Forms of hosting solutions

A hosting service is connected with keeping and/or sharing particular web content on a server handled by a web hosting vendor. There are various varieties of hosting services utilized for different ends, so let's have a glimpse at these. In that way, you can pick what you want, based on whether you wish to create a web page, mail addresses, or to share files with comrades and colleagues.

- File hosting: a solution provided by certain vendors, which allows you to share enormous files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived files, etc. This solution is also known as file storage, and its single purpose is to share files, since it does not support web site uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either obtain an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to survey an index of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to open .html or .php web page files in your web browser. Free file storage services are often supported by showing ads next to the download links, while a timer makes you await a particular span of time to observe them. A given 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 at once, and also there is no restriction as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

These days, with the help of the cPanel hosting retailers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more voguish "cloud hosting". This is a completely amiss explanation of the actual meaning of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting platform would allocate the workload between independent hosts of web servers in a cluster, which are committed to serving various web page hosting services (electronic mail, web space, statistics, DNS, databases, website hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting service is merely a brand of a storage space hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; specific companies offer a hosting solution for pictures solely. This hosting brand is suitable if you desire to share an immense quantity of images with buddies or acquaintances since the solution is usually free. You will obtain a random link for each and every pic or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be utilized for sites.

- E-mail hosting: a solution committed to managing your e-mail addresses. Some vendors offer webspace hosting solutions for websites, but do not supply an email hosting solution. If you wish to possess an e-mail address with your domain name but do not want to keep a website, then the e-mail hosting service is what you need. You can open email mailbox accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting service for the domains. The email hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP servers.

- Video hosting: this solution permits you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a particular video file, or you can embed the video in your website that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of utilizing this method instead of uploading the video file in a hosting account is that the video file produces a particular amount of central processing unit load, so with a couple of video files and several hundred viewers, you may have a problem with your hosting quotas. Embedding the video file will allow you to utilize as many videos as you would like without bothering about system supplies.

- Website hosting: this is the solution that you need if you wish to run a site. To some degree, it contains all of the aforementioned hosting kinds since, along with your sites, you can also host pictures and files, you can have databases and e-mail accounts, upload video files, and so on. At Joomla CMS Hosting, for instance, you can observe web hosting and dedicated server hosting plans that permit you to have all of the abovementioned solutions in one single place. There may be limitations depending on the form of hosting solution that you've opted for - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web hosting package may be better or worse juxtaposed to the normal e-mail/file/video/image hosting accounts that are created for particular content only.
