Web hosting service provided the platform for making your website live on the internet by uploading the data and updating the DNS records properly. It is the only medium which makes your website visible on the internet.

Web hosting service allows you to store the data securely. It also provided the backup facility for your data on the server. The backup is necessary when you will lost your website due to some disaster. Many web hosting services provides the email hosting service too which used to handle the emails associated with your domain. You can send, receive and store the emails on the server as well you can configure the email accounts on your local system too.

Many web hosting services has the integrated CMS like WordPress, Joomla which makes easy to design and develop the site. Those are very easy to use using which you can develop user friendly websites.

@Nitsujan5 give us a break. There is a wonderful website called Wikipedia, which answers questions like those. Threads like this depreciate the quality of the forum. Instead of making it an important community, they lowers it's level.

Web hosting is a service that allows a certain individual or group of people to post a website or web page in the internet. To access a certain website or webpage you just need to put the website address in any search engine. Hope you understand from this simple explanation.

Web hosting is the activity or service of providing storage space to individuals or organizations, for the websites that are accessible via World Wide Web. It is also defined as an internet hosting that enables businesses and individuals to make their online presence in the form of a website, accessible to the public via internet. It is consisted with a huge industry, with close to a billion websites currently online and millions of people all over the world getting into this new world. These are some examples of web hosting: shared web hosting wherein numerous sites are hosted on the same server. Second, Re-seller hosting where clients are allowed to be Web hosts themselves. Third, Dedicated hosting where the client/user gains full control of the server, but often does not actually own the hardware. And the Managed hosting wherein the user/client does not have full control, allowing the Web host to assure the quality of the service. The user may manage data using FTP or remote management tools.

Web hosting is generally the service of hosting a site on the Internet making it viewable for other users on the net.It is the business of housing, serving, and maintaining files for one or more Websites.It also allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web.The web host (often an internet service provider) maintains clients' websites on its computers and provides related services. These services may include leasing or in other words renting of hard disk space, maintenance of software and hardware, providing security and back up of files, credit card processing, email boxes, and high speed internet connection.Using a hosting service lets many companies share the cost of a fast Internet connection for serving files.

To make your website visible on the web, your website's files and data must be physically stored in a computer that is connected in the internet. The large high powered computers are called servers or data center. Web Hosting is just giving a space of data to let the costumers to have a website but they are not the owner of the data space that they are using. In layman's term, it is a renting.

What is web hosting?

Let's relate it to real-world terms. In the real world, you need a place to stay. That's your home. In cyberspace, as a web surfer, you are basically a nomad with nowhere to call a home. So if you want to make a place your home in cyber space, you need to have some place to put down your roots, so to speak.

This is where web hosting comes in. A web host, ie the company providing the web hosting, rents you a place in cyberspace to call your home. It can be a shared space, like shared hosting. Or a dedicated space, like a dedicated server. Each type of hosting has its pros and cons, which is another story altogether.

The only thing to remember about web hosting is that it doesn't work without a domain name. Just like having a plot of land in real life without an address. Nobody can find where your home is if you cannot tell them the address, right? Same with your home in cyber space. You have the web hosting and you need the domain name to tell people where your cyber home is.

Sir Aree, I think I will learn a lot from you. Now I understand the concept better of web hosting.

I am just curious. If we are renting a place in cyberspace from a "company providing the web hosting", who are those companies then? Can I be a web host provider too? Are they large companies like Google? or like Microsoft?

Web hosting is a service that allows organizations to post on website in the world wide web. It's a business that provides services for the website to be viewed in the internet. The website are being hosted or stored in servers. If customers or people wanna see your website they will just type your website address to their browser, from their computer it will connect to the server and the webpages will be delivered through the browser. It's very essential for businesses.

Web Hosting is simply a service or a platform that helps organization or companies put their website on the Internet. To put it simply, websites need storage of files. These files and stored on big computers called web servers. These web servers are owned by web hosting service provider. So in short, for you to be able to have storage of files for your website. You need to pay or rent for a specific space on web servers for your website to be live on the Internet.
So if customers access your website or they simply search the Internet, what really happens is that their computer will connect to the server using your web address. Then the web page will be sent to the User via browser.

I agree with you.. I am not also a technical person and what I can understand about Web Hosting, it's like a server where we can create our own website. Reading some of the forums, I really learned a lot and hoping to learn more so I can apply it to myself and create a website for my cupcake business :) Hopefully someone can teach me how? :)

I am also new in this kind of Information and its quite intriguing and sounds easy to understand but means a lot of things.
In my own understanding and if you put it on Layman's terms based on what I have known and understood -- Web hosting service makes your websites seen across the Universe! Just kidding, It can be seen in the Online World like the World Wide Web in technical terms.

Web hosting is a service where you can host your website or webpage on the internet, so that every individual can view and interact with your website through internet. You have to buy the domain name and do its registration.

Hosting can be labelled as Home of a website. If you have a website, you’ll need to host it somewhere. Imagine you have a hell lot of cash and gold. And you want to keep it safe. SO it’s obvious that most of us would keep these precious possessions in a safe of a bank.
Hosting is something like that. Your website is hosted in a server that is owned and maintained by someone else. There are different kinds of hosting depending on the nature of hosting, server type, price etc., be it Shared Hosting, Dedicated Hosting, VPS Hosting, Cloud Hosting, Reseller Hosting.
