What is a web host?How is this different than my Internet Service Provider?
The host is the company that has the computers that your website files will actually physically sit on. They connect your site to the internet. They provide email services using your domain name in the addresses as well. Internet Service Providers (the company you use to dial up the Internet from your office like your cable or phone company) might also provide all these services.
Some clients prefer to keep all their cost in one place. However not all Internet Service Providers have the same level of service for the price that companies who specialize in hosting do.
