    A server refers to a specific machine, a host may also refer to an organization that provides a service over the Internet. For example, a web host (or web hosting company) maintains multiple web servers and provides web hosting services for clients.

    Hosting can be explained by understanding the need of acquisition of space in the server to store the web pages.

    The web pages are stored in a server so that the website can be accessed through the internet. A web hosting service is a kind of service that makes a website available on the internet.

    Server, the term can be used in two contexts. In software, a server is used as an adjective for a server operating system.

    It is intended to run on server applications. In hardware, server is a special computer that has the ability to host websites and web based tools.
