Forms of hosting solutions

A hosting service refers to storing and/or sharing given web content on a web server run by a web hosting supplier. There are different types of hosting services utilized for various aims, so let's review these. In that way, you can decide what you need, on the basis of whether you'd like to build a weblog, mails, or to share files with buddies and acquaintances.

- File hosting: a solution provided by some web hosts, which lets you share large files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived files, etc. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only aim is to share files, since it does not offer site uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either obtain an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to see an index of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to open .html or .php web files in your web browser. Free-of-charge file storage solutions frequently include advertisements next to the download links, while a timer forces you to wait for a particular period of time to view them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you purchase a paid file storage package, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download immediately, and also there is no limit as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

At the moment, with the help of the cPanel hosting merchants, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modern "cloud hosting". This is a thoroughly incorrect explanation of the actual meaning of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting system would apportion the load between separate hosts of servers in a cluster, which are committed to attending miscellaneous webspace hosting services (electronic mail, web space, statistics, DNS, databases, web site hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is just a kind of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; certain vendors provide a hosting service for images exclusively. This hosting brand is good if you desire to share an enormous amount of pics with mates or associates since the service is usually free of charge. You will receive a random link for each and every picture or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the solution cannot be used for web pages.

- E-mail hosting: a service dedicated to taking care of your e-mailbox accounts. Some suppliers provide web space hosting services for web sites, but do not offer an e-mail hosting solution. If you would like to possess an e-mail address with your domain name but do not desire to own a website, then the e-mail hosting solution is what you need. You can open electronic mail accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domains. The e-mail hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a certain video, or you can embed the video clip in your web page that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of availing of this method instead of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video file brings about a given amount of central processing unit load, so with several video clips and a few hundred web site viewers, you may have difficulty with your webspace hosting supplies. Embedding the video will permit you to operate as many video clips as you want without bothering about system reserves.

- Web site hosting: this is the service that you need if you want to run a site. To some degree, it incorporates all of the aforesaid hosting brands since, along with your sites, you can also host pics and files, you can set up databases and mail addresses, upload video files, and so on. At In House JM, for example, you can see web hosting and dedicated web server hosting plans that enable you to have all of the abovementioned services in one single place. There may be restrictions based on the sort of hosting solution that you've opted for - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your web page hosting account may be better or worse juxtaposed to the normal e-mail/file/video/image hosting packages that are devised for particular content exclusively.
