Web hosting is a service that provides server space on the internet to store files and make them available to the web. The different types of web hosting are shared hosting, VPS, and Dedicated Hosting.
Shared hosting is when many websites are hosted off of the same server. This form of hosting is cheaper but puts more resources into use.
VPS hosting is when websites are hosted off of one server but on their own Virtual Private Server. This will give websites more resources use but is more expensive. This hosting is more expensive than shared hosting but has more resources to use. VPS hosting is where web hosting is in the middle price range.
Lastly, dedicated hosting is when a website has its own server space on a server. This will give websites more resources to use but is more expensive.
Each type of web hosting is suitable for different types of websites.
