What Is Web Hosting ?

Data Center

A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to provide their own websites accessible via the World Wide Web. Web hosts are companies that provide space on a server they own for use by their clients as well as providing Internet connectivity, typically in a data center. Webhosts can also provide data center space and connectivity to the Internet for servers they do not own to be located in their data center, called colocation.

Providing more value and savings ...

Simply put, one needs to publish a website (complete with all its component files) into a web server running on a host computer. Typically, this required host computer is a dedicated machine optimally running at top performace and capacity all the time, performing web server services for your website. Its continuous inter-connection with the Internet (at the appropriate data transfer and capcity rates called bandwidth) makes it possible for the published website to become likewise continuosly and concurrently accessible from all points and nodes of the Internet.

Since maintaining such a host computer with the right bandwidth all time entails real infrastucture investment with additional monthly recurring Internet connectivity and maintenance costs just for an individual website owner, commercial web hosting became a practical and cost-effective solution. It enabled dedicated host computers to independently share its resources between multiple websites hosted on the same machine based on optimal load balancing algorithms. This translates to efficient distribution of cost resulting into greatly reduced cost of maintenance per websited hosted.
