Once of the first steps you need to take when putting up your own website, or blog, is web hosting. A web host is a service that exists online that servers your website to users on the internet. The backend to this service is thousands and thousands of powerful computers that around the clock sending the pages to users that request them. It sounds complex but is quite simple.
How does it work? When you create your own website, each page, at its most basic is a single file and files for each image that sits on the web host. When you visit a website, the host sends your browser the files, and the browser displays the page on screen. Web applications and sites like Facebook are much more complex but essentially function the same.
There are different kinds of web hosts. Each operate at various price points that deal with different levels of complexity. You get services that do almost everything for you, while others give the kind of granularity that a complex website needs.
The most important step, if you are just getting started, is to get the simplest possible web host and service. With this you will get a broader understanding of everything involved and will give you the building blocks needed to take your next steps
