This will be my first web host and I”m learning as I go.
I know Linux is more secure and stable than Windows. But I’m familiar with Windows since I use XP. I’ve dabbled in Linux in the past but my understanding of it is tiny compared to Windows.
Which one should I choose? Or does it not really matter?
Definitely choose Linux. It is by far the most stable for a host. You can use tools like PHP, MySQL, and other great opensource languages. With windows server you are usually stuck with ASP for your server side language.
I have used many different hosts (including setting my own up), and I always come back to linux because there is soo much more control
