Hosting is managing the server where the website itself sits, where all of the images, text, and any programming that is needed to run the website. All that needs to sit on a computer somewhere hence it's not much different than your computer at home, just a bigger, faster, and more powerful computer with more storage space available. It that could be sitting anywhere in the world and is connected to a high speed connection. It's similar to holding information for somebody else. Most web designers cannot host information themselves because they don't have a large enough server, so they will employ a hosting company who can store all the data and serve it out to all of the different computer users when they come to the website asking for data.
