What is Web Hosting?

Web Hosting, which is a service used to store and publish websites online, makes websites accessible to internet users around the world. Website data such as code, text, images, and other files are hosted (stored) on computers called servers.

Domain names are like street addresses for the internet. Someone who wishes to view a website enters the domain name in their web browser address bar. The correct hosting server is contacted and the data -- usually website pages -- are retrieved and displayed.

What is WhoIsHostingThis.com?

WhoIsHostingThis aims to be the ultimate resource for choosing a hosting company that fits your needs.
