Web hosting can essentially be placed into three categories.
Shared or virtual
The most common is shared, where you have an account with a hosting company to whom you pay a monthly or yearly fee, in exchange for a pre-determined amount of space, bandwidth and a few extra’s like PHP or ASP support (or both), and CGI etc. Often, each shared hosting account allows you to host one domain at a time, with a single control panel — and that’s pretty much it. Most of the time, that’s all people require, and so the need for these types of hosting environments will always exist.
