Classes of hosting solutions

A hosting service applies to depositing and/or sharing certain content on a server handled by a website hosting supplier. There are different varieties of hosting services utilized for different aims, so let's have a gaze at them. Thus, you can conclude what you need, based on whether you'd like to set up a weblog, emails, or to share files with pals and acquaintances.

- File hosting: a service provided by particular providers, which allows you to share immense files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archives, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its only objective is to share files, since it does not support web page uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either obtain an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to explore a register of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to open .html or .php web site files in your browser. Free-of-charge file storage plans are often supported by showing advertisements by the download links, while a timer compels you to await a particular interval of time to observe them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you run a paid file hosting package, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download straight away, and also there is no limitation in regard to the download speed or the file size.

At present, with the help of the cPanel hosting wholesalers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more stylish "cloud hosting". This is an entirely incorrect explanation of the literal meaning of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting platform would share the workload between individual hosts of web servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving miscellaneous website hosting services (electronic mail, web space, stats, DNS, databases, site hosting CP, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is merely a brand of a disk space hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; given firms provide a hosting solution for images exclusively. This hosting variant is good if you would like to share an immense quantity of pics with mates or acquaintances since the service is generally free of cost. You will receive a random link for every image 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 utilized for web sites.

- E-mail hosting: a service devoted to managing your mails. Some firms offer web hosting solutions for websites, but do not supply an email solution. If you would like to own an e-mail address with your domain name but do not want to keep a web site, then the e-mail hosting service is what you want. You can set up mailbox accounts and administer them, but there will be no web service for the domains. The email hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP servers.

- Video hosting: this service allows you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a given video file, or you can embed the video in your web page that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of utilizing this method instead of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video clip produces a particular amount of central processing unit load, so with several videos and a few hundred web page visitors, you may have a problem with your web hosting supplies. Embedding the video clip will enable you to have as many video clips as you want to without worrying about system resources.

- Web site hosting: this is the service that you require if you wish to run a website. To a certain extent, it includes all of the aforementioned hosting categories since, along with your web pages, you can also host images and files, you can keep databases and mails, upload video files, and so on. At Techpulse Ltd, for instance, you can take a glimpse at web hosting and dedicated hosting services that permit you to get all of the aforesaid solutions in one single place. There may be limitations based on the type of hosting solution that you've selected - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web hosting plan may be better or worse compared to the conventional email/file/video/image hosting plans that are devised for particular content exclusively.
