Question: What is Web Hosting?
Where you keep your Web page is called "hosting". There are all different types of hosting options, from very expensive commercial Web hosts, to free Web hosts.
In order to work on your Web page, you need a hosting option. You can find free hosting alternatives on my site and on the Personal Web site at About.com.
Finally, you can use your own hosting service through your ISP. Contact your service provider for more details about how to put Web pages up there.
For most Web design, you will need a place to host your Web pages.
