Types of hosting solutions

A hosting solution refers to stockpiling and/or sharing certain content on a hosting server run by a web hosting supplier. There are various categories of hosting services utilized for different goals, so let's review them. Thus, you can determine what you want, depending on whether you desire to own a weblog, email addresses, or to share files with friends and colleagues.

- File hosting: a solution provided by various file storage providers, which enables you to share bulky files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived documents, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its only function is to share files, since it does not support site uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either receive a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to explore a roster of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to see .html or .php website files in your web browser. Free file storage solutions often include ads beside the download links, while a timer obliges you to wait for a certain amount of time to observe them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you have a paid file hosting package, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download immediately, and also there is no restriction when it comes to the download speed or the file size.

These days, with the help of the cPanel hosting firms, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more voguish "cloud hosting". This is a thoroughly improper explanation of the actual denotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting environment would allot the load between independent groups of web servers in a cluster, which are committed to attending various webspace hosting services (electronic mail, disk storage, statistics, DNS, databases, website hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is just a brand of a disk storage hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; given providers offer a hosting solution for images exclusively. This hosting kind is good if you wish to share a vast quantity of pics with friends or associates since the service is generally free of cost. You will get a random link for each and 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 service cannot be utilized for sites.

- E-mail hosting: a solution committed to administering your e-mail address accounts. Some vendors offer hosting solutions for web pages, but do not offer an e-mail hosting service. If you would like to set up an e-mail address with your domain name but do not desire to keep a website, then the e-mail hosting service is what you need. You can set up mail accounts and administer them, but there will be no web service for the domains. The e-mail hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to some video clip, or you can embed the video clip in your site that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of using this method in lieu of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video file generates a given amount of central processing unit load, so with a couple of videos and a few hundred web page viewers, you may have a hard time with your web site hosting quotas. Embedding the video will enable you to manage as many video files as you would like without worrying about system resources.

- Web hosting: this is the service that you require if you wish to possess a site. To some degree, it incorporates all of the aforesaid hosting groups since, along with your sites, you can also host images and files, you can have databases and e-mailbox accounts, upload video files, and so on. At DevOne Hosting, for example, you can have a glance at web hosting and dedicated server hosting plans that allow you to get all of the aforesaid services in one place. There may be limitations depending on the sort of hosting solution that you've settled on - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting plan, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your website hosting plan may be better or worse compared with the routine email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are devised for particular content exclusively.
