What is Web Hosting? by RSH Web Services
A type of Internet Hosting Service. This allows individuals, organizations or businesses to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web
Web Hosting is the process of renting or buying space to house a website on the Internet. The content of a web-site's files and images has to be housed on a Web Server to be view-able online. When a website hosting provider allocates space for a website to store its files and images they are "Hosting a Website". And make these files available for viewing on the Internet 24-7, 365 days a year. Every website you’ve ever visited is stored or "Hosted" on some type of a Web Server
The different features and amount of space allocated to a website depends on the type of hosting. The main types of hosting are shared, dedicated, VPS and reseller. They are differentiated by the kind of technology used for the server, the level of management provided and the additional services that are offered
