Groups of hosting services

A hosting solution entails saving and/or sharing given web content on a server managed by a web hosting company. There are different groups of hosting services utilized for various ends, so let's survey them. In that way, you can elect what you need, depending on whether you wish to set up a blog, email accounts, or to share files with pals and colleagues.

- File hosting: a solution distributed by some vendors, 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 single aim is to share files, since it does not offer web page uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either get an accidentally 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 be unable to open .html or .php web files in your browser. Free-of-cost file hosting packages often include ads next to the download links, while a timer obliges you to await a given period of time to observe them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you have a paid file hosting plan, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download at once, and also there is no restriction as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

At the moment, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting companies, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more trendy "cloud hosting". This is a thoroughly distorted interpretation of the literal connotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting environment would distribute the tasks at hand between different sets of web servers in a cluster, which are devoted to serving different webspace hosting services (electronic mail, storage space, stats, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is simply a brand of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; given corporations offer a hosting solution for images exclusively. This hosting type is good if you would like to share a large amount of pictures with buddies or associates since the solution is mostly free of cost. You will get a random link for every pic or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the solution cannot be utilized for websites.

- Email hosting: a service dedicated to administering your email address accounts. Some vendors provide site hosting solutions for sites, but do not supply an e-mail hosting service. If you want to launch an e-mail address with your domain name but do not desire to run a web site, then the e-mail hosting solution is what you require. You can create e-mail accounts and manage them, but there will be no web service for the domains. The email 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 clip, or you can embed the video in your web page that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of utilizing this method instead of uploading the video clip in a web hosting account is that the video generates a given amount of central processing unit load, so with a bunch of video clips and a few hundred website visitors, you may have a problem with your webspace hosting resources. Embedding the video will permit you to use 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 own a website. To some extent, it comprises all of the aforementioned hosting forms since, along with your web sites, you can also host pics and files, you can create databases and e-mail accounts, upload video clips, etc. At Blade-Conspire International Group, for example, you can have a glance at web hosting and dedicated web hosting solutions that allow you to get all of the abovementioned services in a single location. There may be limitations depending on the type of hosting solution that you've picked - a free hosting plan, a paid shared hosting plan, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your site hosting package may be better or worse in comparison with the conventional e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are purposed for particular content solely.
