What is web hosting and why do I need it?

Web hosting runs on a server owned by a web hosting company — your site is just a small section of that server. In other words, web hosting is like the hook where you hang your hat. It is the space on the Internet where you place your website’s files. In order to have an active website on the internet, your site needs to have a place to live or a host. There are free hosting options but much like any living space, a paid host will come with more amenities. WizardPig hosting has various levels of hosting options so that you can choose which level will be the best fit for you and your site.
