The Direct answer is Web Hosting allows your website to be put on the internet live up and running. Let’s dig a little deeper about how this works.
You may think Web Hosting is simple but think about it, have you ever hosted an event before, You have to make sure everything is taken care of. The food is ready, The music and DJ are present, the guests are comfortable, and that the place looks good. Your guests are going to come and enjoy themselves and not have to worry about anything but having a good time, But you have to keep working behind the scenes making sure everything continues smoothly.
It’s the same with Web Hosting while clients and customers come to your site and enjoy themselves. We will be working behind the scenes to make sure your site is up and running with updates, Security checks, backups, spam protection, email protection, Plugins, SSL protection, etc.

There are 4 main components to a site.

  • Email accounts
  • FTP file uploads
  • Databases
  • Websites

These 4 components stated above are very important for your site and must be protected and taken care of, Web Hosting is more than just the website in the server sitting there. There is a lot of backend work for every site that is hosted on the internet.
