Kinds of hosting solutions

A hosting service means stashing and/or sharing particular web content on a web server hosted by a web hosting vendor. There are various groups of hosting services utilized for various goals, so let's examine them. In that way, you can conclude what you need, based on whether you wish to launch a website, email aliases, or to share files with friends and associates.

- File hosting: a solution offered by various web hosts, which enables you to share immense files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archives, etc. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only purpose is to share files, since it does not offer web page uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either get an accidentally 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 not be able to load .html or .php web files in your web browser. Free-of-cost file storage plans are frequently supported by showing ads beside the download links, while a timer forces you to wait for a specific span of time to view them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you buy a paid file storage plan, there are no limitations 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 assistance of the cPanel hosting merchants, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more stylish "cloud hosting". This is a thoroughly incongruous explanation of the real meaning of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting platform would assign the workload between different sets of web servers in a cluster, which are devoted to serving various web site hosting services (mail, web space, statistics, DNS, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is merely a variety of a disk storage hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; given corporations offer a hosting service for pictures only. This hosting kind is good if you wish to share a great amount of pictures with chums or associates since the solution is mostly free of cost. You will obtain a random 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 solution cannot be used for websites.

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

- Video hosting: this solution permits you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a specific video clip, or you can embed the video file in your website that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of using this method in lieu of uploading the video file in a hosting account is that the video clip brings about a certain amount of CPU load, so with a few video files and several hundred web page visitors, you may have difficulty with your web site hosting reserves. Embedding the video clip will permit you to administer as many video files as you want to without hassling about system resources.

- Web hosting: this is the service that you require if you desire to keep a site. 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 create databases and email aliases, upload videos, etc. At C J INVESTIMENTS PTY LTD, for example, you can have a glimpse at web hosting and dedicated web hosting plans that enable you to have all of the aforesaid solutions in a single place. There may be restrictions depending on the sort of hosting service that you've settled on - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web site hosting package may be better or worse compared with the regular email/file/video/image hosting packages that are intended for specific web content only.
