web hosting is a service provided by companies that allow individuals and organizations to post a website onto the Internet. A business that provides the technology and service needed for the website. The websites are stored on the business's servers and there's a limited amount of storage that individuals can buy, over a certain period of time.
Businesses like Squarespace provide hosting, storage and templates for the websites that you would want to post and can cost up $70 per year. The hosting costs depend on the domain's TLD eg; .uk might be more expensive to buy than a .com or .net
Other websites like GoDaddy, and BlueHost can provide hosting for a little less with prices froing from $15 to 20 a year. But there are no pre-existing templates available and users only receive limited storage.
