Classes of hosting services

A hosting solution means saving and/or sharing specific content on a server handled by a website hosting vendor. There are various classes of hosting services used for different aims, so let's have a glance at them. Doing so, you can pick what you need, depending on whether you'd like to build a web page, electronic mail accounts, or to share files with comrades and colleagues.

- File hosting: a solution furnished by given companies, which permits you to share huge files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived documents, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole aim is to share files, since it does not offer web site uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either get a randomly created download link for each of them, or you will be able to explore a record of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to load .html or .php web files in your browser. Free-of-cost file storage services frequently involve adverts beside the download links, while a timer obliges you to await a specific interval of time to observe them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you own a paid file storage package, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download right away, and also there is no restriction with regard to the download speed or the file size.

Nowadays, with the help of the cPanel hosting distributors, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more faddish "cloud hosting". This is a totally false explanation of the real denotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting system would divide the load between autonomous stacks of hosting servers in a cluster, which are committed to attending various site hosting services (mail, web space, stats, DNS, databases, site hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is merely a sort of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; certain suppliers provide a hosting service for images exclusively. This hosting variant is suitable if you wish to share an immense quantity of pics with buddies or partners since the service is generally free of charge. You will get a random link for each image or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the service cannot be used for websites.

- E-mail hosting: a solution committed to administering your e-mail accounts. Some providers provide web hosting solutions for web pages, but do not provide an email service. If you desire to launch an email address with your domain name but do not want to run a site, then the e-mail hosting service is what you require. You can create email address accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domains. The email hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP servers.

- Video hosting: this solution enables you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a particular video file, or you can embed the video clip in your site that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of availing of this method instead of uploading the video in a web hosting account is that the video file generates a given amount of CPU load, so with a few video clips and several hundred web page visitors, you may have difficulty with your site hosting quotas. Embedding the video clip will allow you to use as many video clips as you wish without worrying about system resources.

- Web hosting: this is the solution that you require if you would like to run a website. To some extent, it contains all of the abovementioned hosting forms since, along with your web sites, you can also host pics and files, you can have databases and e-mail addresses, upload videos, etc. At 50Webs Web Hosting, for example, you can view web hosting and dedicated server hosting solutions that permit you to get all of the aforesaid services in a single place. There may be restrictions based on the type of hosting solution that you've picked - a free hosting plan, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your hosting plan may be better or worse juxtaposed to the normal e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are devised for specific content exclusively.
