Categories of hosting services

A hosting service is related to stockpiling and/or sharing particular web content on a web hosting server run by a web hosting distributor. There are different varieties of hosting services used for various aims, so let's take a peek at them. In this way, you can pick what you need, based on whether you wish to set up a weblog, e-mail address accounts, or to share files with friends and partners.

- File hosting: a service distributed by various providers, which enables you to share large files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archives, etc. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only aim is to share files, since it does not support site uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either receive a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to explore a list of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to open .html or .php website files in your web browser. Free-of-cost file hosting accounts are often supported by showing advertisements by the download links, while a timer makes you wait for a particular spell of time to observe them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you purchase a paid file hosting plan, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, and also there is no limit in regard to the download speed or the file size.

At present, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting vendors, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more voguish "cloud hosting". This is an entirely false explanation of the literal definition of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting platform would divide the tasks at hand between autonomous groups of hosting servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending miscellaneous website hosting services (email, data storage, stats, DNS, databases, webspace hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is merely a variety of a data storage hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; given providers provide a hosting solution for images exclusively. This hosting variant is good if you wish to share a huge quantity of images with comrades or partners since the solution is mostly free. You will get a randomly generated link for each and every picture or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the solution cannot be used for web sites.

- E-mail hosting: a service devoted to handling your mail aliases. Some corporations offer website hosting services for websites, but do not supply an e-mail hosting service. If you want to own an e-mail address with your domain name but do not wish to own a web site, then the email hosting solution is what you require. You can create mailbox accounts and manage them, but there will be no web service for the domains. The e-mail hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to some video, or you can embed the video in your web page that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of using this method in lieu of uploading the video in a web hosting account is that the video file produces a specific amount of central processing unit load, so with a bunch of video files and a few hundred site visitors, you may have a hard time with your hosting supplies. Embedding the video clip will allow you to administer as many video clips as you desire without hassling about system quotas.

- Web hosting: this is the service that you need if you would like to keep a site. To a certain degree, it embodies all of the aforementioned hosting kinds since, along with your web pages, you can also host images and files, you can keep databases and mail addresses, upload videos, etc. At Joomla CMS Hosting, for example, you can take a peek at web hosting and dedicated web hosting plans that allow you to have all of the aforesaid services in one single place. There may be limits based on the sort of hosting solution that you've settled on - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting package, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your hosting account may be better or worse compared with the standard e-mail/file/video/image hosting packages that are planned for particular web content exclusively.
