Groups of hosting services

A hosting solution is connected with keeping and/or sharing particular web content on a hosting server run by a web hosting provider. There are different sorts of hosting services utilized for various goals, so let's have a gaze at them. Doing so, you can conclude what you need, based on whether you wish to launch a website, mails, or to share files with friends and partners.

- File hosting: a solution furnished by certain companies, which allows you to share enormous files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived documents, etc. This service 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 receive an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to explore a list of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to view .html or .php web files in your web browser. Free file storage services frequently include advertisements beside the download links, while a timer compels you to await a certain spell of time to see them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you have a paid file storage account, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download at once, and also there is no limit in regard to the download speed or the file size.

At the moment, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting suppliers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more stylish "cloud hosting". This is a totally incorrect interpretation of the real connotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting system would assign the load between autonomous sets of web servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving miscellaneous web space hosting services (electronic mail, web space, stats, DNS, databases, website hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is simply 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 suppliers provide a hosting solution for images solely. This hosting brand is good if you wish to share a big quantity of pics with chums or partners since the solution is commonly free. You will get a randomly generated link for every picture or album and you can then share this link. As with the file storage service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the solution cannot be utilized for web pages.

- E-mail hosting: a solution dedicated to handling your mail address accounts. Some companies provide site hosting services for websites, but do not offer an email solution. If you would like to create an e-mail address with your domain name but do not wish to have a web site, then the e-mail hosting service is what you want. You can open mail accounts and administer them, but there will be no web solution for the domains. The email hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.

- Video hosting: this service allows you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a certain video file, or you can embed the video in your website that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of utilizing this approach in lieu of uploading the video file in a hosting account is that the video produces a specific amount of CPU load, so with a couple of video clips and a few hundred web page viewers, you may have a hard time with your hosting supplies. Embedding the video clip will allow you to keep as many video clips as you want to without bothering about system supplies.

- Web hosting: this is the solution that you need if you want to possess a site. To a certain extent, it comprises all of the aforementioned hosting groups since, along with your sites, you can also host pictures and files, you can create databases and mailbox accounts, upload videos, etc. At CONFIAweb, for example, you can have a look at web hosting and dedicated server hosting services that permit you to get all of the aforementioned solutions in a single place. There may be restrictions based on the type of hosting service that you've picked - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting plan, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your hosting package may be better or worse in comparison with the routine e-mail/file/video/image hosting packages that are designed for particular web content solely.
