Kinds of hosting solutions

A hosting service involves saving and/or sharing particular web content on a web hosting server handled by a website hosting supplier. There are different forms of hosting services used for various goals, so let's take a gaze at these. In that way, you can decide what you want, based on whether you desire to establish a web portal, email address accounts, or to share files with buddies and colleagues.

- File hosting: a solution provided by given hosts, which enables you to share large files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived documents, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole designation is to share files, since it does not offer site 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 explore a list of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to open .html or .php web page files in your web browser. Free file storage solutions are frequently supported by exhibiting advertisements beside the download links, while a timer forces you to await a particular span of time to view them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you run a paid file storage package, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download right away, and also there is no limit when it comes to the download speed or the file size.

These days, with the help of the cPanel hosting suppliers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more voguish "cloud hosting". This is a totally imprecise interpretation of the literal definition of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting system would divide the load between different groups of hosting servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending miscellaneous site hosting services (electronic mail, web space, stats, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is simply a variety of a disk storage hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; specific companies provide a hosting solution for images solely. This hosting type is appropriate if you wish to share a vast quantity of images with buddies or associates since the service is typically free of charge. You will obtain a random link for every image 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.

- Email hosting: a solution devoted to tackling your mailbox accounts. Some firms offer web page hosting solutions for web sites, but do not provide an email hosting solution. If you desire to set up an email address with your domain name but do not desire to have a website, then the email hosting service is what you need. You can create email mailbox accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting service for the domains. The email hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.

- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a given video clip, or you can embed the video file in your web page that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of utilizing this method instead of uploading the video clip in a web hosting account is that the video clip brings about a given amount of CPU load, so with a few video clips and several hundred site viewers, you may have difficulty with your web hosting reserves. Embedding the video file will allow you to keep as many video files as you would like without hassling about system resources.

- Web hosting: this is the solution that you need if you want to own a website. To some degree, it involves all of the abovementioned hosting kinds since, along with your web sites, you can also host pics and files, you can set up databases and email addresses, upload video clips, and so on. At Exclusive Hosting, for example, you can examine web hosting and dedicated web server hosting plans that allow you to get all of the aforementioned solutions in a single place. There may be limitations based on the sort of hosting service that you've opted for - a free hosting plan, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your webspace hosting package may be better or worse compared with the routine e-mail/file/video/image hosting packages that are tailored for specific content only.
