Hosting emails and websites
When you decide to create and host your website, you can get a custom domain, email addresses, and web hosting all bundled into one subscription.
When Web users choose to look at your online site, all they have to do is type your online site address or domain into their internet browser. Their computer will then be connected to your hosting server and your webpages will be delivered to them through the browser.
The majority of hosting companies require that you own your domain if you want to host with them. The hosting companies will help you purchase one if you do not have a domain.
Website hosting is a professional service that enables individuals and organizations to publish a website or blog onto the World wide web. A web host, or web hosting service provider, is a business enterprise that supplies the services and technologies needed for the website or webpage to get seen in the Internet. Websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called servers.
