The role of a host, what is a web host
The purpose of this guide is to explain what a web host is and what its role is.
A web host (or internet host) is an entity which aims to provide Internet users with websites designed and managed by third parties (Wikipedia, July 2015).
As Web and Email host, Infomaniak's main activities are installing, securing, and updating servers to protect them from malicious attacks. We also take care to constantly improve our web interfaces (the Admin Console) and infrastructure based on customer feedback, the latest technologies, and market needs. Finally, we are also here to support our customers in the various stages of using our products.
However, we do not intervene on the content of servers or developing Web sites. Indeed, the creation or maintenance of a website is a different trade, although it is related to our business because we offer the tools and services that a webmaster uses to create websites.
Infomaniak is also a registrar ( ), and we offer the vast majority of domain extensions at attractive prices (Find out more).
