What does webhosting mean?
Webhosting refers to the provision of storage space (webspace) for the provision of websites. The people who create the website fill this webspace with different content, including images, videos, files, and fonts. Websites are similar to text documents that can be made available and accessed on the Internet. The content of the websites must be saved so that we can access them from anywhere at any time. However, this storage does not take place on a local computer, but on a high-performance server that is connected to the Internet around the clock. In this way, the created website remains continuously available online and the content can be accessed by users worldwide. RWTH Aachen University and FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences cooperate to provide webspace to institutes and student associations as webhosting providers.
