How Does Web Hosting Work?
Your website is just a collection of different files. When you create a website you need a place to store all of these files. That place is your hosting company’s server.
Web hosts are companies that rent out their services and technologies to host websites on the internet. Once the hosting company hosts your website, users can access it by typing in your web address (domain name) in their web browser. When they do this, their computer connects to the server your website is hosted on. The server in turn serves (sends the files you have stored on the storage to display) the website to your web visitor in their web browser.
