When you need to build a website and put it in the internet to be available 24x7 and with a great speed, you search for a web hosting. There are lots of hosting providers offering packages from $0.01 and up, but you must be sure the one you go with is reliable enough and won't disappear shortly. So, before signing up, do a short investigation - a good start is to check customer reviews about your company on TrustPilot and you'll get an image how they perform.

Simply put, these are the components to web hosting:
Domain (name of your website url) + hosting on a server (web hosting typically stars with shared hosting) + control panel + other applications you want to host.

A website needs 3 main important things to be online.
  1. Domain - An unique name to recognise your brand
  2. URL - Address pointing to your website
  3. Web hosting space - The place where all website data is stored.
There are many web hosting providers who provide hosting services.

Web hosting is the place where all the files of your website live. It is like the home of your website where it actually lives.

Web hosting is a service that allows organizations and individuals to post a website or web page onto the Internet. A web host, or web hosting service provider, is a business that provides the technologies and services needed for the website or webpage to be viewed in the Internet. Websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called servers.

If you want to host your own website, there will be many choices that you will have to take. One of the utmost vital pronouncements will be to choose a web hosting solution for your website. This is a very significant decision as it can affect the way your website performs. All the efforts that you put on the design of the site can go to waste if you do not select the right web hosting solution to host your website.

Today, if you look around the internet you can find lots and lots of web hosts. So much so that you may not know which web host to select. It is imperative to make a right choice while choosing a web host as many factors need to be taken into account. It is vital to make a right choice right from the start since it is very hard to move from one web host to another. As moving from one web host to another may require a major amount of effort and a significant amount of money as well.

When picking a web host one of the most vital features that you must look at is customer support. Customer support can protect you from a lot of worry and possibly some money as well. Customer support enables you to report a problem, or ask for help each and every time you need it, that is why it is an important feature to have. If likely, try to ensure that your web host has 24/7 customer support. 24/7 customer support is needed as a problem may occur anytime, though you need to be careful to ensure that your web host does indeed provide 24/7 customer support. You can check if your web host has 24/7 customer support by calling their customer support a few times to test them.

I read your post. you do not get sad, now your solution will be found. as far as, my experience is concerned.

Hosting is termed as space or territory that you purchase on a web server to save or store your site documents. Whenever you are buying a hosting, it merely means you are purchasing space on the webserver to store your files or site documents. You can undoubtedly structure a website on your system, but if you will not upload it on a hosting server, it’s not possible to get it accessible by anyone. It can also be defined as a service that lets the individuals post webpage or website online.

There are various web hosting service providers that give the facilities for the web pages or websites to be displayed on the internet. These web pages or websites are reserved in a place that is called servers. If you are looking to purchase the best yet cheap Web hosting for your website, then there are various Web hosting companies that provide different types of web hosting. Let’s move further to discuss it in detail.


If you do not understand this, then ask me for more information. There was a lot of help.

So I'm just new here. I've been seeing a lot of posts about Web Hosting and would like to know what it is. So I can answer some of you're questions in the future.

Simply webhosting means to make your website live on internet.

For that you need to purchase a server space with good bandwidth and a domain name so that you can upload your website pages to that server space to make it accessible from anywhere through internet.

You already got too much response to this unexpected question. Someone suggested Wikipedia which I think is a great idea to get started. You gotta be an expert to answer most of the questions here. If you don't know about hosting then its the last place for you to spend time answering questions rather than asking. But only the questions you cannot find answers to, and by that I mean some sort of advice about hosting and servers and other stuff rather than asking about hosting itself. Please take a look at the following link and avoid starting these kinds of threads.
No hard feelings :)
