I'm a little confused about web hosting - I'm starting a blog and never knew that you had to have a host site for your website to live in, thought it was just a domain and go.
what web hosts do you use or regard as excellent and which ones shouldn't I really bother with?
I'm currently eyeing Bluehost because of it's inexpensiveness but other than that I'm not really sure what it does outside of my site living there.
If someone could also throw in a simple explanation of what a web host is and what it's supposed to do, I'd be very grateful.
Thanks in advance
