Types of hosting services

A hosting solution applies to storing and/or sharing given web content on a web hosting server managed by a hosting company. There are various kinds of hosting services utilized for various aims, so let's survey them. In that way, you can elect what you need, depending on whether you'd like to launch a web page, emails, or to share files with buddies and partners.

- File hosting: a solution offered by certain file storage providers, which lets you share enormous files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived files, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its single objective is to share files, since it does not support website uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either obtain an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to view a roll of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to see .html or .php web page files in your web browser. Free-of-charge file hosting plans are often supported by exhibiting ads next to the download links, while a timer compels you to wait for a particular interval of time to perceive them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you run a paid file hosting plan, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download straight away, and also there is no limitation in regard to the download speed or the file size.

Now, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting vendors, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more faddish "cloud hosting". This is an entirely awry interpretation of the actual connotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting platform would allot the load between separate bunches of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving different web page hosting services (electronic mail, storage space, statistics, DNS, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is simply a brand of a data storage hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: close to file hosting; given suppliers offer a hosting solution for pictures exclusively. This hosting brand is good if you desire to share a vast quantity of pictures with buddies or colleagues since the solution is usually free. You will receive a random 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 compatible, so the solution cannot be used for web pages.

- Email hosting: a solution dedicated to managing your emails. Some providers offer web space hosting solutions for web sites, but do not supply an email solution. If you want to own an email address with your domain name but do not want to own a site, then the e-mail hosting solution is what you require. You can set up mailbox accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domains. The e-mail hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.

- Video hosting: this solution permits you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to some video file, or you can embed the video file in your site that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of utilizing this method in lieu of uploading the video clip in a hosting account is that the video brings about a specific amount of central processing unit load, so with a handful of video clips and several hundred site visitors, you may have a problem with your web hosting reserves. Embedding the video file will enable you to run as many video clips 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 web site. To a certain degree, it embodies all of the aforesaid hosting sorts since, along with your web pages, you can also host pictures and files, you can run databases and e-mail box accounts, upload video clips, and so on. At NTC Hosting, for instance, you can take a peek at web hosting and dedicated hosting accounts that enable you to get all of the aforementioned solutions in a single location. There may be restrictions based on the kind 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 site hosting plan may be better or worse in comparison with the ordinary e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are made for particular content solely.
