5 Features That Make A2 Hosting An Easy-To-Use Web Hosting Provider 

"When I first became interested in started a website a few years back, I thought I needed to pay a few dollars for a domain name and I could put up my site. When I spoke to a co-worker about my plans to start a website, she mentioned that I would also need web hosting. This was a shock to me! 

Why did I need web hosting? A website is basically just a file. If you keep the website on your computer, pretty much the only person who is going to see the website is you. That wouldn't have been a very good way to get my word out via my website. In order to make a website visible across the internet, you need a domain name and you will need to rent space on a computer (server) that can store and serve your files across the internet so your audience can view them. That's where a web hosting company comes into play." -Quote from Brad Litwin the Marketing Manager for A2 Hosting.
