What is web hosting?

Web hosting means renting disk space on a server. Your website contains files (text, code, images,…) that need to be saved somewhere.

Why can't I set up free web hosting on a personal computer?

The server is intended exclusively for web hosting. This makes it:

  • Powerful enough to not slow down your site.
  • Specially secured against cyber attacks.
  • In operation non-stop 24/7, so that your website is always online.

What is stored on the server?

  • file database (texts, images, music, videos,…)
  • CMS editorial system (WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, etc.)
  • HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP files (your website code)
  • emails from a mailbox set up on the site's domain.
