Hosting

Web hosting or website hosting is the provision of the technologies and services needed for the website or webpage to be viewed on the Internet. Websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called servers.

Your website needs to sit on a server and uses bandwidth when viewed by your website visitors. The cost for space on the server and bandwidth usage form the largest part of your hosting fee but in addition, the annual hosting fee covers security software called iThemes Security, anti-spam software called Akismet, mail delivery software called Sendgrid and important security updates needed to keep your website safe in order to prevent malicious hacking and address security flaws.

The annual hosting fee does not cover amendments to your website content or text, images or changes to the layout or design of the website.
