Kinds of hosting solutions

A hosting service is associated with stashing and/or sharing specific web content on a web hosting server administered by a website hosting provider. There are various varieties of hosting services used for different ends, so let's survey them. Doing so, you can decide what you need, based on whether you'd like to establish a web page, email addresses, or to share files with mates and colleagues.

- File hosting: a service distributed by given file storage providers, which permits you to share enormous files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived files, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its only goal is to share files, since it does not support site uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either obtain an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to survey a record of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to see .html or .php web files in your web browser. Free-of-cost file hosting solutions are often supported by displaying adverts by the download links, while a timer compels you to wait for a particular spell of time to view them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you own a paid file storage package, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download straight away, and also there is no limit when it comes to the download speed or the file size.

Nowadays, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting suppliers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more faddish "cloud hosting". This is a totally inapt explanation of the actual meaning of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting environment would assign the tasks at hand between individual sets of web servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving various site hosting services (mail, disk storage, stats, DNS, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is only a kind of a disk space hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; given corporations provide a hosting service for images only. This hosting variant is appropriate if you want to share a great amount of images with buddies or partners since the service is generally free. You will obtain a random link for each and every image or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the solution cannot be utilized for sites.

- E-mail hosting: a service dedicated to tackling your electronic mail accounts. Some distributors offer website hosting solutions for web pages, but do not provide an email solution. If you desire to get a mail address with your domain name but do not desire to run a site, then the email hosting solution is what you require. You can open e-mail box accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting service for the domains. The e-mail hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.

- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a certain video clip, or you can embed the video clip in your website that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of utilizing this method in lieu of uploading the video clip in a hosting account is that the video produces a certain amount of CPU load, so with a handful of video files and a few hundred website visitors, you may have trouble with your webspace hosting resources. Embedding the video file will enable you to run as many video files as you would like without worrying about system supplies.

- Web page hosting: this is the solution that you need if you wish to own a website. To a certain extent, it encompasses all of the abovementioned hosting types since, along with your sites, you can also host images and files, you can set up databases and mail address accounts, upload video files, etc. At 100WebSpace, for example, you can have a glimpse at web hosting and dedicated hosting solutions that allow you to get all of the aforesaid services in one place. There may be restrictions based on the sort of hosting service that you've settled on - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your hosting account may be better or worse compared with the regular email/file/video/image hosting packages that are designed for particular content only.
