Web Hosting Types
A webhosting service is a type of internet hosting service which allow businesses and companies to provide their own websites accessible via the world wide web. Webhosting companies provide space on a server they own for use by their clients as well as providing Internet connectivity normally in a datacenter. Webhosts can also provide data center space and connectivity to the Internet for servers they do not own to be located in their data center called colocation. There are different types of webhosting services. In shared webhosting, your site is placed on the same server as many other sites, ranging from a few hundred sites to thousands of websites. All sites may share a common pool of server resources like RAM and CPU. In reseller webhosting, you can resell the webspace you bought to clients for hosting their websites. In dedicated webhosting service, the user gets his or her own web server and gains full control over it - root access in case of linux hosting and administrator access in case of windows hosting.
