How to choose the correct Operating System?

Windows and Unix systems are very different. There is a huge amount of software that can work on one and not the other, so you have to be careful when choosing what environment is best. Some of the most important things you have to consider when choosing an operating system for your server is software you plan to use and if it’s compatible, programming language website is using, database type that will be used. Control panel preference is also a limiting factor for the operating system your server will use.

A person that wants to use Plesk panel can choose a number of operating systems to work with. Some of these include:

  • Windows Server 2008 SP2
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
  • Windows Server 2012
  • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Debian 6 or 7
  • Ubuntu 10.04, 12.04 and 14.04
  • CentOS 5.1-5.11, 6.0-6.7 and 7
  • Cloud Linux 5.1-5.11 and 6.4-6.5

 

The option to have Plesk a number of different OS gives it great flexibility compared to cPanel/WHM which can only work on Unix Distros, these include:

  • CentOS 6 or 7
  • Cloudlinux 6 or7
  • Red Hat 6 or 7
  • Amazon Linux

These are currently the only operating systems that support cpanel.
