    Hosting (also known as Web site hosting, Web hosting, and Webhosting) is the business of housing, serving, and maintaining files for one or more Web sites. More important than the computer space that is provided for Web site files is the fast connection to the Internet.

    Typically, an individual business hosting its own site would require a similar connection and it would be expensive. Using a hosting service lets many companies share the cost of a fast Internet connection for serving files.

    A website host allows people to access sites via their servers. A dedicated host will only host a single site which can be on the pricey side however there is a big security advantage to this as the ports on there servers that access a site will only open when you login in to your cpanel or administration area and then close when you log out. Shared Hosting is just as the name implies. It is shared by numerous sites but is also considerably less expensive. The problem with Shared Hosting is that due to the number of sites these companies usually host access ports are constantly being opened and closed by different people accessing their sites in fact many hosting companies will leave certain ports open all the time to ease traffic flow. This can be problematic as it can provide an open door for hackers. If you are on a tight budget or just starting out then Shared Hosting would be the way to go for now just make sure your site has a good solid firewall and keep a close eye on suspicious Ip addresses trying to access your site and blacklist or block them accordingly.
