A Web host
is in the business of providing server
space, Web services and file maintenance for Web sites controlled by individuals or companies that do not have their own Web servers
. Many ISPs
, such as America Online, will allow subscribers a small amount of server space to host
a personal Web page. Other commercial ISPs will charge the user a fee depending on the complexity of the site being hosted.
