Forms of hosting solutions

A hosting service concerns saving and/or sharing specific web content on a hosting server managed by a hosting supplier. There are various categories of hosting services utilized for various goals, so let's take a glimpse at these. In this way, you can pick what you need, depending on whether you wish to run a site, mail addresses, or to share files with comrades and colleagues.

- File hosting: a solution made available by given hosts, which lets you share immense files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived documents, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its single objective is to share files, since it does not support web site uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either get a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to examine a record of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to load .html or .php web page files in your web browser. Free file storage services are frequently supported by showing advertisements next to the download links, while a timer compels you to await a certain amount of time to view them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you possess a paid file storage account, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download straight away, and also there is no restriction as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

At the moment, with the help of the cPanel hosting providers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more voguish "cloud hosting". This is a completely amiss interpretation of the real denotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting system would allot the tasks at hand between independent packs of web servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending different website hosting services (electronic mail, disk space, statistics, DNS, databases, Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is just a variety of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; some firms offer a hosting service for images solely. This hosting kind is appropriate if you wish to share a large amount of pics with buddies or acquaintances since the solution is commonly free of charge. You will receive a randomly generated link for each picture or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be utilized for sites.

- E-mail hosting: a service committed to handling your email mailbox accounts. Some distributors provide webspace hosting services for web sites, but do not provide an e-mail service. If you wish to manage a mail address with your domain name but do not want to own a website, then the email hosting solution is what you need. You can create e-mail address accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domains. The email hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service enables you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a given video, or you can embed the video file in your website that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of availing of this method in lieu of uploading the video in a hosting account is that the video brings about a particular amount of central processing unit load, so with a few video files and several hundred viewers, you may have difficulty with your web hosting supplies. Embedding the video will permit you to have as many video files as you want to without bothering about system reserves.

- Web site hosting: this is the solution that you require if you wish to have a site. To some extent, it incorporates all of the abovementioned hosting kinds since, along with your web pages, you can also host pictures and files, you can have databases and mails, upload video clips, etc. At Exclusive Hosting, for instance, you can have a glance at web hosting and dedicated server hosting solutions that permit you to get all of the aforesaid services in a single location. There may be limitations based on the kind of hosting service that you've chosen - a free hosting plan, a paid shared hosting package, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web page hosting package may be better or worse in comparison with the standard e-mail/file/video/image hosting packages that are created for specific web content only.
