Web FAQs >> General Question About The Web

An ISP or Internet Service Provider is a company that sells access to the Internet to individuals and companies. Access can be through a dialup modem, through a digital ISDN connection, or through broadband technologies such as cable and ADSL.

Most ISP's will not allow you to host services such as web hosting on your computer, and if they do you can expect to pay premium prices for the bandwidth you need.

Web hosting and other services can therefore better be outsourced to a suitable web hosting company, either by the use of a shared hosting service, or by hiring a dedicated server in their datacenter.
