Sorts of hosting services

A hosting solution refers to depositing and/or sharing certain web content on a web server administered by a hosting provider. There are different forms of hosting services used for various ends, so let's take a glance at these. In that way, you can conclude what you need, on the basis of whether you'd like to establish a weblog, electronic mail accounts, or to share files with mates and colleagues.

- File hosting: a solution provided by various providers, which enables you to share huge files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived files, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole goal is to share files, since it does not offer web site uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either receive an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to read an inventory of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to view .html or .php web page files in your browser. Free file storage solutions are frequently supported by showing advertisements next to the download links, while a timer makes you await a specific stretch of time to perceive them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you run a paid file storage account, there are no limitations 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.

These days, with the help of the cPanel hosting traders, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more fashionable "cloud hosting". This is a completely distorted explanation of the real denotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting system would divide the workload between independent hosts of servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending various site hosting services (email, storage space, stats, DNS, databases, website hosting CP, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is just a brand of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; specific vendors provide a hosting service for pictures only. This hosting brand is suitable if you wish to share an immense amount of pics with friends or partners since the solution is usually free. You will receive a randomly generated link for every picture or album and you can then share this link. As with the file storage solution, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the service cannot be used for sites.

- E-mail hosting: a service devoted to managing your e-mail box accounts. Some suppliers provide web space hosting solutions for sites, but do not offer an email hosting service. If you would like to have an e-mail address with your domain name but do not desire to run a website, then the e-mail hosting solution is what you need. You can open email mailbox accounts and administer them, but there will be no web service for the domains. The email hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP servers.

- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a certain video file, or you can embed the video in your site that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of availing of this method in lieu of uploading the video in a hosting account is that the video brings about a given amount of central processing unit load, so with a couple of video clips and several hundred web page viewers, you may have trouble with your website hosting supplies. Embedding the video will allow you to use as many video files as you would like without bothering about system supplies.

- Web page hosting: this is the service that you need if you wish to own a site. To a certain extent, it involves all of the abovementioned hosting categories since, along with your websites, you can also host pics and files, you can create databases and e-mail addresses, upload video clips, and so on. At DALJ GROUP, for instance, you can take a glimpse at web hosting and dedicated web hosting services that allow you to have all of the aforementioned solutions in one place. There may be restrictions based on the type of hosting solution that you've opted for - a free hosting account, 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 routine e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are intended for specific content only.
