Hosting is also commonly referred to as a web server. This is a computer that is programmed to do specific tasks, like hold and execute web files. These computers all live in one location commonly known as a Data Center. These places can push and pull large amounts of web traffic at one time. Australians are encouraged to use Australia Data Centers, there is no point sending information overseas just to come back again.
Hosting is often billed monthly or yearly, depending on your host provider.
