Sorts of hosting solutions

A hosting service means hoarding and/or sharing specific content on a web hosting server handled by a web hosting distributor. There are various classes of hosting services utilized for various purposes, so let's study them. In that way, you can elect what you want, depending on whether you wish to create a site, e-mail accounts, or to share files with comrades and partners.

- File hosting: a service offered by particular hosts, which lets you share big files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived files, etc. This solution is also known as file storage, and its single aim is to share files, since it does not offer site 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 explore 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 file hosting packages frequently involve adverts beside the download links, while a timer compels you to wait for a certain period of time to perceive them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you purchase a paid file hosting account, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download immediately, and also there is no limit when it comes to the download speed or the file size.

At the moment, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting suppliers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more fashionable "cloud hosting". This is a totally twisted explanation of the actual meaning of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting system would apportion the tasks at hand between different sets of web servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving different web site hosting services (email, data storage, stats, DNS, databases, web page hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is merely a type of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; specific providers provide a hosting solution for images only. This hosting kind is appropriate if you would like to share a huge amount of images with friends or colleagues since the service is typically free of charge. You will obtain a random link for every picture or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the solution cannot be used for sites.

- Email hosting: a service committed to administering your e-mail address accounts. Some companies provide hosting solutions for web sites, but do not supply an e-mail service. If you would like to keep an email address with your domain name but do not wish to run a website, then the e-mail hosting solution is what you require. You can open mailbox 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 mail servers.

- Video hosting: this solution permits you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a particular video, or you can embed the video file in your web page that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of utilizing this method instead of uploading the video in a hosting account is that the video produces a specific amount of CPU load, so with a couple of videos and a few hundred visitors, you may have difficulty with your web page hosting supplies. Embedding the video will enable you to manage as many video files as you wish without worrying about system quotas.

- Website hosting: this is the solution that you require if you desire to keep a site. To some extent, it involves all of the aforementioned hosting types since, along with your web pages, you can also host pics and files, you can create databases and email addresses, upload video clips, and so on. At ROSA HOSTING, for example, you can take a gaze at web hosting and dedicated web server hosting accounts that permit you to get all of the aforementioned solutions in one location. There may be limits based on the sort of hosting service that you've picked - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your website hosting plan may be better or worse in comparison with the regular email/file/video/image hosting packages that are made for specific web content only.
