A web hosting service often shortened to web host 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, called colocation , also known as housing in Latin America or France. Until , the Internet was restricted to use only " The World Wide Web protocols had only just been written   and not until the end of would there be a graphical web browser for Mac or Windows computers. To host a website on the internet , an individual or company would need their own computer or server. The owners of the websites, also called webmasters , would be able to create a website that would be hosted on the web hosting service's server and published to the web by the web hosting service. As the number of users on the World Wide Web grew, the pressure for companies, both large and small, to have an online presence grew.
