it's also called a web hotel; it's place your website "lives" in.
I like the answer, best way to explain to a novice.

Coming to the question. In the world of internet ther eare two things needed to set up a website:

1. Domain Name: Its like Login or Register to View This link;
2. A place on the internet where you can upload your pages/information that visitors to your site can see, this is called hosting.

Webhosting in short is a service provider. They provide you or rent rather, space on their computer (also called a server) for you to host your files. This is where you would upload your .html files or your webpage and those files are linked by a domain name or ip address so that people on the web can connect with the server and as an end result view your website.

There are more and more webhosting companies out there offering low cost packages and some even offering a free domain for signing up,

If you have any specific questions just pm me I would be more than happy to help point you in the right direction of help you better understand.

As part of your web hosting costs be sure that you get a hosting company that includes the capability to POP you domain email. Basically you are paying the web hosting company to hold your website that you have created on their computer (server) so that it is accessible on the web.

Web hosting companies are the connection between an individual or company and World Wide Web readers. To put a webpage online, one must go through a web host.
Web hosting was quite simple in the beginning but it has now become more diverse. It has so many different solutions and packages that one need to master it to make good use of it. The advent of audio-visual applications has added great freedom of entertainment to web hosting world. Web hosting is catering to whole world.

Web hosting refers to a service that makes your website available to your users. In general, most websites are intended to be viewed by anyone on the Internet, at any time. If you want anyone on the Internet to be able to view your website at any time, you need to make sure your website is running on a computer which is connected to the Internet 24 hours per day, 7 days per week (24/7).

According to me, Web hosting means to store all your web pages in the web server of the hosting company where people can browse them through a web browser. The web server is on twenty four hours a day so that your web pages are available all the time.

Your web hosting stores your files for your website. The concept is, you "rent" a computer from the provider that will host your website and all the files that goes with it. Every time you access your website by typing the domain address or clicking the link, you are actually commanding that computer to access the files that would make your site show up. Here's a list of web hosting providers: Login or Register to View This link;
That's what I use when shopping for new web hosts.

A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web. Web hosts are companies that provide space on a server owned or leased for use by clients, as well as providing Internet connectivity, typically in a data center. Web hosts can also provide data center space and connectivity to the Internet for other servers located in their data center

Web hosting is basically where you will be storing your files. It's space on a server that will 'hold' your content so that it can be publicly accessed.
