A web host, or web hosting service provider, is a business that provides the technologies and services that needed for the website or webpage to be viewed or accessed by the Internet. These websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called as servers. If you do not have a domain name, the hosting companies will help you purchase the domain name.

Hosting, is a service through which storage and computing resources are provided to an individual or organization for the accommodation and maintenance of one or more websites on the internet.
