It really depends on the web development technologies the website you’re planning to host on the reseller hosting plan is built on. If the website was/is developed using the LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) then of course you need a reseller hosting plan running on a Linux server and as such a Linux reseller hosting plan will be ideal. Linux server based reseller hosting plans support programming technologies such as PHP 5, Python, Perl, CGI, Django, etc. as well as MySQL and PostgreSQL databases.
On the other hand, if you’re using Microsoft web development technologies such as ASP.NET, Classic ASP, ASP.NET MVC, Microsoft SQL Server or Microsoft Access database, ASP.NET MVC, you definitely need a reseller hosting plan hosted on a Windows server.
However, it’s worth noting that although reseller hosting plans on Linux server does not support common Microsoft technologies such as .NET, ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC, Classic ASP. The same is not the case vice versa. To that effect, reseller hosting plans on Windows server does support technologies such as PHP, MySQL, Perl, etc. As such the case can be made that our Windows reseller hosting plans provide more support for different types of web development technologies.
For example, if you’re using Content Management Systems (CMS) such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, etc. which are developed with PHP programing language, you can in fact run such CMS applications either a Windows or Linux server based website hosting plan since both plan types support PHP and MySQL (which are the core technologies behind most open source CMS applications.
