What is Web Hosting?

Web hosting is the service of providing space on the web for your website.

When you have that perfect Website and you want to share it with people around the world, you need to store it somewhere online.   That is where a Web Hosting Service comes in. 

Once you have setup an account with your preferred Web Hosting Provider, you will be given a location to store your new website on a fast and reliable platform.  You are then able to publish your website files onto the storage you have been provided. When this is completed, if someone types your web address in a search bar they will be directed to your Web Hosting Provider, who’s servers will then provider the person with your website.

The benefit of working with a Web Hosting Provider is that anything related to managing the servers that your website resides on will be looked after by your provider.
