Kinds of hosting services

A hosting service refers to stashing and/or sharing specific web content on a web hosting server handled by a web hosting provider. There are different types of hosting services used for different purposes, so let's have a gaze at these. Thus, you can determine what you need, on the basis of whether you wish to launch a site, emails, or to share files with pals and colleagues.

- File hosting: a service distributed by particular web hosts, which permits you to share immense files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived documents, etc. This solution is also known as file storage, and its sole aim is to share files, since it does not support site uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either get a randomly created download link for each of them, or you will be able to read a table 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 file hosting accounts often include adverts beside the download links, while a timer makes you await a specific span of time to perceive them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you purchase a paid file hosting plan, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, and also there is no limitation as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

Nowadays, with the help of the cPanel hosting companies, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modish "cloud hosting". This is a completely twisted explanation of the literal definition of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting system would apportion the workload between separate sets of web servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving various website hosting services (email, web space, stats, DNS, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is merely a kind of a disk storage hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; specific companies provide a hosting service for pictures solely. This hosting kind is suitable if you desire to share a huge number of pictures with buddies or colleagues since the solution is typically free of cost. You will get a random link for each and every picture or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be used for web sites.

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

- Video hosting: this solution permits you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a certain video file, or you can embed the video file in your web page that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of utilizing this method in lieu of uploading the video clip in a web hosting account is that the video file generates a given amount of central processing unit load, so with a few video clips and several hundred website viewers, you may have trouble with your web site hosting reserves. Embedding the video will enable you to possess as many videos as you want without bothering about system supplies.

- Web page hosting: this is the solution that you need if you want to own a site. To a certain extent, it embodies all of the aforementioned hosting forms since, along with your websites, you can also host pictures and files, you can create databases and e-mailbox accounts, upload videos, and so on. At Boyadzhan Hosting, for example, you can have a peek at web hosting and dedicated server hosting services that allow you to get all of the aforementioned solutions in one place. There may be limits depending on the type of hosting solution that you've opted for - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your webspace hosting account may be better or worse in comparison with the customary e-mail/file/video/image hosting packages that are made for particular web content only.
