|Web Hosting - What is it?|
This is the process of storing a web site (pages, images, databases, audio and video) and on a secure, specialised computer (Server) connected via a very fast connection to the internet. More importantly the server that hosts (stores) the website is able to handle 1000's of incoming connections (visitors) globally to the web site at any one time.
The standard and the most common type of web hosting known as "shared web hosting" is where your web site is placed on the same server as many other sites. Typically, all domains (websites) share a common pool of server resources, such as RAM and the CPU. Your individual domain (web address) is like a folder on the server.
