A web hosting service is a set of hardware and software, which is necessary for hosting website files to make them available across Internet for large audience. Most larger website hosting providers have set of servers, accommodated in large data centre and connected to Internet through high-speed data connection.
Having only proper hardware is not enough, there must have also software for running website scripts and databases, monitoring of both hardware and software for optimal performance, responding to clients requests and maintaining readiness to fix any possible errors.
As a rule, the more sophisticated websites with higher number of visitors, the higher is the need for more server resources and bandwidth. For small websites there is possible to find free website hosting, sponsored by advertising. However, web hosting free option may have such resource limitations, that for enterprise level websites there is more practical to go for most common type of web server - fully managed shared hosting. As the name indicates, "shared" hosting is server, which is shared by many clients. Sharing server with other clients makes it comparatively affordable for everyone, who is interested to set up their own website.
