Every website consists of a combination of graphics, images, and content that are dynamically brought together by programming code that displays everything in the format of a web page.
Therefore, every website contains files that must be placed in folders on a “web server.” Web servers consist of hardware and software that connect to the Internet 24/7. The process of allowing you to put your websites files on a web servers is called web hosting.
The Internet provides the means for users to access your website, not a storage facility. Web hosting companies provide you the platform you need to publicly display your website on the Internet.
In the most basic terms, a web hosting company provides a home for many websites, and allows those websites to appear on the Internet. Every business must either go through a web hosting company or have its own web server (a very costly investment). No website is accessible on the Internet without residing on a web server.
Please keep in mind that, although web hosting gives the public access to your website, it alone does not drivetraffic to your website. If you are looking to increase the number of visitors to your website, you should consider search engine optimization, pay-per-click advertising, or email marketing services.
