Part 4: Where Should Your Website Reside?

Everything has a home, a place in which it exists, and your website is no different.

A website’s home is not its content (words and images), nor is it a website’s address, which is called its domain name (or URL).

A website’s home, called its WEB HOST, is the location where the web content resides.

Just as choosing a home for your family is an important decision, so is choosing the right web host (home) for your website. In this fourth installment of our Six-Part Series on We…
