virtual host

Alternatively referred to as an IPP (Internet Presence Provider), vhost is short for virtual host and is a remote host computer that is run and maintained by another company. By having another company or ISP run and maintain the computers that host the files, the web developer can spend less time with maintenance, setup, upgrading, and security.
