A host or ISP is an Internet company that serves (uploads) up your website code to the Internet, similar to how a television show is sent out by a broadcaster.

For example, you may buy a telephone but if that telephone is not hooked up to your local phone company, you will not be able to speak to anybody. The same goes with a website.
