UNIX and Windows are both stable hosting platforms. One may perform better than other in some aspects, but both remain popular web hosting servers.

I use to work for Network Solutions and we would get that question a lot from customers. We always recommended UNIX servers for stability, but I'm sure Windows is just as good these days. Although if you talk to some people in the web hosting management field, they'll still swear by UNIX servers.

The difference, Unix hosting is better than Windows hosting... At least that's what I've heard from most of my colleagues...:)

Unix and windows both are different. Unix has more secure and also very difficult to learn in comparison to windows and Unix hosting services are more expensive than windows hosting.

Unix and Windows are two different types of hosting. Unix is the most popular hosting system for web servers. Since Unix-based hosting is more popular, it has more of the features web designers expect. So unless you have websites which need specific Windows applications, Unix is the preferred choice.
