Websites need to be hosted. But what does hosted / hosting mean? Well, a website is made up of lots of pages full of code and images, those pages and images are held in files and it is linked to a database.
The hosting keeps the files of our clients websites so that when someone checks the internet for your business, the hosting takes that information and displays the websites on your screen.
Hosting must also be quick, I mean what would your clients think if your web page took forever to load. This can happen if the web design has been done poorly during development.
