What is web hosting?
Web hosting — or website hosting — involves publishing a website, blog or e-commerce platform on the internet. In most cases, people build websites locally — i.e. on a computer, so the website cannot be searched online via a web browser. This means the website owner needs to host it — or in other words, transfer its files to a server connected to the internet. For a dynamic website, you also need to deploy the database on the same hosting plan, so that your website can connect to it to work. Want to start a web project?
