Website hosting – Part 1

Website hosting is a professional service that enables individuals and organizations to publish a website or blog onto the www. A web host, or web hosting service provider, is a business that supplies the services and technologies needed for the website or webpage to get seen on the Internet. Websites are hosted (stored) on special computers called servers.

When Web users choose to look at your online site, all they have to do is type your online site address or domain (for example: www.sillymoosedesigns.co.za ) into their internet browser. Your visitor’s computer looks at your hosting server and your webpages are delivered through the browser. A browser, like Google Chrome, converts the codes and images into the website users see.
