What is web hosting?
Web hosting is the process of storing, maintaining, and serving files related to websites.
Every time you visit a website you interact with a web hosting service. It is the thing that sends you all of the data that the website your visiting is comprised of.
A web host is typically just a computer, usually in a datacenter, but one that has been configured specifically to serve web content to the public.
