Categories of hosting solutions

A hosting service concerns depositing and/or sharing certain web content on a hosting server hosted by a hosting vendor. There are various types of hosting services used for different aims, so let's take a look at these. In that way, you can elect what you want, on the basis of whether you'd like to establish a weblog, e-mail address accounts, or to share files with pals and partners.

- File hosting: a solution provided by some hosts, which lets you share bulky files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived documents, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only designation is to share files, since it does not offer web site uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either get an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to read a record 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 file hosting accounts are frequently supported by showing adverts by the download links, while a timer compels you to wait for a given span of time to perceive them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you purchase a paid file hosting plan, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download right away, and also there is no limitation as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

Now, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting providers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modern "cloud hosting". This is an entirely improper explanation of the literal meaning of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting environment would distribute the workload between independent bunches of hosting servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending miscellaneous web hosting services (mail, storage space, statistics, DNS, databases, Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is simply a brand of a storage space hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; specific firms offer a hosting solution for pictures solely. This hosting kind is suitable if you desire to share a large quantity of pics with friends or colleagues since the solution is usually free. You will obtain a random link for every picture or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file storage service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be utilized for web pages.

- Email hosting: a service dedicated to administering your mail accounts. Some firms provide web space hosting services for sites, but do not supply an email hosting service. If you would like to possess an e-mail address with your domain name but do not desire to keep a web site, then the email hosting solution is what you need. You can open mail accounts and administer them, but there will be no web solution for the domains. The email hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP servers.

- Video hosting: this service enables you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a specific video, or you can embed the video file in your web page that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of utilizing this approach in lieu of uploading the video file in a hosting account is that the video clip brings about a specific amount of CPU load, so with a few video files and a few hundred visitors, you may have a hard time with your webspace hosting resources. Embedding the video will allow you to administer as many video files as you desire without bothering about system supplies.

- Web site hosting: this is the service that you require if you would like to own a web site. To a certain extent, it encompasses all of the abovementioned hosting brands since, along with your web sites, you can also host pics and files, you can run databases and e-mail accounts, upload videos, and so on. At Technofree Hosting, for instance, you can observe web hosting and dedicated web hosting plans that enable you to get all of the aforementioned services in one single place. There may be limitations depending on the kind of hosting service that you've settled on - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web page hosting package may be better or worse juxtaposed to the standard email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are purposed for particular content exclusively.
