As we all know that now everything is based on IT and if we want to explore our business than we must take the help of IT. For expanding our business globally we need a website to make our website accessible via the World Wide Web we need to host our website.

So let’s know about the Web Hosting their types and hosting providers:-

Web hosting

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.

Web hosting services are various types their types are as:-

Free hosting

Free web hosting is best for small sites with low traffic, like personal sites. It is not recommended for high traffic or for real business. Technical support is often limited, and technical options are few.

In free hosting services we cannot use our own domain name at a free site. we have to use a name provided by our host like http://www.freesite.com/users/~yoursite.htm. This is hard to type, hard to remember, and not very professional.

Shared (Virtual) Hosting

Shared hosting is very cost effective. With shared hosting, our website gets its own domain name and is hosted on a powerful server along with maybe 100 other websites Shared solutions often offer multiple software solutions like e-mail, database, and different editing options. Technical support tends to be good.

Dedicated Hosting

With dedicated hosting, your website is hosted on a dedicated server. Dedicated hosting is the most expensive option. This option is best suited for large websites with high traffic, and websites that use special software. You should expect dedicated hosting to be very powerful and secure, with almost unlimited software solutions.

Collocated Hosting

Collocation means “co-location”. Collocated hosting lets you place your own web server on the premises (locations) of a service provider. This is pretty much the same as running your own server in your own office, only that it is located at a place better designed for it. Most likely an ISP will have dedicated resources like high-security against fire and vandalism, regulated backup power, dedicated Internet connections and more.
