Localhost is simple means This Computer.

When you type a URL into your pc browser, you are essentially connecting to a “host” computer somewhere else in the world. This computer serves you the web page that you requested.

Same way if you type “localhost” into your browser, however, then your browser will know that you want to connect to the computer you are currently using. If your computer is running web server software like XAMP / WAMP etc., then your browser will be served a web page by your own computer, which is otherwise known as the localhost. Every computer connected to the internet has an IP address and your localhost has one too. Typically the IP address is 127.0.0.1.

Localhost is often used for testing and development. When a developer installs XAMP, WAMP, LAMP, or MAMP etc software stack on their personal computer, then they will typically type “localhost” into their browser in order to pull up their website. Local server environments can speed up the development time. It is also great for learning purposes.

Another common usage of localhost is when you are trying to connect to your MySQL database.

The difference between Localhost and Live servers?

Localhost: refers to the term ‘using on your computer offline’, when you are not using internet connection and browsing offline then your server-side code is treated as localhost.
On the other hand Live Server: refers to a company that offers hosting services for your website with the help of Internet, which to view your website page globally,  Your website resides on the hosting disk space, and bandwidth is managed by them. To run your site all steps are maintained by web hosting providers.
