I have another question. I am currently on Linux Hosting in what way is it better or not than Windows hosting?
If you are going to host ASP websites then you have to host your website on windows hosting. Linux in my opinion is far more superior than windows aswell as the control panel, cpanel is far easier to use than websitepanel or plesk on windows.

Other than that their are more addons and features that are available on linux hosting. One very good example is Websitebuilders, there are far more available for linux whereas from what I've seen only 1 real good one for Windows which is the plesk version.

So in basic terms always go linux (cpanel) unless you are hosting an ASP or ASP.NET site.
Thanks - makes sense
