Web Hosting, which is a service used to store and publish websites online, makes websites accessible to internet users around the world. Website data such as code, text, images, and other files are hosted (stored) on computers called servers.

Domain names are like street addresses for the internet. Someone who wishes to view a website enters the domain name in their web browser address bar. The correct hosting server is contacted and the data — usually website pages — are retrieved and displayed.

This aims to be the ultimate resource for choosing a hosting company that fits your needs. Find your perfect web host by narrowing down your choices with our comparison tool, selecting the hosting features that are most important to you. Be sure read our in-depth, unbiased reviews by our hosting experts, as well as real user reviews (by folks like you).

We are known for our host lookup tool (search box above), which helps people find the web host for a given domain name. Often this information is needed for creating DMCAs for plagiarised content.

We also and publish technical guides, nostalgic code tutorials and our blog where we break down complicated topics into step by step guides and data visualizations.
