I am in the process of getting my business approved, however I am always being asked "what is a webhosting business?" Most of these people don't know a thing about computers, so I'm having a hard time finding a clear, professional way to explain it to them. Any suggestions or definitions would be greatly appreciated.
A pretty good definition of web hosting from Wikipedia,
Web hosting is a service that provides internet users with online systems for storing information, images, video, or any content accessible via the web. Web-hosting is often provided as part of a general internet access plan...
If you are speaking with business oriented people this definition should be great for them. If you're speaking to the common joe off the street about web hosting, it probably isn't the best.
