The business of providing the equipment and services
required to host and maintain files for one or
more Web sites and to provide fast Internet connections
to those sites. Most hosting is "shared,"
which means that Web sites of multiple companies
are on the same server in order to share costs.
How does it work?
hosting allows your Web site to be connected to
the Internet at high speed via a Web server so
its information can be viewed globally through
a browser. Metaphorically speaking, renting space
on a server is comparable to renting an apartment.
For a monthly fee, you reside in that apartment
and all maintenance is the responsibility of the
property. You also have access to certain amenities
that would otherwise be a costly investment. A
Web hosting company houses your Web site on its
own secure servers, enabling you to affordably
leverage the power of a high-speed network, 24/7
expert monitoring and support, and state-of-the-art
