What is Web Hosting? And Why Web Hosting is important?
So basically for those who don’t know about web hosting, here’s a brief description- When you create a website, you essentially create a bunch of different files.
These files need to be stored somewhere to be accessible on the Internet. You pay a hosting provider to “host” these files for you on one of their servers. This is the monthly fee that you’ll pay to a hosting company.
When you host your files on a hosting company’s web server they’re available 24/7, so your website will always be accessible on the web.
Your web host is also responsible for things like server maintenance, keeping the software and hardware up to date, troubleshooting, and more.
