Web Hosting Terms

Web Hosting Terms :

1.Web Hosting Space: 

    The amount of space you are allowed to store on your web hosting server is call Webhosting space. This is usually measured in GB (Gigabyte). 

Let me simplify GB for you:
The high-quality photo was taken from your iPhone or Android: Usually takes 1Mb-2MB 
1000 MB = 1 GB 

   This would give you an idea about how much space 1 GB offers. Usually, a simple blog post with 5-6 good quality images is not more than 4-5 MB (Extreme case). 

   For example, if you are uploading an image on your blog, which is of, size 1MB, it means you will be consuming 1MB of your web-space. Usually, this size is huge and you can host a huge number of files on your server. For hosting WordPress blogs, I recommend you to purchase hosting from that web hosting company, which offers unlimited hosting space.

2.Web Hosting Bandwidth:

    Another most commonly used term in web hosting is bandwidth. Bandwidth is the amount of data transfer allowed for your hosting. For example, if you upload an image of 1MB and one of your readers open that blog post, he will be consuming minimum 1MB of your bandwidth. Similarly, if 100 readers read the same post, your total bandwidth consumption will be 100MB. Usually, for a new WordPress site, I suggest you buy hosting from companies that offer either unlimited bandwidth or relatively high bandwidth usage (ex: 200Gb, 500GB).


   cPanel is a web hosting control panel which offers a graphical interface to manage your server. It’s because of cPanel that you will be able to manage your web hosting server without much technical skill. The graphical interface makes it easier to do various tasks like Installing WordPress, adding or deleting files, creating new FTP users and so on. cPanel is one of the standard control panels you will find in all the shared hosting. (Read about shared hosting below)

Here is an image that illustrates cPanel:
