Classes of hosting solutions

A hosting service suggests hoarding and/or sharing given web content on a server handled by a website hosting provider. There are different forms of hosting services used for various ends, so let's explore them. Thus, you can pick what you need, on the basis of whether you'd like to create a site, email addresses, or to share files with chums and partners.

- File hosting: a service provided by certain web hosts, which permits you to share huge files. These could be disk images, films, 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 website uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either get a randomly created download link for each of them, or you will be able to see a record of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to load .html or .php web site files in your browser. Free-of-charge file hosting accounts are often supported by exhibiting adverts by the download links, while a timer forces you to wait for a certain period of time to see them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you get a paid file storage plan, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download right away, and also there is no limit in regard to the download speed or the file size.

Nowadays, with the help of the cPanel hosting merchandisers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modish "cloud hosting". This is a totally inapt interpretation of the actual denotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting platform would assign the load between separate hosts of web servers in a cluster, which are devoted to serving different web page hosting services (mail, disk storage, stats, DNS, databases, web hosting CP, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is merely a kind of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; some distributors provide a hosting solution for pictures exclusively. This hosting brand is good if you wish to share an immense number of pics with pals or partners since the service is usually free of cost. You will get a random link for every pic or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the service cannot be utilized for websites.

- Email hosting: a service dedicated to tackling your e-mail accounts. Some corporations provide web space hosting services for web pages, but do not offer an e-mail hosting service. If you want to create an email address with your domain name but do not want to keep a web site, then the email hosting service is what you require. You can create email box accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting service for the domains. The email hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this solution enables you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a certain video clip, or you can embed the video file in your site that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of availing of this method in lieu of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video file generates a specific amount of central processing unit load, so with a handful of video files and several hundred web page viewers, you may have a hard time with your web hosting reserves. Embedding the video clip will permit you to run as many video clips as you desire without hassling about system supplies.

- Web hosting: this is the solution that you need if you wish to run a web site. To a certain extent, it includes all of the abovementioned hosting brands since, along with your websites, you can also host pics and files, you can keep databases and email box accounts, upload video clips, and so on. At Lonex, for example, you can take a glance at web hosting and dedicated web hosting services that enable you to have all of the abovementioned services in a single place. There may be limits depending on the form of hosting solution that you've picked - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting package, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your site hosting package may be better or worse compared to the standard email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are designed for specific web content only.
