WHAT DOES HOSTING MEAN?
This is an excellent question. If you are not a in the Tech. World, but you own a business, and have been investigating getting a website. Then you have heard of Hosting. The simple answer is: Hosting is Space on a Hard Drive, where your Website files, are located.
This is how I have always explained it, to new Clients. When you are setting buying a Website, you are gonna need to know about:
1. Domain Name
2. Hosting Space
3. Website Application
4. http Server
5. Email Server
6. DNS Server
7. SSL Certificate (Encryption & Protection for Visitors)
8. S.E.O. (Search Engine Optimazation)
The Domain name is the Virtual Address/Name of your Business. The Website is your Virtual Building. And the Hosting is the Virtual Land, your Business (Website) resides on. So, depending on the type of Website you are gonna need, will factor in, how much Hosting Space you need.
Now, when it all boils down to it, Hosting Space, is Hard Drive Space on a System, located somewhere. You Laptop, phone, and even Camera, can have Server Space. The Website App. is Files, saved on a Hard Drive, some place, And the Domain name, is an word based name, for a set of numbers, known as an IP address.
Thats the basic overview of Hosting Space. The other things you need to know about, are if things which you need to know, if you are Developing your own website. If not, it is what your Webmaster, will take care of, for you. Such as the DNS Server. This is used to tell Browser what to do, when request are made to your Server. S.E.O. is used to help get your Site listed in Search Engines, with Keywords, and Keyword pharses, related to what you have to offer.
