Web hosting services allow the user to store website files on the internet. Generally web hosting tools don't provide the users with an interface for developing a Website. Web hosting tools are also distinct from File Sharing services in that the files to be hosted are generally for viewing by a Web Browser in form of a website.

There are many web hosting solutions to choose from online, each with their own advantages. Generally for web hosting it is possible to find services that are free or inexpensive for small scale websites, with larger, more complex websites requiring larger paid services.
