Varieties of hosting solutions

A hosting solution includes stashing and/or sharing given web content on a server administered by a web hosting supplier. There are various groups of hosting services used for various aims, so let's have a glimpse at them. Doing so, you can pick what you need, on the basis of whether you'd like to create a web site, e-mail addresses, or to share files with pals and partners.

- File hosting: a solution offered by some vendors, which enables you to share bulky files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archives, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its only aim is to share files, since it does not support web site uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either obtain an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to examine a roster of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to see .html or .php website files in your browser. Free-of-charge file storage accounts often involve advertisements beside the download links, while a timer forces you to wait for a particular amount of time to perceive them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you purchase a paid file hosting plan, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download immediately, and also there is no limitation as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

Now, with the help of the cPanel hosting merchandisers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more fashionable "cloud hosting". This is a thoroughly inaccurate explanation of the literal meaning of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting environment would divide the load between independent groups of servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending various website hosting services (electronic mail, data storage, statistics, DNS, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is merely a brand of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; given suppliers provide a hosting solution for pictures exclusively. This hosting kind is appropriate if you want to share an enormous quantity of pics with friends or acquaintances since the solution is typically free. You will obtain a randomly generated link for each image or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file storage solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be used for sites.

- Email hosting: a service committed to handling your email addresses. Some distributors offer web site hosting services for web pages, but do not offer an e-mail hosting solution. If you would like to set up an e-mail address with your domain name but do not desire to run a web site, then the e-mail hosting service is what you need. You can set up e-mail accounts and manage them, but there will be no web service for the domains. The e-mail hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP servers.

- Video hosting: this solution permits you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a certain video file, or you can embed the video in your website that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of availing of this approach in lieu of uploading the video clip in a hosting account is that the video creates a specific amount of central processing unit load, so with a few video clips and a few hundred web page visitors, you may have a hard time with your webspace hosting resources. Embedding the video file will allow you to keep as many videos as you would like without worrying about system resources.

- Web site hosting: this is the service that you need if you desire to run a website. To some degree, it includes all of the aforesaid hosting variants since, along with your web sites, you can also host pictures and files, you can have databases and email aliases, upload video clips, etc. At Heavenly Daze Hosting, for example, you can observe web hosting and dedicated server hosting solutions that enable you to have all of the abovementioned solutions in a single location. There may be limitations depending on the type of hosting service that you've chosen - a free hosting plan, 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 common e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are planned for particular web content exclusively.
