»What is a hosting and why do we need it?

Server machine Usually, the first thing you are thinking of after the decision of making or purchasing website, is its name – a topic briefly described here. However, this is only the first step to make – you would also need a place to host all the data (and logic), behind your site.

Such a place should be also accessible from everywhere. Yes, you are right – you would need a (kind of) server. In most common use, server is a physical computer (a computer hardware system) dedicated to running one or more such services (as a host), to serve the needs of users of the other computers on the network. Depending on the computing service that it offers it could be a database server, file server, mail server, print server, web server, or some other kind of server. Of course, you may also configure your personal computer to act like a web (or any other kind of) server, but this would not be so simple and more importantly not safe at all – see here for more information.

Web hosting companies are the alternative. They offer web servers to host your site, as well as ready-to-use applications (services), making the maintenance of the website a lot easier. Hosting plans are usually taxed on annual basis and prices depend on many factors. We would be glad to take the responsibility of the process of buying a hosting and registering the domain name you have chosen.
