How to Differentiate Between a Web Server and Web Host

If you are trying to differentiate between a web server and web host, here a few points that can help you understand the difference between the two. A web server is an information providing resource from where you can get access to the kind of information you are looking for. This is provided by the server network.

A web hosting service, on the other hand, is one of the types of internet hosting service. It is used to connect the websites of companies and individuals to the World Wide Web network so that the website can be accessed and used by those who want to get information from the site.

Web server is a high-tech machine or a kind of data center from where you can have easy access to all the information you need. The web server is connected to the browser through a trans-coder. You can visualize web servers as computers that offer web pages. Every individual web server comes with a unique IP address and domain name. If you type the name of a specific URL, the server searches for that URL on the internet, fetches it and delivers it to your web browser. All these activity is done within a matter of a few seconds.

Web host is defined as the company offering web hosting service. They are primarily responsible for hosting the website on a server. A web host can sell or rent the server machine and ensures that it runs smoothly and efficiently. It is akin to software that powers a computer but does it on a larger scale. To complete the functional part of a website, you will also need a domain name.

Web servers can be of different types such as proxy servers, mail servers, applications servers and others. Web host types are shared host, dedicated host, free host and reseller host among others.
