A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web. Web hosts are companies that provide space on a server owned or leased for use by clients, as well as providing Internet connectivity, typically in a data center. Web hosts can also provide data center space and connectivity to the Internet for other servers located in their data center, called colocation, also known as Housing in Latin America or France.
For newbies, you can understand simply like this. Your house needs an address (domain name) for someone to find out you and a place (web hosting) to build it.
Got it? yes web hosting is a place to store all your website data on the internet which allows everyone (visitors) can find out it via a domain name.
Such a common question. You'll see an article on the topic on our blog soon, but essentially: hosting provides a physical place where all of your site's files and data will be stored.
Without it, your website cannot exist online. A domain name is merely an address which users can type into their browser in order to find you.
