Classes of Hosting Services

A hosting solution means keeping and/or sharing particular web content on a web server administered by a web hosting company. There are different varieties of hosting services used for various aims, so let's explore them. Thus, you can decide what you need, on the basis of whether you wish to establish a website, e-mail accounts, or to share files with pals and acquaintances.

- File hosting: a solution offered by some hosts, which enables you to share enormous files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived documents, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its only goal is to share files, since it does not support website uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either receive an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to examine a record of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to open .html or .php web page files in your browser. Free file hosting packages are frequently supported by exhibiting adverts beside the download links, while a timer forces you to wait for a certain stretch of time to perceive them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you possess a paid file hosting account, there are no restrictions 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 help of the cPanel web hosting firms, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modern "cloud hosting". This is a totally incongruous explanation of the literal definition of "cloud hosting". A real cloud web hosting system would share the load between different stacks of hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending various hosting services (email, disk storage, statistics, DNS, databases, Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is merely a sort of a data storage hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; given corporations provide a hosting solution for pictures only. This hosting type is appropriate if you would like to share an immense number of pics with friends or acquaintances since the solution is mostly free of charge. You will receive a randomly generated link for each and every image or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file storage solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be used for websites.

- E-mail hosting: a service devoted to managing your email accounts. Some vendors offer hosting services for sites, but do not supply an e-mail solution. If you desire to manage a mail address with your domain name but do not wish to keep a web site, then the e-mail hosting solution is what you require. You can open mail accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domain name. The email hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.

- Video hosting: this service enables 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 somewhere else. The benefit of availing of this approach instead of uploading the video clip in a hosting account is that the video file creates a given amount of central processing unit load, so with a handful of video files and a few hundred web page visitors, you may have trouble with your webspace hosting supplies. Embedding the video file will allow you to own as many video files as you wish without bothering about system resources.

- Web page hosting: this is the service that you need if you desire to keep a site. To a certain extent, it embodies all of the aforementioned hosting forms since, along with your sites, you can also host images and files, you can keep databases and e-mail address accounts, upload video clips, etc. At 'NTCHosting', for example, you can have a glimpse at shared and dedicated hosting services that enable you to get all of the abovementioned solutions in one location. There may be limitations based on the form of web hosting service that you've settled on - a free web hosting account, a paid cheap web hosting account, a VPS hosting server or a dedicated server. Based on that, your site hosting account may be better or worse in comparison with the usual email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are devised for particular content exclusively.
