Website Hosting   A beginner's guide to website hosting.


what is...
the provision of Web server hosting service so that a company doesn't have to purchase and maintain its own Web server and connections to the Internet. Typically, virtual hosting provides a customer with: domain name registration assistance, multiple domain names that map to the registered domain name, an allocation of file storage and directory setup for the Web site files (HTML and graphic image files), and e-mail addresses. The customer needs only to have a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) program for exchanging files with the virtual host.
