What is Hosting
In a nutshell, web hosting is the process of housing a website on the World Wide Web. Website content such as HTML, CSS, database files and images has to be housed on a server to be viewable online.
When internet users want to view your website, all they need to do is type your website address aka the domain into their browser. Their computer will then connect to the web-server and your web-pages will be delivered to them seemlessly!
So hosting is the provision of a web-server1, basically a powerful computer that connects users to your site. Web hosting service providers have these servers, connectivity, and associated services to host websites. By offering a variety of plans, they cover the spectrum of hosting needs – managing the connection from your domain to the hosted server.
What do I need?
If you’re planning on creating an online presence, reliable web hosting is key. There are literally hundreds of web hosts available today providing thousands of varieties of web hosting services. Plans range from free to expensive dedicated servers & services. The plan you choose will depend primarily on how you plan to use your website and how much you have budgeted for hosting.
Choosing the right hosting will mean having access to the right allocation of resources to keep your website loading quickly and reliably for your visitors.
Did you know that Amazon calculated that a page slow to load, just by one second could cost them $1.6 billion in sales each year!2
