What is Website Hosting?
Website hosting is the process of storing and serving your website's files, data, and content on a server connected to the internet. When someone enters your website's URL into their browser, their request is sent to the hosting server, which retrieves the necessary files and delivers them to the user's browser. Hosting providers offer the infrastructure, technology, and support needed to make your email and website accessible 24/7, 365 days per year.
Our low-cost, monthly hosting charges offer great affordability and with no contract tie-in, you simply pay each month and cease payments if you decide you no longer need your website. All we ask is one month's notice in writing (email is fine, of course).
