What is Web Hosting ?




Every website needs a home where to live (web hosting) and an address where it could be found (domain).
Web hosting companies provide resources and space on their private or leased servers that are placed in a data center connected to a very fast network to store information or a client's web site.
When the web address is typed the computer connects to the server that hosts the web site and you can view and surf through the web site.
One type of web hosting is the shared hosting, it's the cheapest solution and it comes with everything you need for a small and medium site.
The disadvantage of this type of hosting is that the resources of a server are shared with all the other sites hosted on that, and in rush hours it could slow down the access speed of the site.
