Web hosting technology has been causing some controversy lately as [[Web.com]] claims that it holds patent rights to the hosting technology with its 19 patents.  Hostopia, a large wholesale host, recently purchased a license to use that technology from web.com for 10% of retail revenues ([http://biz.yahoo.com/pz/060718/102209.html source]).  Web.com recently sued [[Godaddy]] as well for similar patent infringement ([http://www.thestreet.com/_mktw/tech/internet/10293025.html source]).

===Full-featured hosting===
 
 
 
Full-featured hosting services include:
 
* [[Dedicated hosting service]], where the hosting service owns and manages the machine, leasing full control to the client
 
* [[Virtual private server]], in which [[virtualization]] technology is employed in order to allow multiple logical servers to run on a single physical server - thus the customer receives a [http://www.colocationprovider.org/whatisadedicatedserver.htm dedicated server] and yet the hosting company cuts costs by selling a single physical server to multiple customers.
 
* [[Colocation centre|Colocation facilities]], which provide just the Internet connection and climate control, but let the client do his own [[system administration]]; the most expensive
 
 
 
===Other===
 
Limited or application-specific hosting services include:
 
* [[Web hosting service]]
 
* [[E-mail hosting service]]
 
* [[DNS hosting service]]
 
* [[Game server]]s
 
* [[Wiki farm]]s
