I am a web programmer and am fluent in site construction and etc. I am planning to register and use a domian name on a server hosted by another company. Is it necessary for me to learn Unix (I have no Unix experience) to operate with another server?


If you plan to remotely administer your files on a web server that is UNIX based, then learning to use the UNIX shell is very important. The shell is the environment in which you work, including moving files, editing files, etc. Having a strong knowledge of the environment you work in is highly recommended.
