What is Web Hosting and How You Can Use it for Your Website in Melbourne, Australia

Order NowGet Info

If you want to start a website for your business or just wish to create a blog with your own dedicated domain name, one of the first things that you're going to have to figure out is where to host. People without a technical background or a lot of technical knowledge don't know what a host is, and this article should serve as a proper definition.
A website must take up physical space, and that space is on a server. A server is a dedicated computer that uses its power to store a website and display that website to anyone who types in its domain name. Every server, therefore, has its own IP address and often a domain name. If you were to type in XYZ.com/ABC.html into your web browser, for instance, your computer would be connected to the XYZ.com server, and that server would find the /ABC.html page and display it for you.

Why You Need Web Hosting in Melbourne

Let’s say you were the owner of the XYZ.com website. You would require a server to host your website and handle all of the traffic that comes to it on any given day. If XYZ is a company that does Croc Tours on the Adelaide River in Australia, it’s safe to say that nobody in your employ knows anything about servers or hosting a website. That’s where web hosting companies come in. Web hosts are businesses or individuals who have the appropriate hardware and software necessary for hosting websites. They manage all of the technical aspects of running a site and let you fill in the blanks about your particular company. In essence, they make it easy to run a website without anybody in your employ needing to know anything about the process.
