What is Website Hosting?
Web site Hosting is having your entire web site on a host computer that is connected to the Internet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. Every website on the World Wide Web has to have a server computer which acts as a "host" computer. The host computer s stores all the web pages - html files, graphics, audio files, video files and any other files which your website contains so that your website and all its contents are accessible to users from all over the world at all times.

A custom domain name is easier to remember and gives you unique identity on the Internet.
