Now there are thousands of web hosting providers. You can get shared hosting, cloud service, virtual server, or a complete dedicated hosting just for you. If you are extremely picky with your demands, you can even host your website at your own server that you actually own. Web hosting now is easy, but there was a long way. This is the history of web hosting.
What is web hosting?
Web hosting is a service that hosting providers offer for hosting sites that can be accessed through the Internet. All of the site’s resources – the code of the site, databases, photos, videos, etc. need to be stored in a special place that has an appropriate environment (PHP, database service like MySql or MariaDB, HTTPS, Apache server, and more).
