Groups of hosting solutions

A hosting service includes saving and/or sharing given web content on a hosting server handled by a hosting supplier. There are different groups of hosting services used for various goals, so let's take a glimpse at these. In that way, you can elect what you need, based on whether you'd like to build a web page, email addresses, or to share files with pals and partners.

- File hosting: a solution supplied by certain web hosts, which permits you to share big files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archives, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole objective is to share files, since it does not support site uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either obtain a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to read a list of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to open .html or .php web site files in your web browser. Free file storage services frequently include advertisements next to the download links, while a timer obliges you to wait for a given interval of time to view them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you own a paid file hosting plan, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, and also there is no limit with regard to the download speed or the file size.

At present, with the help of the cPanel hosting companies, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more trendy "cloud hosting". This is a totally improper interpretation of the real denotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting system would assign the tasks at hand between autonomous packs of web servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending various web site hosting services (electronic mail, disk space, statistics, DNS, databases, hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is only a variety of a disk space hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; given suppliers provide a hosting service for pictures only. This hosting kind is appropriate if you would like to share a big number of images with buddies or partners since the solution is commonly free of cost. You will obtain a randomly generated link for each image or album and you can then share this link. As with the file storage solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the solution cannot be utilized for websites.

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

- Video hosting: this solution enables you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a particular video file, or you can embed the video file in your web page that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of using this approach in lieu of uploading the video clip in a web hosting account is that the video brings about a certain amount of central processing unit load, so with a handful of video clips and several hundred site viewers, you may have a hard time with your site hosting reserves. Embedding the video will permit you to own as many video files as you would like without hassling about system quotas.

- Web page hosting: this is the service that you require if you would like to own a site. To a certain degree, it embodies all of the aforementioned hosting categories since, along with your websites, you can also host pictures and files, you can create databases and e-mails, upload video files, and so on. At MTBN.NET, for instance, you can see web hosting and dedicated web hosting packages that allow you to get all of the aforesaid solutions in one single location. There may be restrictions based on the sort of hosting solution that you've picked - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting package, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web page hosting account may be better or worse juxtaposed to the customary email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are meant for particular content solely.
