since this is ur first time u have used Linux i would not suggest starting a web server your self just yet. i would suggest finding an online web host then start Googling how to set up secure authentication with https and integrating that with your site. just as a foot note it dose not matter weather u use windows, freeBSD , linux, unix or os 2 they will all allow the use of usage of the HTTPS protocol. i don't think i explain this very well so here is a link to a site that might help

as far as your poll goes, linux and windows are apples and oranges. None is better than the other. They both have their strengths.


linux, step, win, windows
