Why Does It Matter for Your Website?
What is website hosting? This is to make a point, I promise. When you go to a party, there’s always a host. The host is usually the one who sets the location so everyone can come and enjoy the party. When you’re thinking of website hosting, think of your site’s host like the host of the party.

What is website hosting?
As I said before, website hosting allows your site to be on the internet. You can have the best-looking website out there, but without a host, all you have is a bunch of files with nowhere to go.
