Why Do I Need Web Hosting?
Web Hosting Servers can perform amazing tasks in hundredths of a second and are scalable for the growth of any business. When you are on the internet you are connected to another computer known as a server which websites require. These servers are very powerful computers and are capable of holding very large amounts of data. Unlike web storage, these servers have very sophisticated software in order to host a website because of the sheer volume of visitors to that server.
That’s the purpose of a server, a place to park a website, and web hosting is the parking garage. That’s all website hosting is, a place to park the car. Hosting requires quite a few elements but that is not a concern for the average user because you don’t care what makes the car run so long as it runs. Hosting is hosting, but WordPress website development is incremental by nature and must be learned.
