    I sometimes get confused with all the web lingo. With domain names, webhosting, forum software, and more, it's hard to keep track of what's what. So could someone clear the air and define web hosting for me? I'm 99% sure I know what it is, but just want to make sure! Thanks!

    A Web Hosting Provider is someone who owns a computer (or pays someone who owns a computer) also called a server and gives it to you for a certain amount of money that depends on the specifications of the computer. The most popular kind of hosting is shared hosting where multiple users are on one computers; then there's dedicated hosting where you get one full computer.

    Dedicated hosting is usually much more expensive than shared hosting and is only for big websites.
