What is Web Hosting?
Web hosting is a service that allows organizations and individuals to post a website or web page onto the Internet. A web host, service provider, is a business that provides the technologies and services needed for the website or webpage to be viewed in the Internet. Websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called servers.
When Internet users want to view your website, all they need to do is type your website address or domain into their browser. Their computer will then connect to your server and your webpages will be delivered to them through the browser.
What kind of hosting do I need?
This depends largely on what type of website you have, how big it is, what your needs are, and more. If you’re using a web platform like Shopify or Squarespace, then your website is automatically hosted with that company.
On the other hand, sites built on WordPress or Magento are self-hosted, meaning you need to find server space to put them on. Think of it as renting a piece of property on the internet.
The prices and capabilities of servers and host providers can vary dramatically. As we mentioned before, it depends on what you need. It’s worth noting you may see webhosting packages that are really cheap, but you should know these are generally very limited.
For example, cheaper hosting packages often limit the number of people who can view your website. So let’s say your limit is 25 devices that can simultaneously be viewing your website. If a 26th person comes along and tries to go to it, the site won’t load for them. If a lot of people try to go to your website all at once, the site as a whole could crash.
In other words, when it comes to hosting, you often get what you pay for.
