What is a Hosting Account?
A Hosting account means finding a home for your Web site on Web servers, which are stored in a secure, climate controlled environment and are connected to the Internet so that other people on the Internet can view your web site.
Website and domain hosting is a necessity for any Web site — it is the physical location of your Web site on the Internet, an online storage center that houses the information, images, video, and other content that comprises your Web site.
Web hosting service providers maintain the server where the data associated with your Web site resides, and also manage the technology that makes your Web site connect to the Internet.
Web site hosting is typically measured in the amount of disk space you’re allotted on the server and the amount of data transfer or “bandwidth” you need for accessing the server. For example, if you have a lot of customer interaction at your Web site, such as files to download, you will access the server frequently and you’ll need more Website hosting transfer space than someone who simply puts readable text on their Web site. The more “items” or “content” you are hosting on your site (i.e., photos, maps, PDF files, etc.), the more disk space you’ll need for Web site and domain hosting.
