Kinds of hosting solutions

A hosting solution refers to hoarding and/or sharing given content on a web server run by a website hosting provider. There are different types of hosting services utilized for different ends, so let's take a glimpse at these. Doing so, you can decide what you need, depending on whether you'd like to own a web portal, email aliases, or to share files with chums and associates.

- File hosting: a solution made available by various web hosts, which lets you share bulky files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived documents, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its only function is to share files, since it does not support 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 explore a table of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to open .html or .php website files in your web browser. Free-of-charge file hosting services often involve adverts beside the download links, while a timer makes you wait for a certain spell of time to see them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you have a paid file hosting package, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, and also there is no limit as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

These days, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting providers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more stylish "cloud hosting". This is a completely untrue interpretation of the real meaning of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting environment would divide the load between autonomous bunches of web servers in a cluster, which are devoted to serving different web site hosting services (electronic mail, web space, statistics, DNS, databases, site hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is just a brand of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; given providers provide a hosting service for images exclusively. This hosting type is suitable if you wish to share a great amount of images with mates or acquaintances since the service is commonly free of cost. 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 supported, so the solution cannot be used for web pages.

- E-mail hosting: a service devoted to administering your email address accounts. Some companies provide web space hosting services for websites, but do not offer an email service. If you desire to launch an email address with your domain name but do not desire to run a site, then the email hosting service is what you require. You can create electronic mail accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting service for the domains. The e-mail hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.

- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a particular 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 in a hosting account is that the video clip generates a given amount of CPU load, so with a bunch of video clips and a few hundred website viewers, you may have difficulty with your web space hosting resources. Embedding the video will permit you to keep as many video clips as you want without worrying about system supplies.

- Website hosting: this is the solution that you require if you want to possess a site. To some degree, it comprises all of the abovementioned hosting kinds since, along with your web pages, you can also host pictures and files, you can run databases and mail address accounts, upload videos, and so on. At 50Webs Web Hosting, for instance, you can have a look at web hosting and dedicated server hosting plans that allow you to have all of the aforesaid solutions in one location. There may be limits depending on the type of hosting service that you've selected - a free hosting plan, a paid shared hosting package, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your web hosting package may be better or worse in comparison with the standard email/file/video/image hosting packages that are planned for particular web content only.
