What is Hosting a Website?

Web hosting is an essential service that allows companies and individuals to post a website or web page onto the Internet. A web host or web hosting service provider, is a business that provides the technologies and services needed for the website or webpage to be viewed in the Internet. Websites are hosted or stored, on special     computers which are known as Servers.

When any user comes to your website, all they need to do is type your website address or domain into their browser. Their computer will then connect to your server and your webpages will be delivered to them through the browser.

Most hosting companies wants to host your domain with them. If you do not have a domain, the hosting companies will help you purchase one.
