What is Web Hosting?

Web hosting is a service that allows you to post your web pages, also known as HTML files, to the Internet. Websites are stored (hosted) on a special computer called a server.

This server allows Internet users connected anywhere to reach your site when they put in your domain address.

Web hosting providers are often confused with ISPs (Internet Service Providers). An Internet service provider provides Internet access to a user via dial-up, broadband, cable, DSL, or wireless connections.

An Internet service provider focuses on the connectivity and accessibility of the Internet; while a web hosting provider focuses more on the computers that house, maintain, and serve up the website through the Internet.

Starsnsites proudly recommends Koi Hosting, and we will be glad to assist you in choosing the plan that is right for you.

Currently there are three basic types of hosting companies, all at various levels of performance and price.

  1. Private Servers (A great solution if you have the budget and the experience.)
  2. Shared Hosting with thousands of clients (The better solution if you don't mind slower performance at times.)
  3. Economy Hosting with hundreds of thousands of websites. (The last alternative if your budget is minimal, and you have extra time to speak to a phone bank in the Middle East.)
