What Is Web Hosting

Web Hosting Explained

Web hosting is where you put your website so that it is accessible on the internet. Your website is stored on a server provided by your web host or a web hosting service. A domain name is the address that takes people to your website.

Web hosting is offered in packages and these packages refer to the amount of server space that your website can use. Think of it as paying rental for a shoplot. The domain name is your signboard, and the web hosting is your shoplot.
