As a result you will buy or more commonly rent space on a server from a website hosting company to give your website a home. A website server is basically a large computer operating system.

Large Businesses Web Hosting:
Self hosting can mean a few things. The most basic form of self hosting is when a website is housed on your own server. In most instances this option would be for large businesses who have the money to invest in experts with the knowledge. As well as the skill set, to set up all of the required services within the server. Then perform security updates when required and troubleshoot when errors occur that could compromise the website security or functionality.
