Kinds of hosting solutions

A hosting solution appertains to hoarding and/or sharing given web content on a server run by a hosting provider. There are various kinds of hosting services utilized for different goals, so let's have a glimpse at them. In that way, you can choose what you want, depending on whether you desire to launch a web site, email accounts, or to share files with chums and associates.

- File hosting: a service distributed by certain companies, which lets you share huge files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archives, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole objective is to share files, since it does not offer web page uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either get an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to explore a table of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to load .html or .php web site files in your browser. Free-of-charge file storage accounts often include ads beside the download links, while a timer compels you to await a particular spell of time to view them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you possess a paid file storage plan, there are no limitations 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 traders, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more trendy "cloud hosting". This is a thoroughly twisted interpretation of the real definition of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting platform would distribute the workload between separate hosts of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending different hosting services (email, web space, stats, DNS, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is only a sort of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; given firms provide a hosting service for images only. This hosting variant is good if you desire to share an enormous number of images with chums or partners since the service is typically free. You will get a randomly generated link for each and every image or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be used for web pages.

- Email hosting: a solution devoted to tackling your mails. Some companies provide site hosting solutions for web pages, but do not provide an email hosting solution. If you want to open a mail address with your domain name but do not desire to possess a web site, then the email hosting solution is what you require. You can open electronic mail accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domains. The email hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service enables you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a certain video clip, or you can embed the video clip in your web site that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of availing of this approach instead of uploading the video in a web hosting account is that the video clip brings about a specific amount of central processing unit load, so with a handful of video files and several hundred web site viewers, you may have a problem with your site hosting quotas. Embedding the video file will enable you to manage as many video clips as you desire without hassling about system supplies.

- Web site hosting: this is the solution that you need if you would like to have a web site. To a certain extent, it contains all of the aforementioned hosting types since, along with your web sites, you can also host images and files, you can keep databases and mailbox accounts, upload video clips, and so on. At EdRic Hosting, for instance, you can examine web hosting and dedicated hosting services that permit you to have all of the abovementioned solutions in one location. There may be restrictions based on the kind of hosting service that you've selected - a free hosting plan, a paid shared hosting plan, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your website hosting package may be better or worse compared to the regular email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are tailored for specific content only.
