What is web hosting and do I need it?
Every website takes up space on a physical server somewhere. Web hosting stores those files and makes your site’s content accessible to people online.
Learn more about what web hosting is, why you need it, and what options may be right for you.
What type of web hosting do I need?
It all depends on the needs of your site. For beginners and smaller sites, shared hosting is probably just right. For those who need more control, VPS or dedicated hosting is likely a better option.
Learn about the different hosting options available, and see which one is a good fit.
