In the Webster’s dictionary one of the definitions of host is:
” a country or area that provides place and services for a competition or event [the city will be host to the Olympics].”
In the world of the internet a Website Host is “the activity or business of providing storage space and access for websites”.
Websites consist of pages and pictures and these are stored on a computer which is part of an INTER-connected NETwork of computers. Every website needs a Host – a space for the pages and pictures to reside.
