Web site hosting is when a company or individual hosts your web site on their server space and allows it to be accessed on the Internet. Most web hosting companies require a monthly or annual fee to host your site. Prices vary depending on the options you require such as additional server space, secure servers and the speed of the hosting computer. Popular web hosts include GoDaddy, Siteground, Dot Easy, Fat Cow and Blue Host.
In addition to providing web hosting, they can also provide domain name registration, email services and more.
