Groups of Hosting Services

A hosting service means hoarding and/or sharing specific content on a server handled by a web hosting distributor. There are different forms of hosting services used for different aims, so let's have a gaze at these. In this way, you can determine what you want, based on whether you desire to establish a website, e-mail aliases, or to share files with chums and associates.

- File hosting: a service distributed by some providers, which lets you share enormous files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived files, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole objective is to share files, since it does not offer web site uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either obtain an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to examine a roll of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to load .html or .php website files in your browser. Free-of-cost file storage packages are frequently supported by showing advertisements beside the download links, while a timer makes you wait for a particular stretch of time to perceive 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 at once, 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 web hosting corporations, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modern "cloud hosting". This is a completely erroneous interpretation of the actual connotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud hosting environment would apportion the load between different bunches of servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving different web hosting services (email, disk space, statistics, DNS, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is merely a variety of a disk storage hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; some providers provide a hosting service for images only. This hosting variant is suitable if you would like to share a vast quantity of images with pals or colleagues since the solution is usually free of charge. You will obtain a randomly generated link for each picture or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be used for web sites.

- E-mail hosting: a solution dedicated to tackling your mail accounts. Some companies provide web hosting solutions for sites, but do not provide an e-mail service. If you wish to open an e-mail address with your domain name but do not wish to keep a web site, then the email hosting solution is what you want. You can open e-mail accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domain. The email hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a certain video, or you can embed the video in your web page that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of availing of this method in lieu of uploading the video in a web hosting account is that the video file produces a certain amount of CPU load, so with a few video clips and a few hundred viewers, you may have a hard time with your web site hosting quotas. Embedding the video will enable you to have as many videos as you want without bothering about system quotas.

- Website hosting: this is the solution that you require if you wish to have a website. To a certain extent, it includes all of the aforesaid hosting brands since, along with your sites, you can also host images and files, you can run databases and email accounts, upload video clips, and so on. At 'Resellers Panel', for instance, you can take a look at shared web hosting and VPS hosting solutions that permit you to get all of the aforementioned solutions in a single location. There may be limits depending on the sort of hosting solution that you've selected - a free hosting account, a paid shared website hosting package, a Virtual Private Server or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web space hosting plan may be better or worse in comparison with the customary e-mail/file/video/image hosting accounts that are created for specific content only.
