Kinds of hosting solutions

A hosting solution applies to keeping and/or sharing specific content on a server administered by a website hosting distributor. There are various categories of hosting services utilized for different purposes, so let's take a glance at them. In that way, you can choose what you want, depending on whether you desire to have a web portal, email addresses, or to share files with pals and partners.

- File hosting: a solution supplied by some companies, which enables you to share big files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archives, etc. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only objective is to share files, since it does not support website uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either receive a randomly created download link for each of them, or you will be able to view a register of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to open .html or .php web page files in your browser. Free file hosting plans are frequently supported by displaying adverts beside the download links, while a timer compels you to wait for a given span of time to observe them. A given file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you buy a paid file hosting package, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, and also there is no limit when it comes to the download speed or the file size.

Now, with the help of the cPanel hosting wholesalers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more trendy "cloud hosting". This is a thoroughly incongruous explanation of the actual meaning of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting environment would split the tasks at hand between independent hosts of servers in a cluster, which are committed to attending miscellaneous site hosting services (email, disk space, stats, DNS, databases, web hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is merely a brand of a data storage hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: close to file hosting; specific companies offer a hosting service for pictures solely. This hosting type is good if you would like to share a big quantity of images with pals or partners since the solution is mostly free of charge. You will obtain a random link for each pic or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be utilized for web pages.

- E-mail hosting: a service dedicated to taking care of your e-mail accounts. Some vendors offer website hosting services for websites, but do not provide an e-mail hosting solution. If you desire to own a mail address with your domain name but do not want to own a site, then the email hosting solution is what you want. You can set up mail accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domains. The email hosting service 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 specific video, or you can embed the video file in your website that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of utilizing this method instead of uploading the video in a web hosting account is that the video file creates a specific amount of CPU load, so with a couple of video files and several hundred web page visitors, you may have a problem with your website hosting quotas. Embedding the video will permit you to keep as many videos as you desire without worrying about system supplies.

- Website hosting: this is the solution that you require if you want to keep a website. To a certain extent, it involves all of the abovementioned hosting categories since, along with your websites, you can also host pics and files, you can keep databases and email box accounts, upload video clips, etc. At Lonex, for instance, you can take a glimpse at web hosting and dedicated web hosting accounts that enable you to have all of the abovementioned solutions in one single location. There may be limitations depending on the sort of hosting service that you've settled on - a free hosting plan, a paid shared hosting package, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your web space hosting package may be better or worse compared to the conventional e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are conceived for particular web content exclusively.
