🏠 Web Hosting Services

Web Hosting

A web host is a server that hosts the files of your website, and serves them when someone visits your site. Because we are creating sites that are just simple HTML & CSS files, and maybe some images or other assets, our websites are static, so the type of web hosting service we need is called static hosting. Below are a few options for static hosting services, along with some pros and cons of each one; this will be expanded as we gather more information.


This is the web host that we are using in class. It is a great service to start out on because they provide a web interface for editing your HTML and CSS files, but you can also easily download your whole site and move it to another service if you'd like.



Github Pages

With a bit of technical know-how, it is possible to publish a static website through Microsoft's GitHub.
