What is Web Hosting

Data Center ServersIf you are wondering what is web hosting then, here’s my explanation…

Web hosting refers to some kind of storage space specifically allocated for your domain name (your website) on a computer (aka server) that will serve the information on the World Wide Web also known as the Internet. This is where all the website files (web pages) that make up your web site can be found.

As a domain owner, you can lease this server storage space from them.
