Varieties of hosting solutions

A hosting solution applies to stockpiling and/or sharing specific web content on a hosting server hosted by a hosting supplier. There are various forms of hosting services utilized for different aims, so let's explore these. Doing so, you can elect what you need, on the basis of whether you'd like to build a weblog, mail accounts, or to share files with chums and colleagues.

- File hosting: a service made available by given file storage providers, which enables you to share immense files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived files, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole objective is to share files, since it does not offer web site uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either obtain an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to examine a register of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to open .html or .php web files in your web browser. Free-of-cost file storage solutions are often supported by showing ads next to the download links, while a timer makes you await a given amount of time to perceive them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you run a paid file storage account, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download immediately, and also there is no restriction with regard to the download speed or the file size.

Now, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting providers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more voguish "cloud hosting". This is a totally unsuitable interpretation of the literal connotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting environment would split the load between autonomous groups of web servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending various web page hosting services (electronic mail, disk storage, statistics, DNS, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is simply a brand of a disk storage hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; given vendors provide a hosting solution for images only. This hosting variant is appropriate if you want to share a great amount of pics with comrades or acquaintances since the solution is usually free of cost. You will receive a random link for each and every picture or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file storage service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be used for websites.

- E-mail hosting: a solution committed to tackling your e-mail accounts. Some suppliers offer site hosting services for sites, but do not offer an e-mail hosting solution. If you wish to create a mail address with your domain name but do not wish to have a web site, then the email hosting solution is what you require. You can open e-mailbox accounts and administer them, but there will be no web solution for the domains. The email hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP servers.

- Video hosting: this service enables you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a certain video clip, or you can embed the video in your website that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of utilizing this method in lieu of uploading the video in a web hosting account is that the video clip produces a given amount of CPU load, so with a handful of video clips and several hundred web site visitors, you may have difficulty with your web hosting quotas. Embedding the video will permit you to administer as many videos as you wish without bothering about system resources.

- Website hosting: this is the service that you need if you want to run a website. To some degree, it includes all of the aforementioned hosting varieties since, along with your sites, you can also host pics and files, you can create databases and electronic mail accounts, upload video clips, etc. At kap2, for instance, you can take a glance at web hosting and dedicated server hosting solutions that enable you to get all of the abovementioned solutions in a single location. There may be restrictions based on the sort of hosting solution that you've chosen - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting package, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your site hosting package may be better or worse compared to the normal email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are meant for specific web content only.
