what is the port and does it have same value every time???
In the previous video of "upload the website" Nick changed the port value to 18765. So how to find out the port value for other websites that we want to host???
From my experience in most cases hosting services generally use the default ports, if you are given a port other than the default that port number should always be used instead. This usually occurs because of conflicts with other services that are also using the default port, or to separate traffic from that port for system administration purposes. I have run into this situation in a local environment in the past when setting up a local development environment using xampp, which had a conflict on port 80 (the default http protocol port) that occurred because Skype was also running an also using that port number.
