A web hosting contract is one of the most important types of electronic contract, as it governs the relationship between the web hosting contractor and the user. The web hosting contractor undertakes storage of data and information for clients and provides the technical means to enable them to access this storage online. In this case, the web hosting provider acts as a neutral intermediary in the transmission of information, without being responsible for its content, although it is responsible for any breach of the contract, or the hosting of illegal content.
