Kinds of hosting services

A hosting solution involves stashing and/or sharing given content on a web hosting server handled by a hosting supplier. There are various categories of hosting services used for various goals, so let's examine them. Doing so, you can choose what you need, depending on whether you'd like to set up a web page, email mailbox accounts, or to share files with chums and acquaintances.

- File hosting: a solution distributed by some providers, which allows you to share immense files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived documents, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its single aim is to share files, since it does not support website uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either receive a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to read a table 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-cost file storage solutions are frequently supported by showing adverts by the download links, while a timer makes you await a given span of time to see them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you possess a paid file hosting package, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download at once, and also there is no limitation as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

Nowadays, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting suppliers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more trendy "cloud hosting". This is a completely fallacious interpretation of the actual connotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting environment would split the load between separate bunches of hosting servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending different website hosting services (email, data storage, statistics, DNS, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is merely a brand of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; some distributors provide a hosting service for images solely. This hosting variant is good if you desire to share a big number of pictures with pals or acquaintances since the solution is mostly free of cost. You will get a randomly generated link for each picture or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file storage solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the solution cannot be utilized for web sites.

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

- Video hosting: this service enables you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a specific video, or you can embed the video in your website that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of utilizing this approach instead of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video clip brings about a given amount of central processing unit load, so with a handful of video clips and a few hundred web page visitors, you may have difficulty with your site hosting reserves. Embedding the video file will permit you to operate as many video files as you want without bothering about system supplies.

- Web hosting: this is the service that you need if you desire to keep a web site. To some degree, it embodies all of the aforesaid hosting sorts since, along with your websites, you can also host pics and files, you can create databases and mail address accounts, upload video clips, etc. At BlueHeavens, for instance, you can take a glimpse at web hosting and dedicated web hosting accounts that permit you to get all of the aforementioned services in one single location. There may be limits based on the kind of hosting solution that you've settled on - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting plan, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your hosting plan may be better or worse juxtaposed to the common email/file/video/image hosting packages that are devised for particular content exclusively.
