Types of hosting solutions

A hosting service means keeping and/or sharing certain web content on a server handled by a web hosting company. There are different sorts of hosting services utilized for different goals, so let's study them. In that way, you can elect what you want, based on whether you desire to launch a site, email address accounts, or to share files with comrades and acquaintances.

- File hosting: a solution offered by certain web hosts, which enables you to share large files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived files, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its sole function is to share files, since it does not offer web page uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either get a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to survey a list 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 hosting solutions frequently include ads by the download links, while a timer compels you to await a specific interval of time to see them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you possess a paid file hosting package, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download right away, and also there is no restriction as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

Now, with the help of the cPanel hosting distributors, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more stylish "cloud hosting". This is a thoroughly twisted interpretation of the literal connotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting platform would allocate the load between individual sets of servers in a cluster, which are committed to serving miscellaneous web hosting services (electronic mail, data storage, statistics, DNS, databases, web page hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting service is just a brand of a disk storage hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; certain distributors provide a hosting solution for pictures solely. This hosting brand is good if you wish to share an enormous quantity of pics with chums or associates since the service is mostly free. You will receive a random link for each pic or album and you can then share this link. As with the file storage solution, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the service cannot be used for websites.

- Email hosting: a solution committed to managing your email address accounts. Some providers provide web page hosting solutions for websites, but do not offer an email hosting service. If you would like to own an e-mail address with your domain name but do not want to run a site, then the email hosting solution is what you require. You can open e-mail accounts and administer them, but there will be no web solution for the domains. The email hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.

- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a specific video file, or you can embed the video clip in your web page that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of using this method in lieu of uploading the video file in a hosting account is that the video file creates a particular amount of CPU load, so with a couple of video files and a few hundred web site viewers, you may have trouble with your web space hosting resources. Embedding the video clip will allow you to keep as many video clips as you want to without hassling about system quotas.

- Website hosting: this is the service that you need if you would like to have a web site. To some extent, it includes all of the abovementioned hosting kinds since, along with your web pages, you can also host pics and files, you can set up databases and email box accounts, upload video clips, and so on. At Host Blazers, for instance, you can see web hosting and dedicated server hosting solutions that allow you to get all of the aforementioned solutions in one location. There may be limits based on the kind of hosting service that you've settled on - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your web page hosting package may be better or worse in comparison with the usual email/file/video/image hosting packages that are made for specific web content solely.
