Forms of hosting solutions

A hosting solution includes depositing and/or sharing particular web content on a web hosting server handled by a website hosting distributor. There are various types of hosting services used for various ends, so let's have a gaze at them. In that way, you can pick what you want, based on whether you wish to establish a web site, e-mail aliases, or to share files with mates and colleagues.

- File hosting: a service supplied by some vendors, which allows you to share enormous files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archives, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole aim is to share files, since it does not support site uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either get a randomly created download link for each of them, or you will be able to examine a register of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to open .html or .php web site files in your browser. Free-of-cost file storage accounts often involve adverts next to the download links, while a timer forces you to wait for a given interval of time to observe them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you buy a paid file storage plan, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, 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 hosting traders, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modish "cloud hosting". This is an entirely twisted explanation of the actual meaning of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting system would allot the workload between autonomous bunches of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending different hosting services (electronic mail, storage space, statistics, DNS, databases, Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is just a type of a data storage hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: close to file hosting; given firms provide a hosting solution for pictures solely. This hosting brand is appropriate if you desire to share a large number of pics with buddies or partners since the service is generally free. You will receive a random link for every 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 solution cannot be used for websites.

- Email hosting: a service devoted to managing your e-mails. Some corporations provide web space hosting services for sites, but do not supply an email solution. If you wish to get a mail address with your domain name but do not desire to own a site, then the email hosting solution is what you want. You can open mail accounts and manage them, but there will be no web solution for the domains. The e-mail hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a certain video clip, or you can embed the video clip in your web page that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of using this approach instead of uploading the video clip in a hosting account is that the video clip creates a specific amount of central processing unit load, so with a few video clips and several hundred website viewers, you may have difficulty with your web site hosting supplies. Embedding the video file will enable you to use as many video clips as you want to without hassling about system supplies.

- Web site hosting: this is the service that you require if you want to have a web site. To some extent, it includes all of the aforesaid hosting variants since, along with your websites, you can also host images and files, you can create databases and email aliases, upload video clips, and so on. At 100WebSpace, for example, you can take a look at web hosting and dedicated hosting solutions that permit you to get all of the aforesaid services in a single location. There may be limitations based on the sort of hosting solution that you've settled on - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your website hosting account may be better or worse compared with the normal e-mail/file/video/image hosting accounts that are meant for specific web content only.
