Forms of hosting services

A hosting solution suggests keeping and/or sharing specific content on a web hosting server handled by a hosting distributor. There are different forms of hosting services used for different ends, so let's take a glance at them. Doing so, you can determine what you need, based on whether you desire to run a web page, e-mail aliases, or to share files with mates and associates.

- File hosting: a solution delivered by particular providers, which enables you to share large files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived documents, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole objective is to share files, since it does not offer website uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either get an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to see a roll of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to open .html or .php web page files in your browser. Free-of-cost file hosting services are often supported by showing advertisements beside the download links, while a timer obliges you to await a particular span of time to see them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you get a paid file hosting account, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download right away, and also there is no restriction when it comes to the download speed or the file size.

Now, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting suppliers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more fashionable "cloud hosting". This is a thoroughly mistaken interpretation of the real meaning of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting platform would distribute the tasks at hand between different packs of hosting servers in a cluster, which are committed to attending different site hosting services (email, disk storage, stats, DNS, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is only a brand of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; certain distributors offer a hosting solution for images exclusively. This hosting type is suitable if you desire to share an enormous amount of pictures with buddies or associates since the service is commonly free of charge. You will obtain a randomly generated link for every picture or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the solution cannot be used for web sites.

- Email hosting: a service devoted to tackling your email aliases. Some providers provide site hosting solutions for web pages, but do not offer an e-mail hosting solution. If you desire to own an email address with your domain name but do not desire to run a website, then the email hosting solution is what you require. You can open mailbox accounts and administer them, but there will be no web solution for the domains. The e-mail hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service allows you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a particular video, or you can embed the video in your website that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of utilizing this method in lieu of uploading the video file in a hosting account is that the video file brings about a certain amount of CPU load, so with a handful of video clips and several hundred site visitors, you may have a problem with your hosting quotas. Embedding the video will enable you to run as many video clips as you want to without hassling about system resources.

- Web page hosting: this is the service that you require if you would like to keep a web site. To some extent, it involves all of the aforementioned hosting brands since, along with your websites, you can also host pics and files, you can have databases and mailbox accounts, upload videos, and so on. At EnCenterWEB, for instance, you can observe web hosting and dedicated web server hosting services that enable you to have all of the aforementioned services in one single place. There may be limits depending on the form of hosting solution that you've chosen - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web space hosting package may be better or worse compared with the normal email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are purposed for particular web content exclusively.
