Web Hosting Services Definition

A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web. Web hosts are companies that provide space on a server owned or leased for use by clients, as well as providing Internet connectivity, typically in a data center. Web hosts can also provide data center space and connectivity to the Internet for other servers located in their data center, called colocation, also known as Housing in Latin America or France.

Free web hosting service

Free web hosting service: offered by different companies with limited services, sometimes supported by advertisements, and often limited when compared to paid hosting.

Shared web hosting service

Shared web hosting service: one's website is placed on the same server as many other sites, ranging from a few sites to hundreds of websites.

Reseller web hosting

Allows clients to become web hosts themselves. Resellers could function, under any combination of types of hosting, depending on who they are affiliated with as a reseller.

Virtual Dedicated Server

Also known as a Virtual Private Server (VPS), divides server resources into virtual servers, where resources can be allocated that does not directly reflect the underlying hardware.

Dedicated hosting service

Dedicated hosting service: the user gets his or her own Web server and gains full control over it (user has root access for Linux/administrator access for Windows)

The most basic is web page and small-scale file hosting, where files can be uploaded via File Transfer Protocol (FTP) or a Web interface. The files are usually delivered to the Web "as is" or with minimal processing. Many Internet service providers (ISPs) offer this service free to subscribers.

Types of hosting

What caused me some confusion when I started out was differentiating between “host (wikipedia definition)” and “hosting package”, they are used somewhat interchangably. Most hosts offer multiple packages which may be wildly different.
