Hosting

What is Hosting?

Hosting, also known as Web-hosting or Web Hosting is basically where you host files on a Web-server, typically for the creation of a website.  Web Hosts are typically companies that host such files for their clients in Data Centres that can be accessed over the World Wide Web.  Web-hosting also includes other web-services such as email and domain names.

There is a vast scope of services that go with hosting, although for most, all that is really required is hosting for a private domain name, so the person can register a unique domain name for either hosting a website and/or for emails.

What is a Domain Name?

Web-servers and websites use IP addresses for identification on the internet.  These IP addresses are not very user friendly, hence why we use domain names.  A domain name can be used to locate a website, such as www.cyphus.com and also for unique email address, such as This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or even for other types of web-servers and services such as FTP and DNS.  If this subjects interests you then maybe do some more research on computer networking.
