What is Website Hosting?
Once we have created you a beautiful new website, it needs to have a home, somewhere for it to live and this is called hosting.
To host your website we will initially place it on one of our servers. If you think of your website as a piece of real estate, your hosting, or spot on the server, is your plot of land where you can build your house. When you build a house the larger the property you build the more land you will require, and it is the same for websites.
Big websites are often hosted across multiple servers in different locations and in some cases different countries. This means when you type in the address of a website your computer will retrieve information from a server that is closest to your computer which should mean the data is transferred faster and the website loads quickly.
