Web hosting: What does it all mean?
A web hosting service is a type of service that permits organizations and other people to create their own website. The website can then be accessed by people via the World Wide Web. Web hosting companies have their own server, and they provide space on that server for people to use to create their own websites. Web hosting companies also give users Internet connectivity. This Internet connectivity usually comes from data centers.
There are many different types of web hosting services. There is free web hosting. There is expensive web hosting, and there is web hosting that cost a lot of money. Most web hosting is paid for on a monthly basis. You can find web hosting that cost about $2.99 per month and you can find web hosting that costs about $10 per month.
Often free web hosting will offer the most basic web hosting set up. For instance, users may get a one-page website. They will receive small-scale file hosting. The files can be uploaded using file transfer protocol. They can also be uploaded using a web interface. Often times free web hosting comes with ads that display across the webpage in huge colorful banners. This is a disadvantage to using free web hosting. However if you plan to use web hosting for personal use, a single page website with a few advertisements may not be a problem for you.
