Kinds of hosting services

A hosting solution entails keeping and/or sharing given content on a web hosting server handled by a web hosting distributor. There are various kinds of hosting services utilized for different aims, so let's take a gaze at these. Thus, you can elect what you need, based on whether you wish to run a site, mailbox accounts, or to share files with mates and associates.

- File hosting: a service offered by particular hosts, which lets you share large files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archives, etc. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only goal is to share files, since it does not offer web site uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either obtain a randomly created download link for each of them, or you will be able to explore a table of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to load .html or .php web site files in your browser. Free-of-charge file storage packages frequently include adverts by the download links, while a timer forces you to wait for a particular interval of time to view them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you get a paid file hosting account, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download at once, and also there is no limit with regard to the download speed or the file size.

At present, with the help of the cPanel hosting corporations, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more stylish "cloud hosting". This is a totally inapt explanation of the actual meaning of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting platform would allot the load between different hosts of web servers in a cluster, which are committed to serving various web site hosting services (electronic mail, storage space, stats, DNS, databases, web hosting CP, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is only a sort of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: close to file hosting; given providers provide a hosting service for pictures exclusively. This hosting variant is appropriate if you would like to share an immense number of pictures with friends or acquaintances since the service is typically free of cost. You will get a random link for each and every image or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the service cannot be used for web sites.

- E-mail hosting: a solution dedicated to handling your e-mail address accounts. Some distributors offer site hosting solutions for web pages, but do not supply an e-mail hosting solution. If you desire to open an email address with your domain name but do not desire to keep a web site, then the email hosting solution is what you want. You can set up e-mailbox accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting service for the domains. The email hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to some video clip, or you can embed the video in your website that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of utilizing this method instead of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video generates a specific amount of central processing unit load, so with a couple of video clips and a few hundred site viewers, you may have trouble with your web hosting reserves. Embedding the video file will enable you to administer as many videos as you would like without hassling about system quotas.

- Website hosting: this is the service that you require if you wish to have a site. To some extent, it contains all of the aforementioned hosting variants since, along with your sites, you can also host images and files, you can run databases and mail addresses, upload video files, etc. At NTC Hosting, for example, you can take a look at web hosting and dedicated server hosting accounts that allow you to get all of the aforementioned services in one location. There may be limits depending on the sort of hosting service that you've chosen - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting package, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your web hosting package may be better or worse in comparison with the ordinary email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are meant for particular content only.
