What is Web Hosting?

Web Hosting is the service providing space on the Internet for websites.

When you make a website and want other people to see it, you will need to publish (or upload) it with a web hosting service.

Web hosting services work by storing your website files in high-powered computers (web servers) connected to a very fast network. When someone types in your web address (such as www.x3host.com), the Internet connects to the web server holding your website files and then transfers your website information back to their computer. From there they can surf and view the pages of your website.

 

Domain Names

Before we jump into the different types of web hosting, it’s important to remember you have to have a domain name so your website can be found on the Internet. The domain name is essentially your company’s Internet address; the same way your company’s street address is used to find your offices, a domain name is used to find your website. Considering this, pick a domain name that’s memorable and relevant!

Since domains are so simple, buying them is too. Nowadays, you can get a domain for just $0.99/year! Many of webhosting companines gave a free domain name, and makes it easier to link the domain name and the website to it's servers.
