Classes of hosting solutions

A hosting service involves keeping and/or sharing specific web content on a web server run by a website hosting provider. There are different varieties of hosting services used for various goals, so let's survey these. In that way, you can conclude what you need, on the basis of whether you desire to build a weblog, email accounts, or to share files with friends and associates.

- File hosting: a solution offered by particular web hosts, which enables you to share big files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived files, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its only designation is to share files, since it does not offer site uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either receive a randomly created download link for each of them, or you will be able to examine a record of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to open .html or .php web files in your browser. Free-of-cost file storage solutions often involve advertisements by the download links, while a timer makes you await a particular interval of time to perceive them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you have a paid file storage account, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download immediately, and also there is no limit in regard to the download speed or the file size.

At present, with the help of the cPanel hosting companies, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more voguish "cloud hosting". This is an entirely mistaken explanation of the literal denotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting system would apportion the workload between separate groups of web servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving miscellaneous site hosting services (electronic mail, data storage, stats, DNS, databases, Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is merely a sort of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; specific firms provide a hosting solution for images only. This hosting kind is appropriate if you would like to share an immense amount of pics with chums or associates since the solution is generally free of cost. You will obtain a random link for each and every pic or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the solution cannot be used for web sites.

- Email hosting: a service committed to taking care of your email addresses. Some providers offer web site hosting solutions for sites, but do not supply an e-mail hosting service. If you would like to set up an e-mail address with your domain name but do not desire to own a website, then the e-mail hosting service is what you require. You can set up email accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domains. The email hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service allows you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to some video, or you can embed the video clip in your site that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of using this method instead of uploading the video clip in a hosting account is that the video generates a particular amount of central processing unit load, so with several video files and several hundred site visitors, you may have difficulty with your web page hosting supplies. Embedding the video will permit you to utilize as many video files as you wish without bothering about system quotas.

- Website hosting: this is the solution that you require if you would like to keep a site. To some degree, it includes all of the aforementioned hosting sorts since, along with your websites, you can also host pics and files, you can set up databases and mail accounts, upload videos, and so on. At Exclusive Hosting, for instance, you can take a gaze at web hosting and dedicated web server hosting accounts that allow you to have all of the abovementioned services in one place. There may be limitations depending on the sort of hosting service that you've selected - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your webspace hosting account may be better or worse compared to the normal email/file/video/image hosting plans that are designed for particular content exclusively.
