Sorts of hosting solutions

A hosting service includes stockpiling and/or sharing certain web content on a web hosting server handled by a hosting supplier. There are various categories of hosting services utilized for various goals, so let's have a glimpse at them. In that way, you can conclude what you need, depending on whether you wish to set up a weblog, e-mail accounts, or to share files with mates and acquaintances.

- File hosting: a solution made available by some firms, which allows you to share huge files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archives, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its single goal is to share files, since it does not support web page uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either receive an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to survey an inventory of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to view .html or .php web files in your browser. Free file storage services are frequently supported by showing adverts by the download links, while a timer compels you to wait for a certain stretch of time to view them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you buy a paid file hosting package, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download immediately, and also there is no restriction when it comes to the download speed or the file size.

At present, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting distributors, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more faddish "cloud hosting". This is a thoroughly wrong explanation of the literal meaning of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting system would divide the tasks at hand between separate hosts of web servers in a cluster, which are devoted to serving different hosting services (electronic mail, disk space, statistics, DNS, databases, hosting CP, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is merely a variety of a data storage hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; some suppliers offer a hosting service for images exclusively. This hosting kind is appropriate if you wish to share an enormous number of pictures with comrades or associates since the solution is mostly free of cost. You will receive a random link for each and every picture or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the solution cannot be used for sites.

- Email hosting: a service committed to taking care of your e-mail addresses. Some distributors offer website hosting solutions for sites, but do not provide an email hosting solution. If you desire to set up a mail address with your domain name but do not wish to keep a site, then the e-mail hosting solution is what you need. You can create email box accounts and manage 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 solution enables you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a particular video file, or you can embed the video file in your website that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of using this method in lieu of uploading the video in a web hosting account is that the video file brings about a given amount of central processing unit load, so with a handful of video files and a few hundred web page visitors, you may have trouble with your webspace hosting supplies. Embedding the video clip will enable you to have as many video files as you wish without bothering about system resources.

- 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 kinds since, along with your sites, you can also host images and files, you can have databases and mails, upload video files, etc. At ICT WebPro Hosting, for instance, you can explore web hosting and dedicated web hosting solutions that enable you to get all of the aforesaid services in one place. There may be limitations based on the type of hosting solution that you've picked - a free hosting plan, a paid shared hosting plan, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your web page hosting package may be better or worse juxtaposed to the ordinary e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are devised for specific content solely.
