Since the inception of internet, the web has taken the world by storm. People and organizations are making web sites which allow them to be seen by the whole world present on the net. Web hosting is the process by which we can make our website accessible to the World Wide Web.
After making a site, we have to put it on a platform or a server which will enable people from all over the world to see our site, which is its main purpose. This is done by web hosts, who provide us space for our website, on their servers. This is called web hosting.
Usually, for personal web sites, a single page site is enough and comes usually free or for a very minimal cost. However, to host a business web site, which takes more pages hence more space, money is charged by these web hosts. There are ample web hosts in the market who provide you their services along with site development too.
