Hosting is something like putting all your website information on the internet for example your website posts,images,files and folder from your personal computer to the web server.

Or in simple terms hosting is like putting your website from your pc to the computer over internet which is on 24/7 so that it handles any request any time and serve your website as a response and hence your website is accessible anytime anywhere.
