Web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that provides individuals, organizations and users with online systems for storing information, images, video, or any content accessible via the Web. Web hosts are companies that provide space on a server they own for use by their 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 servers they do not own to be located in their data center.
Free web hosting service: is free, (sometimes) advertisement-supported web hosting, and is extremely limited when compared to paid hosting.
Shared web hosting service: one’s Web site is placed on the same server as several hundred other sites. These are somewhat restricted to what can be done.
Dedicated web hosting service: involves getting your own web server with full control over it (root access for Linux/administrator access for Windows)
Colocation web hosting service: provides physical space that your server takes up and the hosting company takes care about bandwidth/data center.
Reseller web hosting: allows clients to become web hosts themselves.
File hosting service: is a kind of web hosting service optimized for hosting large files.
