We all might have come across the term ‘Web Hosting’ while we went to get our website developed. But still many of us don’t know exactly what a web hosting service in India is and how it works. Here is an article related to how web hosting service in India actually works.
Now before understanding how Web Hosting Service in India works let us understand in detail what is meant by the term web hosting.
In simpler term we can say that web hosting is a place where people store their websites. But as we get in detail we can now define it as a place where all the computer files like HTML, documents, images, videos, etc are stored or kept and made accessible for other users to use with the help of internet connectivity is known as web hosting. When any Internet user wishes to view a website, all he/she need’s to do is type a website’s address or domain name into his/her own web browser and then their computer will get linked to a web server and all the WebPages of the particular website will be shown to them through their web browser.
In order to make a website live mainly three things are needed like Domain Name, Name Server (DNS) and Hosting. Hosting is said to be the third and last process. Only and only after Domain name and name server are acquired Hosting comes into existence.
Before we understand how web hosting service in India actually works let us assume that at this stage we have a domain name and along with it we also have a name server and even let us make sure that our domain name is properly routing visitors to our website when they type in the domain name. After assuming all these aspects it will be much more easier for us to understand the whole process of web hosting.
Now let’s get started with web hosting. Our actual website is just a bunch of files consisting of HTML files, CSS files (style sheets), images, videos etc. The basic need for web hosting is, all of the above said files must to be in a folder on a computer that is connected to the Internet. The computer with all these folders is usually called a “server”, as it serves up all the files of our website when people visit our website. As an individual pays a company to put their files on company web server, then that process directly means an individual is buying a web hosting service.
