everyone understands that hosting could not exist without the Worldwide Internet. the creation of this miracle was preceded by more than 50 years of history. Back in the early 50s of the last century, the US government developed a project to create a unified system for transmitting and storing information. Later, one brilliant man decided that the system of providing public access to information could be available all over the world and at the end of the 80s presented to the world an information exchange system, which is now known as the World Wide Web - WWW

Web hosting today is a multibillion-dollar industry, it is a huge business in which only the strongest of that world survive. However, about 15 years ago, attempts to create such a unit as a web hosting provider were just emerging in the hosting services market.
This happened in the USA and that is why American hosting today is an order of magnitude ahead of all other providers in terms of quality of service and provision of cheap hosting.

How hosting appeared
I think everyone understands that hosting could not exist without the Worldwide Internet. However, the creation of that miracle was preceded by more than 50 years of history. Back in the early 50s of the last century, the US government developed a project to create a unified system for transmitting and storing information.
Initially, the project was developed for military purposes and was used only in the secret services of the state and in the Ministry of Defense. Later, one brilliant man decided that the system of providing public access to information could be available all over the world and in the late 80s introduced the world to the information exchange system, which is now known as the World Wide Web - WWW (World Wide Web).

Initially, the information on the Internet was very scarce, since only those companies that were rich enough to buy expensive equipment and servers were engaged in its placement.
Posting information on the Internet brought more and more benefits every year, as there were more and more Internet users. Some enterprising businessmen realized that the purchase of servers can pay off with a vengeance if you provide limited space on the server for rent to other businessmen. They felt that good money could be made on this, because the future belongs to the Internet space. In that they were not mistaken.

How American hosting developed in the last century
The first stage in the development of web  hosting was the lifting of restrictions on advertising on the Internet, which occurred in 1991. This led to a rapid growth of advertising messages and sites, for which entrepreneurs were willing to pay a lot of money.

The next step towards the development of the Internet service provider was the appearance of the world's first Internet browser (Internet viewer program) NCSA Mosaic with a graphical user interface. This development by Mark Anderssen and Eric Bean was carried out on the basis of the University of Illinois USA. And again America is ahead of the whole planet. Interestingly, the famous Internet Explorer web browser was based on the NCSA Mosaic source code.

And finally, the emergence of web hosting as a web server service was developed with the introduction of the term Internet Service Provider. This concept referred to companies that provided Internet connection services via modems. Although that was their main task, they also provided servers for rent.

Today, everyone uses the Internet and some do not even think that watching an interesting page on the web is the work of many people and a lot of money. Hosting providers around the world work to ensure that you receive information or communicate in real time. Many will argue whose hosting is better. But no one will argue that the USA is the founder of the development of such a service as web hosting, and that is why I will argue that American hosting is the best web hosting in the world.

American Hosting today
When we talk about figure skating, we mean Russia, when we talk about football, we mean England, when we talk about hockey, we mean Canada, when we talk about web hosting, we mean the USA. Needless to say, the founder of such a concept as a hosting provider in the USA is still the leader.
