Classes of hosting solutions

A hosting service refers to saving and/or sharing given content on a hosting server hosted by a hosting vendor. There are different types of hosting services used for different purposes, so let's have a glance at these. In this way, you can conclude what you want, based on whether you'd like to establish a web site, mail addresses, or to share files with pals and acquaintances.

- File hosting: a service offered by given web hosts, which lets you share huge files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived files, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its sole objective is to share files, since it does not offer web site uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either receive a randomly created download link for each of them, or you will be able to survey a table of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to see .html or .php website files in your browser. Free-of-cost file storage solutions often include adverts by the download links, while a timer obliges you to await a certain interval of time to see them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you own a paid file hosting package, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download straight away, and also there is no limitation when it comes to the download speed or the file size.

Now, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting merchandisers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modish "cloud hosting". This is an entirely awry interpretation of the literal definition of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting system would assign the workload between individual hosts of hosting servers in a cluster, which are committed to attending miscellaneous web space hosting services (electronic mail, disk storage, stats, DNS, databases, webspace hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is just a sort of a disk storage hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; some corporations provide a hosting solution for images solely. This hosting brand is good if you want to share a huge amount of pics with mates or partners since the service is typically free. You will receive a random link for every pic or album and you can then share this link. As with the file storage solution, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the solution cannot be utilized for web pages.

- Email hosting: a solution committed to managing your e-mails. Some vendors provide webspace hosting solutions for sites, but do not offer an e-mail solution. If you would like to own an email address with your domain name but do not desire to possess a web site, then the e-mail hosting service is what you want. You can set up mail address accounts and manage them, but there will be no web service for the domains. The e-mail hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.

- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to some video file, or you can embed the video clip in your site that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of using this method instead of uploading the video in a web hosting account is that the video creates a certain amount of central processing unit load, so with several video clips and a few hundred website viewers, you may have trouble with your hosting reserves. Embedding the video clip will permit you to utilize as many video clips as you desire without hassling about system resources.

- Web page hosting: this is the service that you require if you wish to keep a website. To some extent, it consists of all of the aforementioned hosting varieties since, along with your web sites, you can also host pics and files, you can create databases and e-mail accounts, upload video clips, and so on. At AIDA Host, for instance, you can take a peek at web hosting and dedicated web hosting accounts that enable you to get all of the aforementioned services in one location. There may be limitations based on the sort of hosting solution that you've opted for - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your website hosting account may be better or worse compared to the ordinary e-mail/file/video/image hosting packages that are tailored for specific content exclusively.
