What is Web Hosting?
Posted by Alpha Daramy on 17 January 2008 06:11 PM

The World Wide Web is a huge collection of web sites that are hosted on computers (called web servers) all over the world. The companies that offer to host web sites on their servers are called web hosts. Web hosting is the act of renting space and bandwidth through a company (host) so that you may publish your web site online.

Free web hosting is usually supported with banner ads and pop ups that are forced on to your web site by web hosts, while paid web hosting gives you complete control over your site contents.
