Classes of hosting services

A hosting service refers to hoarding and/or sharing particular content on a hosting server run by a hosting vendor. There are various varieties of hosting services utilized for various purposes, so let's study them. Thus, you can conclude what you want, based on whether you desire to build a blog, email accounts, or to share files with friends and colleagues.

- File hosting: a service furnished by particular companies, which lets you share big files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived files, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its sole function is to share files, since it does not offer web site uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either obtain a randomly created download link for each of them, or you will be able to view an index of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to see .html or .php web page files in your web browser. Free file hosting accounts often include adverts next to the download links, while a timer compels you to await a particular span of time to perceive them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you run a paid file storage package, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download straight away, and also there is no limitation as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

At present, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting vendors, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more voguish "cloud hosting". This is an entirely awry explanation of the literal denotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting system would allocate the workload between autonomous stacks of web servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending various site hosting services (email, storage space, stats, DNS, databases, web site hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is only a sort of a disk storage hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; certain providers provide a hosting solution for images solely. This hosting kind is appropriate if you wish to share an enormous amount of images with comrades or colleagues since the service is mostly free of charge. You will obtain a random link for every pic or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the solution cannot be used for web sites.

- Email hosting: a solution devoted to administering your e-mail address accounts. Some companies offer website hosting services for sites, but do not offer an e-mail service. If you want to get a mail address with your domain name but do not desire to own a website, then the e-mail hosting solution is what you need. You can set up e-mail address accounts and administer them, but there will be no web solution for the domains. The email hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP servers.

- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a given video clip, or you can embed the video in your site that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of utilizing this approach instead of uploading the video in a web hosting account is that the video file brings about a given amount of central processing unit load, so with a handful of videos and several hundred viewers, you may have difficulty with your site hosting quotas. Embedding the video clip will allow you to possess as many video clips as you want without worrying about system reserves.

- Web hosting: this is the service that you require if you wish to possess a website. To some degree, it encompasses all of the aforesaid hosting variants since, along with your sites, you can also host pictures and files, you can run databases and e-mail box accounts, upload videos, and so on. At Exclusive Hosting, for example, you can have a glance at web hosting and dedicated hosting services that enable you to have all of the abovementioned solutions in a single place. There may be limits depending on the kind of hosting service that you've chosen - a free hosting plan, a paid shared hosting package, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your web site hosting package may be better or worse compared to the conventional email/file/video/image hosting plans that are designed for particular content exclusively.
