Business Owners : Understanding Web hosting

If you are a business owner and you need to understand a little bit about webhosting for your business, you have come to the right place

In this tutorial we will explain What Web Hosting Is.

Web hosting is a service that allows business, organizations and individuals to post a website or web page on to the Internet. A web host, or web hosting service provider, is a business that provides the technologies and services needed for the website or webpage to be viewed in the Internet. If you don’t have a web host, your website will not be avalaible on the internet.

Websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called web servers.

When visitors want to view your business website, all they need to do is type your website address into their browser. Their computer will then connect to your web servers and your webpages will be delivered to them through the browser.

That’s all you need to know about web hosting for your business. Before you host a website , you need a domain name. We will cover it in the next tutorial.
