    What is the purpose of web hosting?

    I am not a technical person, but I recently developed a website for my business with the help of Developers. I want to make my website live, so can somebody explain what web hosting is and why it is important to have one?

    A web host, or web hosting service provider, is a business that provides the technologies and services needed for the website or webpage to be viewed in the Internet. Websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called servers.

          Because each user has a unique business and set of needs, web hosting should be chosen in accordance with those needs.

            Web hosts are the entities that allow websites to be accessed via the Internet. This means they retain all of the hosted site's webpages on their server, handle all of the setup and technical concerns, and have a very fast Internet connection.

            Webpages are all hosted on a Web server that is connected to the Internet's backbone. Because the costs of setting up and maintaining a server are so high, most people have their websites hosted rather than hosting them themselves. The high-speed connection alone can cost several thousand dollars each month.

              There are so numerous kinds of hosting services, and we will check why some individuals prefer them. The type of service that people go for depends on their needs or requirements for their business. Since there are numerous types of hosting, their scope also varies. Large companies even though they are not into the Internet based business; they still need computers for correspondence, easy updates, and interconnectivity. To have a computer that has an access to the Internet can be used by the staff to send email. Let us try to find out what are those web hosting services and their purposes.

              Dedicated Hosting Service is also known as managed hosting service or dedicated server. This kind of service will allow an individual or an organization to showcase their site on the Internet. It is called dedicated because only one person leases the server. In a dedicated server, the person who is leasing the space can choose the hardware and the operating system, and the database is usually on a secured place and it has superfluous power sources for recovery, and data back up.

              Shared Web Hosting Service is when a website is located on the same server just like another site. Their numbers may reach hundreds to thousands. It is the form of hosting that is more suitable if the customer do not require high bandwidth or high performance. In a shared hosting, the web server is shared by numerous sites.

              Free Web Hosting Services are being accessible by different companies, and they are typically supported with advertisements. On a free web hosting service, firm that deals the free web hosting gain profit by promoting other things in order to offset any cost. A Reseller Web Hosting will allow the client to be the web host themselves.

              On a Managed Hosting Service, the user will get their own web server but do not have the capacity to remote management tools, and they are not allowed to manage data; in short, they are not given full control over the server. There is also additional kind of hosting that is called Colocation Web Hosting which is somewhat alike to dedicated hosting but it is the most controlling and costly type of hosting service.
