What exactly is a Web Host?
A web host is a company that has computers that are hooked up to the internet 24/7. These computers are called servers and they are assigned IP numbers so that they may be found by other computers hooked up to the internet. It is on these servers that all the files for your website are stored.
What do I need with a Web Host?
Web hosting companies are the connection between an individual or company and World Wide Web readers. aTo put a website online, one must go through a web host. Web hosts are companies that provide space on a server they own or lease for use by their clients as well as providing internet connectivity, typically in a data center. Web hosting will allow you to install many applications and dat on your website and internet users will be able to view your website without any interruptions like extended loading or slow downloading.
Ok, now how do I choose a Web Host?
Don’t choose a host until you know exactly what support they offer in regards to technical support. Can you phone them? At what times? Do they have a support email address? A ticket system? What’s their promised response time? How about a live chat?
Choosing an appropriate web host will help you expand your business, create good relations with your clients and maximize your profits.
