website hostingWhat is Website Hosting?

A website hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web. Web hosts are companies that provide space on a server owned or leased for use by clients, as well as providing Internet connectivity, typically in a data center. Web hosts can also provide data center space and connectivity to the Internet for other servers located in their data center, called colocation.  A “Hosting Fee” is a fee you pay to lease the space on a hosting server.

The scope of web hosting services varies greatly. The most basic is web page and small-scale file hosting, where files can be uploaded via File Transfer Protocol (FTP) or a Web interface. The files are usually delivered to the Web “as is” or with minimal processing.

Single page hosting is generally sufficient for personal web pages. A complex site calls for a more comprehensive package that provides database support and application development platforms (e.g. PHP, Java, ASP.NET, etc… ). These facilities allow customers to write or install scripts for applications like forums, blogs and content management. Also, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is used for encryption and is typically required for e-commerce.

The level of hosting that your site requires wil depend on what types of traffic/bandwidth you require and also what features your website may need to employ (databases, SSL, etc..)
