What is hosting?

Web hosting explained.


Hosting, or more formally web hosting, refers to the practice of providing internet hosting services by housing and offering follow up services and maintenance to individuals and organisations hosting their website with a web hosting service provider.

Those hosting the service usually allocate part of a server, a server, or a group of server to a customer to ensure that a website is available on the internet by providing internet connectivity.
