    Question How to tell if Unix or Windows NT

    I have a couple of hosting accounts with GoDaddy.com.

    I was wondering how I could find out if these are being hosted on Unix boxes or Windows NT boxes.

    Anyone know how I can find this out ?

    Thanks,
    Stephen.

    They are UNIX by default.

    To get windows hosting, you must purchase a Deluxe with CGI or ASP account, and choose it.

    Very easy way to find out. Check out http://netcraft.com. They will tell you not only what o/s a site is hosted with but a lot of information about the server, including its uptime.

    *tongue-in-cheek*

    Err, one way is if your machine is either down a lot or constantly infected with virii - than it is a windows machine.
