For anyone looking into buying web hosting it is first a good idea to actually know what it is. In simple terms, web hosting is a service given to either organizations or individuals so they can host their websites on the world wide web.
The internet, or world wide web is made up of literally hundreds of thousands of websites, all hosted on computers called web servers around the world.
The source of each website, which is saved on a web server maintained by an internet service provider, enables people to view the website online when the relevant url is typed in.
This data stored on the web server also has to be maintained and kept undated and this can be done in two ways.
Firstly the user has his or her own web server and has full administrative rights over the website and can make changes and add content whenever they wish at their own leisure.
The other alternative is to give full administrative rights to the web host who will execute any changes you require when necessary. This method will involve you contacting the administrator and advising them on any content change you want to make.
Problems may occur with your website so it is important that the web hosting company that you choose offer 24/7 technical support so these can be rectified as quickly as possible.
If you have a personal website or blog then look around on the internet as there are various free hosting sites available. For businesses though it is necessary to pay for web hosting with added features to enhance your site.
It is well worth shopping around and comparing what web hosting companies are offering to attract your custom and take advantage of free offers and features.
