How a Web Gets "Served"

To serve your information to the World Wide Web, you almost certainly need a computer with Web server software and a full-time, high-speed connection to the Internet. The hardware and software combination together is called a Web server. You can run a server entirely on your own or you may be assigned to it as part of your organization's local area network (LAN).

Web servers are increasingly owned by companies that exist precisely to provide such services. They're often called Web presence providers, or WPPs, but they go by Web Hosting Services and Web Service Providers as well. It's likely that your Internet service provider (ISP) offers some free Web space for its subscribers. Check the Web page for your ISP and see if it offers this service. If not, and if you need a web, switch to another provider. Some providers offer users as much as 20–30MB for this purpose.
