    Lets say you want to put up your own web site. But at home, you don't have a static IP address and you don't want your PC tied up all the time and you don't want to keep it turned on all the time... these are all reasons why you might want to go to a "Hosting" service provider.  A hosting service provider will usually have many servers online all the time and for a reasonable feel they will rent you a space on a server to host your website. Sometimes, for security reasons, they might rent you a virtual server. This is more expensive but it gives you more flexibility and control and some isolation from what other users might do.
