Web Hosting

Web hosting, website hosting service is when you rent space from a website hosting company. This space is generally used to store all files in the form of images, html files and all other file formats related to your website. These files include html, javascript, gif, jpg, png, audio or video files, etc.

The web hosting bandwidth and space will be set in advance. A web hosting, website hosting service company will normally give you a limited amount of web space. You will also receive a certain amount of bandwidth, usually measured in GB, which accounts for how many times all your files are served to visitors. For instance, someone downloading a 1MB ebook will count for 1MB of bandwidth.

They will also generally provide you with support for your hosting account and ensure uptime. Often, more expensive hosting accounts have better support, such as telephone support (as opposed to strictly online or email support) with 24 hour support available.
