Should I use Thanks for being here or Thanks to be here? I have read that the first one is correct. However, I am not sure about these usages. Please tell me which one is correct and why it is correct.

'Thanks for being here' is correct. 'Being' is a verb in this case. 'Thanks to' would be followed by a noun e.g. 'Thanks to God' or 'Thanks to modern technology'
