# Hosting Servers
Hosting servers store and deliver websites, applications or other online content. They provide a storage space for all the files and data that make up your online content. When someone wants to access your website or use your online service, their browser sends a request to the hosting server. The server retrieves the necessary files and sends them back to the user's browser, which displays the website or application. Hosting servers ensure your website or application is available to people at all times.
