Website hosting refers to the process of storing and serving website files and data on a server, which is a computer that is connected to the internet and is accessible to users worldwide. When someone wants to view your website, their web browser sends a request to the server hosting your website. The server then sends the website files back to the user’s browser, which displays the website on their device.
Website hosting companies offer various types of hosting plans, including shared hosting, virtual private server (VPS) hosting, dedicated hosting, and cloud hosting. Each type of hosting has its own advantages and disadvantages, and the choice of hosting plan depends on the needs of the website owner, the size and complexity of the website, and the amount of traffic it receives.
