The Web Hosting Calculator serves as a guide to help non-technical people understand the basics of web hosting and what's necessary to ensure their website is provided the best possible hosting environment. For the most part, the calculator does not make suggestions as to the actual hosting provider, but rather the resources required to effectively host your site, including:
- Port Speed
- Operating System
- Type of Account (Shared, VPS, Dedicated)
Most hosting providers offer a variety of configuration options, but typically do not offer advice as to which options are best given your website.
What does "Any" mean?
When a value of "Any" is provided for one of the recommendations, that doesn't necessarily mean that any amount will suffice. It usually means that you haven't provided enough information (answered enough questions) to come to a conclusion.
