Today we will be looking at what web hosting is, how it works, and why people need it. We will also take a look at the hosting options that Arvixe offers, so you can decide which one is right for you!
What is web hosting?
For people or companies to allow access to their website through the internet, they require a web hosting service. Web hosting companies, such as Arvixe Web Hosting, own or lease servers. These companies then provide space on a server for their clients to use. Web hosting companies allow users of the World Wide Web to connect to an individual or company’s webpage.
How does web hosting work?
A web hosting company like Arvixe has computers that are connected to the internet day and night. These computers are what are referred to as servers. Each individual server is assigned an IP address so that other computers that are connected to the internet may find them. These servers contain all of your web files. Whenever you type in an address in your browser, your computer sends a request to the web server, attempting to locate the specific page. If the page is available, your browser will either load or download this page!
Why do you need web hosting?
The simplest way to have a website available to everyone through the internet is by having web hosting. Whether you are interested in starting your own business or you simply want to share your family photos, web hosting is the first crucial step. Here at Arvixe, we offer several hosting options to suit your needs:
