Forms of hosting services

A hosting solution refers to stockpiling and/or sharing specific content on a server run by a website hosting company. There are different varieties of hosting services utilized for various purposes, so let's take a glance at them. Doing so, you can decide what you need, based on whether you'd like to set up a blog, e-mail addresses, or to share files with friends and colleagues.

- File hosting: a service made available by particular web hosts, which permits you to share large files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archives, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its single purpose is to share files, since it does not offer web page uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either get an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to survey a register of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to view .html or .php web files in your web browser. Free file storage plans are frequently supported by displaying advertisements next to the download links, while a timer obliges you to await a certain period of time to observe them. A given file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you run a paid file hosting account, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, and also there is no limit as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

At present, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting corporations, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modish "cloud hosting". This is an entirely improper interpretation of the literal connotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting environment would allot the tasks at hand between individual groups of web servers in a cluster, which are committed to serving different web page hosting services (mail, data storage, statistics, DNS, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is only a variety of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: close to file hosting; certain distributors provide a hosting solution for pictures only. This hosting kind is suitable if you would like to share an enormous number of pictures with comrades or partners since the solution is usually free of charge. You will receive a randomly generated link for each and every image or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the solution cannot be used for web sites.

- E-mail hosting: a solution dedicated to administering your email box accounts. Some companies provide web hosting solutions for sites, but do not supply an email hosting service. If you want to possess an e-mail address with your domain name but do not wish to possess a site, then the e-mail hosting solution is what you require. You can open e-mailbox accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domains. The email hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.

- Video hosting: this service allows you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a particular video clip, or you can embed the video clip in your site that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of utilizing this approach instead of uploading the video clip in a hosting account is that the video creates a specific amount of CPU load, so with a few video clips and a few hundred site viewers, you may have a problem with your web hosting supplies. Embedding the video will permit you to utilize as many videos as you want to without hassling about system resources.

- Web hosting: this is the service that you need if you want to have a website. To some extent, it incorporates all of the aforementioned hosting categories since, along with your sites, you can also host images and files, you can have databases and email mailbox accounts, upload videos, and so on. At Denker Hosting, for example, you can have a look at web hosting and dedicated web server hosting accounts that enable you to have all of the abovementioned services in a single location. There may be limitations based on the form of hosting solution that you've selected - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting plan, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web hosting package may be better or worse in comparison with the standard e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are created for particular web content solely.
