Frequently asked questions
Web Hosting is a service that makes your website accessible on the internet. When you order a hosting plan you get to "rent" space on a web server that your Web Hosting Provider looks after. Your Web Hosting provider would usually then provide you with a control panel to manage this space and upload your website files. It also allows you to create your own email accounts where once setup you can then add these email accounts you created in the control panel into Outlook or other mail clients as needed to communicate with your customers,etc. via email. Web Hosting is perfect for blogging, hobbies and small business websites and where most people start out.
Web Hosting allows your website to be online and allows you to communicate via email.
