Website Hosting is like saving your photos to the cloud. Hosting means renting your little part of the cloud to run your website.
The cloud is a data centre with rooms full of computer servers. So instead of having our own computer server we rent some server space in a data centre provided by professionals. This is hosting.
There are different types of hosting, depending on what you need to do:
- Linux Hosting – this will run any website and includes email. We recommend the premium version as it gives you
- A solid state drive (SSD)
- Unlimited emails
- Unlimited space
- A very competitive price
- Windows Hosting – this is more expensive (due to the cost of Windows Server licenses). It is generally only needed if you have a program that needs MS Windows to work
