IS it possible to host php application like wordpress blog in a windows 2008/2003 server hosting environment.

In the same note can we use .net based website/application or .asp/.jsp pages in a linux hosting?

Running PHP on Windows is not a problem, PHP is cross-platform, as are other common free-software programs such as MySQL or Apache. Most hosting companies offering Windows servers have PHP installed by default.

For .NET on Linux, you should check out the Mono Project [mono-project.com] - however, .NET is designed to function primarily on Windows servers only and Mono is unlikely to be installed by default by hosting companies. You would have to install it yourself, or use a dedicated server - it is usually much easier to stick to a Windows server environment in this case.

Thank you for replying to this. So as I understand that if I go for a Windows server php and MySQL can be installed and thus I can use wordpress on it.

Secondly by defklt the Windows server will support .Net so I can also run .net based application and asp and jsp pages...

Please correct me if I am wrong in my understanding.
