Hello,

I don't have one specifically crafted, but I think it would be good to start with the SANS website below.  They provided several policy templates.  If you choose Internet security policy template, I think in that list, the Internet DMZ equipment policy might be the closest fit as web hosts are in the DMZ.

Most policies around 3rd party hosting are allow or deny. If there is an allow 3rd party hosting of your companies data, then you need a procedure or an already approved vendor of the hosting... It makes it much easier if you already vet and approve one vendor rather than have a policy that allows users to pick anyone using wordpress for instance... wordpress is often a poor choice security wise.

What exactly do you expect a web-hosting policy to say?

Here is a great policy by a web hosting company. you should be able to get some great info from it and use it for your own.

Please remember not to copy and use it in it's entirety. It is that company's document.
