Web hosting, such as it is, can be spread out into three major categories.
- Shared or virtual
The most common of the three is shared, which is when you have an account with a hosting company to which you pay a monthly or yearly fee. Think Godaddy. This nets you a pre-determined amount of space and a “host” of other goodies. Often, each shared hosting account allows you to host one domain at a time, with a single control panel. They are low on frills but as long as demand necessitates them, they will still be around.
