What is Web Hosting

Web hosting is the service that allows you to display your website on the internet, it’s like your little space on the internet. You need to rent the space from the website hosting company in order to display your website. 

You need a domain name for your website which is the address of your website, it is the name that you type into the url bar of your browser (the search bar at the top of the screen) to find your website. You can purchase a domain name from the hosting company too. The domain name you chose can be your kennel club affix, kennel name or pet business name if it hasn’t already been taken.
