Website hosting refers to
the place where the files that make up your
website reside on the Internet. Just as
the letter you wrote yesterday is sitting
somewhere on your computer's hard drive, the
files that comprise your website need to sit on
an Internet server. That is hosting.
Hosting can generally be
broken down into the hosting of your website and
the hosting of your e-mail. Both are
usually done on the same Internet server.
Hosting costs are based on the amount of data
that makes up your website and on website traffic.
Website traffic refers to the amount of data
transferred from the Internet server to people
who are viewing your website.
Why are costs based on these items?
Because both add to the cost of running the
server and the infrastructure that connects all
of the servers and viewers on the Internet.
Simply put, a server can only hold so much data
until it is full and another server needs to be
added to the system, and only so much data can
be transmitted through a cable connecting the
server to the Internet before another cable
needs to be added. These cost more money.
