The Sheep has been busy again, researching snippets of information you may find useful. Have you ever sat down and pondered to yourself “What Is Web Hosting?” Well hopefully we have explained it to your satisfaction in the article below:
Web hosting is a service that allows organisations and individuals to post a website or web page on to the Internet. A web host, or web hosting service provider, is a business that provides the technologies and services needed for the website or web page to be viewed in the Internet. Websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called servers.
When Internet users want to view your website, all they need to do is type your website address into their browser. Their computer will then connect to your server and your webpages will be delivered to them through the browser.
Most hosting companies require that you own your domain name in order to host with them. If you do not have a domain name, the hosting companies will help you purchase one. Here at Busy Sheep, we tend to stick with just a couple of hosting companies, and have no hesitation in recommending GoDaddy ,123-Reg or Viking Hosting. You can find out more about anyone of our recommendations by clicking on the name of the service.
