What is Web Hosting?
You've probably heard this term many times but what does it really mean?
In simple terms, Web Hosting is the term given to a service provided by web hosting companies, who setup and maintain buildings called datacenters.
Datacenters are full of high-end computer systems called web servers which you get access to 24x7 via your internet connection.
When you buy a domain name and hosting, you rent a little piece of space on one of these servers for your website.
Your web hosting company maintains the web servers making sure your website is accessible 24x7 - 365 days/year.
