Kinds of hosting services

A hosting solution means stashing and/or sharing particular content on a server run by a hosting distributor. There are various classes of hosting services used for various aims, so let's take a glance at these. Thus, you can decide what you need, depending on whether you'd like to establish a web page, e-mails, or to share files with comrades and partners.

- File hosting: a solution delivered by particular firms, which permits you to share huge files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived files, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its single purpose is to share files, since it does not offer web page uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either obtain an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to explore a roster of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to view .html or .php web files in your browser. Free-of-cost file hosting packages frequently involve adverts beside the download links, while a timer forces you to wait for a particular spell of time to see them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you buy a paid file hosting plan, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download straight away, and also there is no restriction with regard to the download speed or the file size.

Nowadays, with the help of the cPanel hosting firms, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modish "cloud hosting". This is a thoroughly inappropriate explanation of the real definition of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting platform would allocate the load between individual packs of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving miscellaneous web hosting services (mail, disk space, stats, DNS, databases, web space hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting service is just a sort of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: close to file hosting; certain distributors offer a hosting service for pictures exclusively. This hosting variant is good if you wish to share a great quantity of pics with chums or associates since the solution is commonly 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 storage service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the solution cannot be utilized for web pages.

- E-mail hosting: a solution devoted to managing your mail address accounts. Some providers offer web hosting services for websites, but do not offer an e-mail service. If you want to set up an e-mail address with your domain name but do not desire to have a site, then the email hosting solution is what you need. You can set up email address accounts and manage them, but there will be no web solution for the domains. The email hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this solution enables you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a specific video file, or you can embed the video clip in your web site that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of availing of this approach in lieu of uploading the video in a web hosting account is that the video brings about a given amount of CPU load, so with a few video clips and several hundred website viewers, you may have a problem with your site hosting resources. Embedding the video clip will allow you to keep as many videos as you want without worrying about system supplies.

- Web page hosting: this is the solution that you require if you desire to possess a website. To a certain extent, it incorporates all of the abovementioned hosting varieties since, along with your web pages, you can also host pictures and files, you can run databases and mail addresses, upload video files, etc. At 100WebSpace, for example, you can take a peek at web hosting and dedicated web hosting accounts that permit you to get all of the abovementioned services in one location. There may be limits based on the type of hosting service that you've chosen - a free hosting plan, a paid shared hosting plan, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web hosting plan may be better or worse in comparison with the typical e-mail/file/video/image hosting packages that are made for specific web content exclusively.
