The scope of services in a Web hosting entirely depends on the providers. But there are some common services like the web page and small-sized file hosting, wherein files are uploaded via FTP (File Transfer Protocol) or Web interface. The files are normally delivered to the Web either “as is” or with nominal processing. Most Internet Service Providers (ISPs) provides this service to their clients free-of-cost. Individual clients or enterprises may get their Web page hosted by alternative hosting services providers
. Usually, hosts do not charge for hosting personal Websites. Also, a personal Website hosting is usually advertisement-sponsored or low-cost, whereas, an business Website hosting
, on the other hand, requires huge expenditure based on the type and size of the Website.
While a single page hosting is usually sufficient for a personal Webpage, a business Website having multiple pages, database and functionality require a comprehensive hosting package.
