The files and data for your website need to be stored somewhere. A hosting company needs to be paid for this service.
The role of a hosting company includes but is not limited to:
- Storing your website files and data
- Providing secure access to your files so they can be edited and updated
- Serving your files to visitors as fast as possible
- Protecting your website from malicious attacks and hacking
I offer a maintenance package which includes all hosting costs so you don't need to concern yourself with this
