Whether you are building a website or sending emails, you will be creating computer files. These files need be stored in and processed by a server so that everyone can access your website and you can send/receive emails. This is called hosting.
A server is a special computer, similar to your computer, but with much more capacity and is normally built very specifically for hosting websites and emails. Anything related to protecting and taking care the server, its software, security, support, bandwidth, speed and so much more, is what we do better! Our promise is to take care of everything for you so you can concentrate on your business. Take a peek at our hosting packages.
When you make a website and want other people to see it, you will need to publish (or upload) it with a web hosting service.
Web hosting services work by storing your website files in high powered computers (web servers) connected to a very fast network. When someone types in your web address (such as www.mechanicweb.com), the Internet connects to the web server holding your website files and then transfers your website information back to their computer. From there they can surf and visit the pages of your website.
Before we jump into the different types of web hosting, it is important to remember you have to have a domain name so your website can be found on the internet. The domain name is essentially your or your company’s internet address; it is used to find your website on the internet the same way your company’s street address is used to find your offices.

Shared web hosting is the most common and easiest to start out on. Shared hosting is a service where one server is shared between many users. This typically offers the following advantages and disadvantages:
Cloud hosting is essentially a meeting place half way between shared hosting and dedicated hosting, yet has some pretty cool advantages. Cloud customers still share the physical server hardware with other cloud customers, but special virtualization technology partitions the server so that each partition has its own dedicated resources and can be configured almost like a full dedicated server.
This typically offers the following advantages and disadvantages:
Dedicated server is the meat of hosting. Just like it sounds, you get your own server and all its resources, dedicated to you and for your use only, no one else. Dedicated hosting typically offers the following advantages and disadvantages.
