Classes of hosting services

A hosting solution is connected with stashing and/or sharing certain web content on a web server administered by a hosting supplier. There are different varieties of hosting services used for different purposes, so let's take a glance at these. In this way, you can conclude what you want, depending on whether you wish to build a web site, email box accounts, or to share files with chums and partners.

- File hosting: a service provided by various hosts, which lets you share large files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archives, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its single objective is to share files, since it does not support web site uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either receive an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to survey an inventory of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to view .html or .php web site files in your browser. Free file hosting services are frequently supported by displaying adverts next to the download links, while a timer makes you await a certain interval of time to view them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you own a paid file hosting account, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, and also there is no limit with regard to the download speed or the file size.

At the moment, with the help of the cPanel hosting wholesalers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more faddish "cloud hosting". This is an entirely incorrect interpretation of the real definition of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting platform would distribute the load between separate groups of servers in a cluster, which are devoted to serving miscellaneous webspace hosting services (mail, data storage, stats, DNS, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is only a type of a storage space hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; some firms provide a hosting service for pictures only. This hosting brand is good if you want to share an immense quantity of pictures with chums or associates since the solution is commonly free of cost. You will obtain a random link for each pic or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be utilized for sites.

- Email hosting: a solution devoted to handling your email address accounts. Some corporations offer website hosting services for web pages, but do not provide an email solution. If you would like to create an e-mail address with your domain name but do not want to run a website, then the email hosting solution is what you need. You can create e-mail accounts and manage them, but there will be no web solution for the domains. The e-mail hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service allows you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to some video clip, or you can embed the video file in your site that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of using this method in lieu of uploading the video file in a hosting account is that the video generates a certain amount of CPU load, so with a bunch of video files and several hundred web site viewers, you may have a problem with your site hosting quotas. Embedding the video will permit you to utilize as many video files as you would like without hassling about system reserves.

- Website hosting: this is the service that you need if you wish to keep a site. To a certain degree, it involves all of the aforementioned hosting varieties since, along with your websites, you can also host pics and files, you can set up databases and email box accounts, upload video clips, etc. At Lonex, for example, you can explore web hosting and dedicated web hosting plans that enable you to have all of the abovementioned services in one single place. There may be limits based on the kind of hosting solution that you've opted for - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your website hosting plan may be better or worse in comparison with the usual e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are devised for particular content only.
