We have chosen Linux that is the most widely used server technology to host our websites and web applications.
And of it’s a natural choice because we built applications based on PHP and MySQL. A company that use ASP would naturally go with a Microsoft server (IIS for example). But most PHP based applications use Linux as a server, since it’s more affordable (Linux is free) and has proven over the years its reliability.
Some example of our products can be seen on: yougapi.com/demo
Of course today we can host PHP on Microsoft server, but it’s more costy and we are not sure if the MySQL database plateform can be hosted on a Microsoft server.
This is our first post on Linux.edu and hope to come back to you soon with other articles talking about some technologies or programming techniques we are working on.
