Server Hosting

Luckily, for most of us, you don't need to understand the ins and out of how the Internet works to be able to use it. But, if you're creating your own website or you're thinking of going into computer engineering as a career, then you're going to need to know how everything fits together the way that a doctor knows about the human body. Server hosting is one of the basics to how the Internet works and is a good place to start if you're interested in learning more about this world.

A host is essentially a place to store data and in terms of the Internet this is going to be one machine that allows another to get online and will hold all of the information for something like a website. If you're living in a city like Toronto, for instance, and you're looking for server hosting, Toronto has a number of different companies that you can choose from. But, when you're looking for hosting for a website rather than hosting to help you get online with an IP address, you should remember that you don't need to go local.

There is a difference between network hosting and web hosting. Network hosting is going to be that system that connects to yours and allows you access to anything that you might need on the Internet. Web hosting is what people call the servers that hold the information, programs and applications that will support a website. You might also hear some other terms that have to do with this idea of hosting. A dedicated server, for example, is one computer that's entire function is to manage all of the information in one network, like at a large business. Make sure you know exactly what you're looking for before you find the hosting company that is right for you.

Web hosting can help many different types of business, such as:
