Classes of hosting services

A hosting service involves stockpiling and/or sharing certain content on a hosting server run by a website hosting company. There are various forms of hosting services utilized for various ends, so let's have a gaze at them. Doing so, you can elect what you want, on the basis of whether you wish to launch a web portal, email address accounts, or to share files with comrades and associates.

- File hosting: a service delivered by certain hosts, which allows you to share immense files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archives, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its single designation is to share files, since it does not support web site uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either obtain a randomly generated 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 not be able to open .html or .php website files in your web browser. Free-of-charge file storage accounts often involve ads by the download links, while a timer makes you await a certain span of time to view them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you own a paid file hosting plan, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download immediately, and also there is no restriction with regard to the download speed or the file size.

At present, with the help of the cPanel hosting distributors, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more fashionable "cloud hosting". This is a thoroughly mistaken explanation of the literal meaning of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting system would assign the load between independent sets of servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending various site hosting services (mail, disk storage, stats, DNS, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is just a sort of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; given corporations offer a hosting solution for images only. This hosting brand is appropriate if you desire to share a vast number of pics with mates or acquaintances since the service is generally free. You will receive a random link for each and every picture or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file storage solution, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the service cannot be utilized for web sites.

- Email hosting: a solution committed to handling your mail address accounts. Some providers provide web page hosting solutions for websites, but do not provide an e-mail service. If you want to possess a mail address with your domain name but do not desire to run a website, then the e-mail hosting service is what you require. You can open e-mail address accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting service 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, or you can embed the video file in your website that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of using this approach instead of uploading the video clip in a web hosting account is that the video creates a particular amount of central processing unit load, so with a few videos and a few hundred visitors, you may have a hard time with your webspace hosting resources. Embedding the video clip will enable you to possess as many video files as you desire without worrying about system resources.

- Web page hosting: this is the solution that you require if you wish to possess a site. To a certain extent, it embodies all of the abovementioned hosting sorts since, along with your websites, you can also host images and files, you can set up databases and e-mail box accounts, upload video files, and so on. At Hostrionics, for example, you can have a look at web hosting and dedicated server hosting accounts that allow you to get all of the aforesaid solutions in one place. There may be limitations depending on the type of hosting service that you've chosen - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web space hosting plan may be better or worse compared with the typical email/file/video/image hosting plans that are planned for specific web content solely.
