A web hosting service is a kind of Internet hosting service that permits individuals and organizations to provide their own website accessible via the World Wide Web (WWW). Web hosts are companies that provide space on a server they own or lease for the use of their clients as well as for providing Internet connectivity, usually in a database center. Web hosts can also provide data center space and connectivity to the Internet from the servers.
When users type a web address into the address bar by typing or commanding a unique ip (internet protocol) address, browser sends out a request to retrieve that particular web page. The request surfs across the Internet to the appropriate web server and attempts to locate the web page on that server. If the request is successful, the web page displays on computer screen.
