Varieties of hosting solutions

A hosting solution suggests saving and/or sharing particular content on a server administered by a web hosting provider. There are various groups of hosting services used for different goals, so let's take a peek at these. In this way, you can choose what you want, depending on whether you desire to have a site, emails, or to share files with pals and colleagues.

- File hosting: a solution distributed by certain companies, which permits you to share immense files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archives, etc. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only purpose is to share files, since it does not offer website uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either get an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to read a list 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 services frequently include adverts next to the download links, while a timer compels you to wait for a given amount of time to view them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you have a paid file hosting package, there are no limitations 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.

Nowadays, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting vendors, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modern "cloud hosting". This is a totally inapt interpretation of the literal definition of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting system would allot the workload between separate hosts of web servers in a cluster, which are committed to serving miscellaneous web site hosting services (email, storage space, stats, DNS, databases, website hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is only a brand of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: close to file hosting; given corporations offer a hosting solution for pictures solely. This hosting kind is suitable if you desire to share a vast amount of pics with chums or partners since the service is typically free. You will receive a randomly generated link for each and every image or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the service cannot be utilized for web pages.

- E-mail hosting: a service devoted to taking care of your e-mail address accounts. Some distributors provide webspace hosting services for web pages, but do not supply an e-mail hosting service. If you desire to create a mail address with your domain name but do not wish to keep a site, then the email hosting service is what you want. You can open mailbox accounts and administer them, but there will be no web solution for the domains. The e-mail hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.

- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a certain video clip, or you can embed the video file in your website that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of utilizing this method instead of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video file produces a specific amount of central processing unit load, so with a few videos and several hundred website visitors, you may have difficulty with your site hosting resources. Embedding the video file will allow you to administer as many video files as you desire without hassling about system supplies.

- Web page hosting: this is the solution that you require if you want to possess a website. To a certain degree, it includes all of the abovementioned hosting categories since, along with your sites, you can also host pics and files, you can keep databases and mail accounts, upload videos, and so on. At Exclusive Hosting, for example, you can have a look at web hosting and dedicated server hosting solutions that enable you to have all of the abovementioned services in a single location. There may be restrictions based on the sort of hosting solution that you've opted for - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting package, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your webspace hosting account may be better or worse compared with the standard e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are created for particular web content only.
