What is Hosting?
3 January 2015 (last update: 15 June 2017 at 09:27 hrs)
When you want other people to see your website, you need to publish it by uploading it to a server. This means the server is "hosting" your website. Your hosting plan allows you to make your website accessible to the internet. When a visitor types in your web address (such as cakewalkwebsites.com), the internet connects to the web server that is hosting your website files and then transfers your website information back to their computer, that's how visitors view the pages of your website.
Your hosting plan offers online storage (text, video, images etc...) and an array of other hosting related services like customized e-mail addresses.
Cakewalk Websites partners with LiquidWeb, a reliable Michigan based company that provides web hosting services to over a million websites.
