What is Web Hosting?
Web Hosting is a necessity for any website — it is the physical location of your website on the Internet, an online storage center that houses the information, images, video, and other content that comprises your website. Web hosting providers maintain the server where your website data resides and also manages the technology that makes your website connect to the internet.
Not all Web Hosting is the same!
Yes, it is true that some companies can “host” your site for a very low cost. However, storing data is just one part of hosting. Imagine that you just built a brand-new beautiful house and now you need to put it on a piece of land. You could put it in a trailer park, with no security, no sideways, no lights, just set it and forget it, or you could place your new home in a gated community, with lights, edged sideways, always keeping everything trimmed up and clean, protecting your property around the clock. With managed hosting, your site is always being updated and backed up and checked, regularly.
