Webmaster/host

Hosting is a service usually provided by a third party. Web hosts own and care for Web servers. A Web server is a computer that has server software installed and is connected to the Internet. For a fee, the owners of the server, or host, allow individuals to copy their Web site files to the Web server so that they're accessible to everyone with an Internet connection.

In addition to owning servers and renting space, Web hosts take care of the servers. They might also provide additional software that tracks the number of visitors your site has. Many Web hosts also offer URL (Web site address — for example, www.yourname.com) purchasing services. Most Web hosts will sell a complete package, including space for your site, e‐mail, traffic reports (number of visitors to your site), and URL purchasing.
