Hosting 101

What is website hosting?

A website “host” is a computer, one that exists solely for the purpose of being available for incoming connections to read files, download content, and provide code. An internet browser uses all of this information to re-create a website in the way that it was originally designed, or as absolutely close as possible.

In the past, a “host” was as simple as taking a home PC, connecting to the internet, and configuring it to allow others to read or download files from it. These days, “hosting” is typically a term for a hosting service, rather than an individual piece of hardware. These services use software that runs on anywhere from a few to tens of thousands of machines, that are all connected together. Often this takes place in a massive server center, equipped with industrial-grade security, redundant power supplies, disaster-proof materials, and incredibly expensive and complex internet connections to handle the enormous amount of data traffic flowing in and out.

 

Website Hosting and Email

Email is often associated with web hosting and is sometimes configured to run on the same server. Switch does not provide email hosting. Since email is typically configured to use your domain name, such as “yourname@yourdomain.com”, Switch can assist in recommending a dedicated email service, and configure your domain’s mail record to route to correct location.
