What is hosting?
With hosting or web hosting, webspace (storage space) is provided or rented for operating and publishing websites. Just as files or documents are stored on a PC in order to be used, websites need storage space. Unlike documents stored on a local PC, however, websites must be accessible at all times, regardless of the user's location. Theoretically, it is possible to operate a website from one's own PC. However, this would be expensive and very time-consuming. That is why the vast majority of website operators use webspace on servers from specialized hosting providers. The servers used are powerful and are regularly maintained, and the availability is monitored, provided that they are reputable hosting providers.
