"Hosting (also known as Web site hosting, Web hosting, and Webhosting) is the business of housing, serving, and maintaining files for one or more Websites. Typically, an individual business hosting its own site would require a member of staff with considerable IT knowledge to maintain the server, power and hazard protection devices to keep the server up and running and an expensive investment in server hardware and software along with a dedicated Internet Connection. Using a hosting service lets many companies share the cost of a fast Internet connection, hardware, software and manpower. This equates to a fraction of the cost." Remember that Website Design is an additional part of developing your Website and bears an additional design cost.
