A web hosting service is a service that allows individuals and organizations website to be accessible via the world wide web. The web host allocates space for customers to showcase their websites on computer servers that are connected to the Internet and the computers around the world can view your website 24/7. You can be reached by your website address, which is based on the server’s address.
There are thousands of web hosting services available today, ranging from free services with limited options, like the one I am using on this website, to expensive web hosting services, wherein you have to pay certain amount. The different types of web hosting services are Free Web Hosting, Paid Hosting, Internet Service Provider (ISP), Domain Hosting, Direct Internet Access and Collocation.
If you are undecided on which web site host to choose, there are websites that compares web hosting services. They rank the web site hosting services based on best price-value ratio, uptime, key features, bonus features, customer support, past and current user feedbacks, user-friendliness and hosting awards have been taken into account as well. However, which host you choose depends on how you plan to use your website and how much you want to spend. The comparisons could help you decide on which host to choose though based on reliability and consistency.
