What is Web Hosting?

Web hosting is a service that allows businesses and individuals to have a website or web pages onto the Internet. A web hosting service provider, or web host, is a organisation that provides the web hosting know how and services needed for the website or webpage to be viewed in the Internet. Websites are hosted on special computers called web servers.

When you want to view your website on the internet, all you need to do is type your website address or domain name into your browser. Your computer will then connect to your server and your webpages will be delivered to you through the browser.

If you do not have a domain name registered, your hosting company will help you to register one.

When you decide to create and host a website with you can register a domain name, email addresses, and web hosting all bundled into one web hosting package.
