RAM, CPU, and data transfer are all yours. Essentially you're renting a complete server from us.
