Forms of hosting services

A hosting service appertains to stashing and/or sharing specific web content on a hosting server run by a website hosting vendor. There are various categories of hosting services utilized for various purposes, so let's take a glance at them. Doing so, you can choose what you want, on the basis of whether you desire to have a web page, electronic mail accounts, or to share files with mates and associates.

- File hosting: a service provided by particular web hosts, which permits you to share huge files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archives, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its sole purpose is to share files, since it does not offer web site uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either obtain an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to read a register of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to open .html or .php website files in your browser. Free-of-charge file hosting services are frequently supported by displaying ads next to the download links, while a timer makes you await a particular spell of time to perceive them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you buy a paid file storage package, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download at once, and also there is no restriction when it comes to the download speed or the file size.

Now, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting suppliers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more voguish "cloud hosting". This is a completely incorrect explanation of the actual meaning of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting system would allot the tasks at hand between individual bunches of hosting servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending various site hosting services (mail, disk storage, stats, DNS, databases, Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is merely a sort of a storage space hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; specific providers provide a hosting solution for pictures only. This hosting brand is appropriate if you would like to share an enormous number of pictures with chums or associates since the service is mostly free of charge. You will obtain a random link for each pic or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the solution cannot be utilized for sites.

- E-mail hosting: a service devoted to handling your e-mails. Some companies offer hosting services for websites, but do not supply an email hosting service. If you desire to keep a mail address with your domain name but do not want to own a web site, then the e-mail hosting service is what you require. You can open email mailbox accounts and administer them, but there will be no web service for the domains. The e-mail hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP servers.

- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a certain video clip, or you can embed the video in your site that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of availing of this approach instead of uploading the video in a hosting account is that the video file brings about a particular amount of CPU load, so with several video clips and a few hundred viewers, you may have difficulty with your hosting quotas. Embedding the video clip will enable you to use as many videos as you desire without bothering about system supplies.

- Web site hosting: this is the service that you need if you want to possess a website. To some degree, it encompasses all of the aforesaid hosting forms since, along with your web pages, you can also host pics and files, you can run databases and mail aliases, upload videos, and so on. At 50Webs Web Hosting, for example, you can take a glimpse at web hosting and dedicated web server hosting services that permit you to have all of the abovementioned services in one location. There may be limitations depending on the kind of hosting service that you've opted for - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your webspace hosting account may be better or worse compared to the standard email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are meant for particular web content solely.
