Web Hosting Ideas...

Hello Readers, 

Today I am going to post some basic Ideas regarding the Web Hosting Concepts:

1) What is Webhost Manager? (WHM)

Webhost manager (WHM) is a web-based tool used by server administrators and resellers to
manage hosting accounts on a web server. WHM listens on ports 2086 and 2087 by default.

2) What is cPanel?

cPanel is a Unix based web hosting control panel that provides a graphical interface and
automation tools designed to simplify the process of hosting a web sites. cPanel utilizes a 3 tier
structure that provides functionality for administrators, resellers, and end-user website owners
to control the various aspects of website and server administration through a standard web
browser. cPanel listens on ports 2082 and 2083 by default.

3) What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is a word along with a TLD that uniquely identifies your website.

4) What is Web Hosting?

Web hosting is the act of renting space and bandwidth through a company so that you may
publish your web site online.

5) What is uptime?

Uptime is the percentage of time that a web site is working. For example, if some host has an
uptime average of 99.86% this means that your site will be down for a total about 1 hour each
month, we monitor uptime of customer websites of many web hosts and we display this data on
the host’s details page. Some hosts also offer “uptime guarantees” but this is not as valuable as
it might appear.

6) What is difference between UNIX hosting and Windows hosting?

If you need to support Microsoft products such as ASP, MS Access, or VBScript then Windows
hosting would be better. Furthermore if you are comfortable with IIS and do not have the time
to understand how UNIX works, Windows hosting would again be a better choice.

7) What is domain parking?

Domain parking lets you cheaply reserve a domain name for future use and display and “under
construction” default page on it. You can register a domain and not part it anywhere but then
your site will simply be inaccessible until you get a web host. Some register let you park your
domain for free.

8) What are sub-domains?

Consider subdomain as an extension of your domain. For example your site is A sub-domain would be and another would be

Subdomain are usually treated as separate sites from the main domain site.

9) Why would I need a dedicated IP?

For most people, a dedicated IP is not required. But for people that want to provide anonymous

FTP or a website using SSL, a dedicated IP can make that easier.

10) What is MySQL, MS SQL?

MySQL and MS SQL are database system. Depending on what your host provides you can use a
database to organize your data. To help you out, we have lists on hosts that provide MySQL and
hosts that provide MS SQL. (MySQL port no 3306 & MS SQL port no 1433)
