What is Web Hosting

When a person wants to take a photo of something, they need to use a camera. When you want to watch a tv show you need to have a tv or a computer of some kind to watch it on. If you do not have the proper device, you can not take a photo or watch tv.

Every thing has to have something to make it work. A car needs to have gas and an engine for example or it will not work.

Web hosting allows a person to have their webpage or website to be up on the internet. Without it, there would be no internet.

Web hosting is done by companies that offer their service to people to have their webpages seen on the internet. There are many many different types of hosting sites. Some are very expensive, while others are not very expensive at all.

It is possible to set up your own computer to host your webpage or website, but it is very complicated and most people prefer the easier route of signing up with a hosting company like go daddy or some other popular company.

There are many different types of web host companies. Complicated webpages may require a web hosting company that can handle such things as CGI or PHP scripts. This service is not available to all web hosting companies.

It is not easy to find a web hosting company that offers free hosting.

Shared hosting is the most famous of all hosting. Here you have your website or webpage on a hosting with many other people who are also using the same server.

Free hosting companies could put advertising that they want on to your webpage, but shared hosting will not.

In order to use a hosting you will need to set up a domain name. You can often times register that domain name with the same company that you have your web page set up on.

Basically you are renting space on the web hosting computer in order to have your webpage or website to be on the internet.

When you are looking for a hosting company, make sure that the content you are going to be having displayed through it is content that they will accept.

Not all hosting companies accept the same content. It is your job to check their rules before joining a hosting company.

Many hosting companies have different plans that you can sign up for. Some offer six month plans, while others offer two or more year subscription services.
