Nonetheless, a large proportion of servers also run Windows. Although Windows servers tend to be slightly more expensive due to the licenses required in order to run the operating system, its familiarity with end users is one major reason that makes it a popular choice.
One of the main points of familiarity is using the VPS as a Virtual Desktop, which appears practically identical to a Windows desktop on your home PC. By connecting to the server with a graphical user interface, you can take advantage of hosting infrastructure alongside the familiarity of the Windows environment. This is an obvious benefit to productivity for those that are familiar with the OS environment.
