21. Publishing Your Pages on the Web > Finding a Host for Your Site

Finding a Host for Your Site

Unless you have your own server, you’ll probably have to pay someone to host your site. Web hosts provide a piece of their server for your site’s files and provide other services, like allowing you to create email addresses that are associated with your domain name (such as yourname@yourdomain.com).

There are hundreds of companies that provide Web site hosting. Most charge a monthly fee that depends on the services they offer. Some offer free Web hosting in exchange for advertising from your site.
