is Web Hosting?
Web hosting is when you rent
space from a hosting company. This space is generally used to store all
jpg, png, audio or video files, etc.
A hosting company will normally
give you a limited amount of space, measured either in megabytes (MB)
or gigabytes (GB). You will also receive a certain amount of bandwidth,
usually measured in GB, which accounts for how many times all your files
are served to visitors. For instance, someone downloading a 1MB ebook
will count for 1MB of bandwidth.
They will also generally provide
you with support for your hosting account and ensure uptime. Often, more
expensive hosting accounts have better support, such as telephone support
(as opposed to strictly online or email support) with 24 hour support
