Web Hosting involves storing web site files on a computer specifically designed to deliver those to world-wide-web (WWW) users around the world via the Internet.

Web servers are normally located in secured and climate controlled buildings called Data Centres, these places also include dedicated service personnel who maintain equipment (such as the computers and components and routers which feed into the Internet), services (such as fibre optic network connections) and software (such as web server software and firewalls) as per their arrangements with their customers (the web hosting providers).

Web servers are very similar to the desk top personal computers most of us use on a daily basis, except that these machines are totally dedicated to serving web sites to the worldwide web, and of-course they are used to upload and manage web site files. They have CPUs, memory, hard drives and motherboards just like your PC does, the combination of components is usually constructed to provide the most efficient method of delivering web sites to visitors though. The machines can use a variety of Operating Systems (such as Windows or CentOS/Linux) and web server software (such as Apache).

Web Hosts are those individuals and companies that provide the use of these machines to users who will store their web sites on them. Web hosts usually offer many different web hosting plans to cater for different requirements.

Webmasters are those who create, develop and maintain web sites. They upload and store the web site files onto the web servers where they get delivered to the world via the Internet.

It should be noted that there are more specific types of hosting aimed at certain market sectors, such as Blog and Image hosting which aims to provide a service with quite a narrow profile. Web site hosting can be used for any of those specific sectors though and therefore offer a much more flexible and expansive means to deliver the webmaster’s message to the world.
