What Is Web Hosting? Explained Simply | GoDaddy

Hi there! In this video, you’ll learn what hosting is and we’ll identify the four types of hosting available at GoDaddy. To make your website visible on the web, your website’s files and data must be physically stored on a computer that is connected to the Internet. These large high-powered computers are
called web servers. Website hosts are companies that physically house several web servers in one location, or what is sometimes referred to as a data center. In addition to housing the web servers, website hosts provide the software, security, support, and bandwidth that connects your website to the internet. Think of a website hosting company like a shopping center that contains several individual stores. If you want to open a store at the shopping center, you can lease space in it and set up shop. Just like a shopping center, website hosting companies enable you to lease space on their web servers, where you can store your website files and make them available for visitors to view on the Internet. To accommodate a wide variety of websites and customer needs, there are a variety of hosting solutions. Hosting solutions are broadly categorized based on the amount of server space you need for your website files, and the monthly amount of bandwidth your site consumes. Bandwidth refers to the amount of data being transferred, or the amount of resource usage your website requires. Consider your shop again… Suppose you sell only handmade bracelets; you have a small, unique product offering, so you don’t need, nor want, to lease the same amount of space as a big department store. Instead, you could lease a smaller store in the shopping center that gives you just enough space for your goods and costs less money. Additionally, because you’re a small shop you don’t need a lot of extra technology or staff to help you sell your product like a department store requires. Between you and your mobile payment device, you have plenty of bandwidth to take care of your customers, and don’t need to buy any extra technology or hire more employees. Make sense? Beyond server space and bandwidth, there are other things to consider when selecting a hosting solution: your budget, ease of use or complexity of solution, the level of flexibility or customization the solution allows, as well as privacy and security features. GoDaddy offers a variety hosting solutions. To determine which hosting solution is best for you, please visit GoDaddy.com and click Hosting.

    Hat Is Shared Hosting?

    Shared Hosting is a web hosting package on a server that’s shared between other users who have purchased a shared hosting package.

    These packages provide an affordable solution for individuals or businesses setting up their online presence.

    With shared hosting, you share the server’s resources (CPU, RAM, Disk Space, etc) and are restricted from making server-wide changes. That’s why the cost of shared hosting is drastically lower than that of a Cloud Server or Dedicated Server.


    Which Products Are Considered Shared Hosting?

    All of the following hosting plans fall under shared hosting:

    Basic Web Hosting: Allows for a single domain to be hosted
    Advanced Web Hosting: Allows for 4 total domains to be hosted
    Ultimate Web Hosting: Allows for unlimited domains to be hosted

    The number of domains allowed to be hosted is the only difference between the 3 packages.
