Website hosting

What exactly is web hosting?

There are essentially two main parts to serving a website online – the domain name and the hosting environment.

When someone visits your website, your website and all its elements (html files, images, text, etc) need to be “served” to the user from a high-powered computer somewhere. We call this a “server”, which is often located in a datacenter (a big building of servers). You are essentially renting space on a high-powered computer where your website files are stored – and “served” to someone anytime they visit the website. This is ‘web hosting’.

When you purchase a new domain name (such as www.example.com), it needs to be configured in a way so that when someone types it in their address bar, it directs them to the hosting environment where your website files are located. Likewise, the hosting package needs to be configured in a way that it knows to receive traffic from your domain name (www.example.com).

Picture it this way:

Your domain name is your street address. Without it, people won’t know how to find your business. But with it, people can arrive at your business location.

Web hosting is your office space, which you pay for as a monthly rental fee. Without it, your business has nowhere to operate from – nowhere to serve customers from.

So is all web hosting just the same?

Not at all! Just like renting physical office space, the quality can differ greatly. You wouldn’t want your business to be located in a bad neighborhood, or in an office space that’s too small or cramped, or with old, outdated amenities!

When you host with monomedia, your website (your business), is being hosted in a business-friendly neighborhood and you’re getting all the best features with plenty of space and speed – meaning your website can operate efficiently and can be served that much faster when someone visits it.
