Where are Websites Located?

Visiting a “website” implies the act of going to a certain location even though technically the visitor stays behind a computer or phone the entire time.

So where exactly are sites located?

Most websites are “hosted” by companies with ultra-sophisticated hardware that enable quick connections to a vast pool of data that comes from all over the world.  Clients are able to create sites and house them on the servers these companies maintain, giving anyone the opportunity to become a webmaster without all the expensive gear.

It’s almost like artists who buy paint and canvas in order to focus on creativity as opposed to making it all themselves from scratch. 

Check out this list of some popular web hosting companies:
