Windows Server 2016 – latest operating system for Windows web hosting now available
Anyone with a need for special Windows applications for their home page is likely to choose a Windows-based hosting package. If this scenario applies to you, look forward to an improved performance of this hosting package!
The new operating system has been updated to the latest version of Windows Server 2016, which enables better utilization of the server hardware. Furthermore, your online projects can now benefit from the latest versions of ASP.NET 4.6 and MS SQL 2016, the relational database management system from Microsoft. Thanks to Full-Trust, popular web applications such as DotNetNuke run smoothly. Users also have the option to run PHP 7.1 and MySQL on Windows.
Much has happened in regards to homepage security: thanks to 1&1 DDoS Protection, your site is secured against hacking and DDoS attacks. In addition, Symantec’s free SSL certificate encrypts confidential data from unidentified third-party access. Hardware platform updates ensure improved website performance and as usual, your website is protected from failure by two geo-redundant data centers.
Wondering which operating system is best for you? For PHP, MySQL or Perl with different software programs only, Linux is the best choice – 70% of all web servers worldwide run on this operating system. However, if you want to integrate Windows applications such as the ASP.NET web application framework into your website, or use MS SQL, there are crucial advantages to Windows hosting. These applications are fully compatible with Windows, which not only allows for better application function, but also shorter development time. This allows you to develop and publish Microsoft’s current Visual Studio web applications and services from scratch or with the help of templates.
