Your Simple Guide to Web Hosting

Web hosting refers to where our website is going to be “living”. Just like our families have their own homes to live in, a website’s set of files must have a little space somewhere to call their own.

These spaces are called servers, and there are large warehouses all over the world that are full of them, all waiting to be “rented out” to you, the client. This is done through what we call a hosting company. Its job is to rent you a space on their server, take care of your files, and provide the best service possible to keep your site running smoothly.

There are certain factors to take into consideration when choosing your web host, some more important than others. Below is a list of these factors in no particular order to get you going on your new site.

This is achieved by hosting your website on a server that is shared with many other website owners.

I’ll make things simpler for you by gathering the best shared hosting providers I’ve used and comparing them in this post.
