Classes of hosting solutions

A hosting solution involves saving and/or sharing specific web content on a hosting server hosted by a website hosting company. There are various varieties of hosting services utilized for various goals, so let's have a peek at them. In this way, you can elect what you need, based on whether you desire to own a website, e-mail box accounts, or to share files with friends and colleagues.

- File hosting: a solution offered by given firms, which allows you to share huge files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived documents, etc. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only objective is to share files, since it does not offer web page uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either get an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to read a table of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to view .html or .php web site files in your browser. Free-of-charge file storage plans are frequently supported by showing ads beside the download links, while a timer forces you to wait for a specific interval of time to see them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you purchase a paid file storage plan, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download at once, and also there is no limit when it comes to the download speed or the file size.

These days, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting corporations, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more trendy "cloud hosting". This is a thoroughly mistaken interpretation of the literal meaning of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting system would share the load between separate packs of hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending miscellaneous site hosting services (email, disk storage, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is simply a brand of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; some companies offer a hosting solution for pictures solely. This hosting variant is appropriate if you wish to share a great amount of pics with comrades or partners since the solution is generally free. You will get a random link for each picture or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file storage service, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the solution cannot be used for web pages.

- E-mail hosting: a solution dedicated to handling your email box accounts. Some corporations offer website hosting services for sites, but do not provide an email service. If you desire to open a mail address with your domain name but do not desire to have a site, then the email hosting service is what you need. You can create email address accounts and administer them, but there will be no web service for the domains. The e-mail hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service enables you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a given video clip, or you can embed the video clip in your web site that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of utilizing this approach instead of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video file generates a particular amount of central processing unit load, so with several videos and a few hundred website viewers, you may have a hard time with your hosting reserves. Embedding the video clip will permit you to keep as many video files as you want without hassling about system quotas.

- Web site hosting: this is the service that you need if you would like to possess a web site. To some extent, it contains all of the aforesaid hosting sorts since, along with your web pages, you can also host pics and files, you can create databases and e-mail box accounts, upload video clips, etc. At NETHOST23, for example, you can have a glance at web hosting and dedicated web hosting accounts that allow you to get all of the aforementioned services in one single location. There may be restrictions based on the kind of hosting service that you've opted for - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting plan, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your web page hosting package may be better or worse juxtaposed to the standard email/file/video/image hosting packages that are intended for particular content exclusively.
