Categories of hosting services

A hosting solution refers to keeping and/or sharing specific content on a web hosting server hosted by a web hosting supplier. There are different groups of hosting services used for various aims, so let's take a gaze at these. In that way, you can decide what you need, depending on whether you'd like to build a web site, email accounts, or to share files with friends and partners.

- File hosting: a service distributed by particular firms, which lets you share enormous files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived documents, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole designation is to share files, since it does not support web site uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either obtain a randomly created download link for each of them, or you will be able to examine a list of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to see .html or .php web page files in your browser. Free-of-charge file storage solutions frequently involve advertisements beside the download links, while a timer makes you await a specific spell of time to observe them. A given file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you own a paid file hosting plan, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download immediately, and also there is no limitation as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

At the moment, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting corporations, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more trendy "cloud hosting". This is a completely wrong explanation of the actual definition of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting environment would apportion the load between different bunches of servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending various web page hosting services (email, data storage, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting CP, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is simply a sort of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; some providers provide a hosting service for pictures only. This hosting variant is good if you desire to share a large number of pics with buddies or associates since the solution is commonly free. You will receive a random link for each and every pic or album and you can then share this link. As with the file storage service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be used for web pages.

- E-mail hosting: a service devoted to administering your e-mail accounts. Some corporations offer web space hosting services for web pages, but do not supply an email hosting service. If you would like to manage an email address with your domain name but do not desire to run a site, then the email hosting solution is what you need. You can set up e-mail box accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domains. The e-mail hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.

- Video hosting: this solution permits you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a certain video, or you can embed the video clip in your web site that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of availing of this approach in lieu of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video file produces a particular amount of CPU load, so with a handful of videos and a few hundred site viewers, you may have a hard time with your web hosting reserves. Embedding the video will enable you to run as many video clips as you wish without hassling about system resources.

- Web hosting: this is the service that you require if you want to have a website. To a certain degree, it encompasses all of the aforementioned hosting kinds since, along with your websites, you can also host images and files, you can set up databases and e-mail accounts, upload video files, etc. At Mujica Hosting, for example, you can have a peek at web hosting and dedicated server hosting solutions that permit you to get all of the abovementioned solutions in a single location. There may be restrictions depending on the type of hosting solution that you've picked - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting plan, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web page hosting package may be better or worse in comparison with the normal email/file/video/image hosting packages that are conceived for particular web content solely.
