H

hit
  A hit is a request for a file on a web server - any request for any file, so opening one HTML page which contains 10 images and 1 Flash animation will register as 12 hits (1 HTML file + 10 + 1). Hits are not the same as visits, contrary to what some web marketing schemes would imply. 10,000 hits may sound impressive, but if every page loads 100 images then 10,000 hits translates to less than 100 actual visitors.

host
  In order for your web site to be visible to the world, it must be "hosted" on a web server. The host is the company that provides the web server.

You could set up your own hosting server, but that is costly and time-consuming compared to hosting your web site with a third-party host.

See http://www.w3schools.com/hosting/host_intro.asp for a more detailed explanation.
