If you are a beginner, we highly recommend to read the first two parts of this WordPress Tutorial Series – What is WordPress and How it Works and Finding a Suitable Web Host or Server. In this WordPress Tutorial Series, we will never recommend or make you to buy any specific product from a specific brand. It is you, how have to decide by building an idea yourself by reading these topics on WordPress Tutorial.
WordPress Tutorial to understand type of Server
We have dedicated articles on Web Hosting and Cloud Computing, but pointing you towards those articles, taking that you are a starter – its just to make you confused. First and foremost important is to have a domain name – like ours – thecustomizewindows.com
As we have said in the WordPress Tutorial Finding a Suitable Web Host or Server ; there can be three situations in front of you from the kind of server aspect :
Situation 1 : You have opted for a blank server, usually a Cloud Server at the cheapest rate – that is about $ 10 / month.
Situation 2 : You have opted for a server with cPanel or Plesk.
Situation 3 : You have opted for a server with proprietary Control Panel.
Some of the new users have the wrong idea, which is apparent from various comments – You can never see or access the desktop GUI in any kind of Server those will be used for our WordPress Tutorial series. The only way to install core softwares on your server computer is to use the Unix Commands through a Terminal like Console – for that you must need root access. However, you can work without root access too. But the ideal choice as we have said ago, is to start with a blank cloud server if you are limited by budget. The advantages are :
- Unlike a $3/month shared server, you have a dedicated IP.
- Unlike a $3/month shared server, you have the root access, you can install any software on the server, choice the OS, increase or decrease the RAM and Bandwith.
- You will have good uptime – around 99.9%. 100% uptime is never possible for a website in real as there are many complex things are involved when we open a website – its not the server that only determines whether the server is accessible or not.
Never use a dedicated server right now. Its a fool’s deal for a general user now. For a secured server, server colocation is a better option over dedicated server.
