I don’t know anything about web design. What programs are compatable with Linux Web Hosting? What would you recommend? Do you know about any good templates compatable with Linux Web Hosting?

  1. You don’t need to really worry about linux webhosting vs. windows webhosting. That just relates to what the server’s using, but that really has no affect on you.

  2. Writing a website for Linux isn’t different than Windows if you’re doing straight HTML.

    The main difference is what kind of technology you can run on your host. .Net, Asp.Net, VB.net is Windows, PHP, Perl, Python is Linux (usually). If you’re not using any of those programming languages you don’t have to alter your code in any way shape or form.

    In other words, Dreamweaver is compatible with both Linux and Windows.

  3. As long as it is Perl or PHP, it should run on a Linux Host, Most linux hosts do not support ASP or JSP

    K Disk is an idiot. JSP definitely runs on linux, and ASP.NET works fine on Linux with Mono.

  5. it does not matter, K-Disk is spreading missinformation don’t listen to him.
    Make a site and it’ll run on either.

    Actually it’s true that many Linux hosts do not support ASP as they require additional server software. For instance http://www.onlineinstitute.com is good Linux host who supports all FTP-based web-publishing and Frontpage but not ASP, while http://www.publish247.com offers either Linux hosting without ASP, or Windows Hosting with ASP, so the best bet is to check with your Linux host about ASP and JSP if you plan to use those.

    But most website design software uses FTP, which Linux supports.

  7. Hi. This really is kind of an “non-traditional” question , but have some other website visitors asked you how have the menu bar to appear just like you have it? I also have a weblog and am really looking to transform around the theme, however I’m scared to death to wreck havoc on it for fear of the search engines punishing me. I am very not used to doing this …so i am just not positive the best way to try to to it all yet. I’ll just keep working on it one day at a time Thanks for any help you can offer here
