What does hosting mean?


The foundation of a website is contained in hosting.

What is hosting? It is simply a space for rent on the web for managing the contents of photos, texts, codes, software, websites, emails etc.

Think of it as computers communicating with the outside world. When you pay for hosting you simply pay to take up space on these computers.

What types of hosting are there?

There is Dedicated Server hosting which usually costs around 1000.- chf per year and there is Shared hosting which usually costs around 100.- chf per year. The difference? Dedicated hosting is like having a villa on your own, Shared hosting is a condominium where there are thousands of other websites, of all kinds, porn, illegal, corporate etc. etc. when Google blocks a site in a condominium, it blocks the entire condominium.

Then there is the ticinoWEB solution, which is like terraced houses, if with a few other residents, all controlled and verified as good people and with all the comforts, swimming pool, whirlpool, sauna, gym etc. and all this for 192.- chf a year which includes:
