What is Website Hosting?
Put simply, a web hosting package is a place to store your website. Your hosting server stores your HTML files, images, PHP files, PDF files, etc and allows other people with access to the internet to access your files and read your website.
At it’s basic level, a web host is simply a computer server with a high speed Internet connection.
It’s like owning a bricks and mortar shop and renting a space in a shopping mall, or to take it to the most basic level, paying for your pitch at a market or a boot fair so you can display your goods on the stall.
I hope that explains why you need website hosting.
