Web hosting is the process of renting or buying space to host a website on the World Wide Web. It involves uploading website content, such as HTML, CSS and images, to a server so that it can be viewed online. Hosting services provide customers with fast connection to the Internet and the right allocation of resources so that their website loads quickly and reliably for visitors. There are different types of hosting plans, such as shared hosting, VPS hosting, cloud hosting, business hosting and premium hosting.
Each plan offers different features and benefits depending on the size of the website and the number of visitors. The web host is responsible for ensuring that the server is up and running, as well as providing security for all files, assets and databases stored on the server.
