what is hosting?
Once a Website is designed it needs to be 'Hosted' somewhere. This basically means electronic versions of each page, all the fonts and linked or associated files are all bundled up and stored to a remote server. When someone types in your domain or does a search and gets a 'hit' for your buisness they are then routed or directed to the server where your Website files are located and the pages appear.
how is it charged?
Hosting is charged as a monthly premium and paid for 12 months in advance. Hosting rates will vary depending on the resources that your site requires, like the number os email addresses required, physical storage space required to actually host or store the files associated with your Website. There are other factors that impact Hosting costs like Security for On-Line payments etc.
