VICTORIA, BC – FullHost, a leading Canadian web hosting provider, has today announced the availability to deploy Windows ready virtual servers and bare metal dedicated servers. The Windows servers are available through its cloud hosting platform at their data centers in Canada.

The latest Windows Server OS, Windows Server 2016 (Desktop Experience and Core) and 2012 R2 OS are available.

For ease of access, FullHost includes an administrator-level login, remote desktop access, which is a necessity for accessing the Windows server remotely, ensuring full control over the server and allowing the installation of applications and services through the remote desktop access.

Windows and UNIX are the two main types of operating systems (OS) in use for server hosting, the main variant of UNIX being called Linux, which is open source. While Linux can be very flexible, with the proprietary nature of Windows there are certain applications that will not run in a UNIX environment.

“While Linux is widely used, there is a strong demand for having Windows servers based fully in Canada,” says Chris Tilden, Director at FullHost. “Whether it is to do with personal preference or the need to run certain Windows applications like ASP, .NET, MSSQL, or Visual Basic we are very pleased to be offering our clients the choice to provision in both Linux or Windows.”
