Hosting is the process of making a website accessible 24/7 to users over the internet. HTML and CSS files are stored on a web server that is connected to the internet usually with a fast connection with the rest of the world wide web. The web server displays the web pages to users who request them.
HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is a language used to create the structure and design of web pages. HTML lays out where text, images, videos, and links show up on the web page in a users browser.
CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is a style sheet language used to control the presentation of HTML documents. It is used to define the layout, colors, fonts, and other visual aspects of web pages.
Static websites are those that are created using only HTML and CSS and do not require server-side processing. They are simple and fast, but not suitable for websites that require frequent updates or dynamic content.
