After acquiring a domain name, an address for a site, the next thing needed is space to host it. This article will focus on hosting a site at a third party’s location or hosting provider.
The server space is akin to a physical location to place a business. Most commonly, with small to medium websites, space is leased from a third party. There are three different types of hosting packages to fit the size and complexity of the site being deployed. Sites can easily migrate from one type to another as they grow, although the management of the server increases with upgrades as well.
