What is web hosting?

Posted by kilbot | Filed under: Frequently Asked Questions, Hosting FAQ

A web host provides the hardware and services necessary for making your site available on the internet. This service is separate to domain registration, a domain name merely provides a pointer to your host server, for more information on domain registration please see “What is a domain?”.

A host will generally provide the following:

  • Storage space for your website and email.
  • Bandwidth for transferring data to and from the server.
  • Technical support.
  • Server software and security.
  • Ongoing hardware maintenance and upgrades.

The quality of these services naturally varies from web host to web host. For information on our hosting packages and support please visit our Hosting page.
