What is Web Hosting?

In very simple terms, web hosting is the computer (server) that your website files reside on. When someone visits your domain (url, website address), the web host serves your files to them on the internet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by maintaining a network of complicated, high-end and expensive servers. A web server (web host) is a must have for every website. This is not an option. Today, there are probably hundreds or even thousands of web hosting packages to choose from, so always make a comparison of the features, rates and quality of service to get the best value for your money.

Why doesn't Sugar Webs take care of my hosting?

Sugar Webs does not typically host websites. Your website should be your website. If you own the hosting account and the domain name you have the freedom to take your website anywhere. You are not tied to one designer, or one company that holds the keys to your website. You hold the keys, you are in control.
