Categories of hosting solutions

A hosting service means saving and/or sharing certain content on a web hosting server administered by a website hosting company. There are different types of hosting services utilized for various goals, so let's study these. In this way, you can choose what you want, depending on whether you'd like to own a blog, mail address accounts, or to share files with comrades and partners.

- File hosting: a solution supplied by certain web hosts, which allows you to share huge files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archives, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its sole objective is to share files, since it does not support site uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either receive an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to read a table of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to open .html or .php website files in your web browser. Free-of-charge file hosting solutions are frequently supported by displaying ads by the download links, while a timer forces you to await a certain amount of time to see them. A given file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you run a paid file hosting package, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, and also there is no limit in regard to the download speed or the file size.

These days, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting distributors, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more trendy "cloud hosting". This is a totally fallacious interpretation of the real connotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting system would split the tasks at hand between autonomous stacks of hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending various web space hosting services (mail, disk space, stats, DNS, databases, hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is simply a brand of a data storage hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; given providers provide a hosting solution for pictures exclusively. This hosting brand is suitable if you would like to share a huge quantity of images with friends or associates since the solution is mostly free of charge. You will get a randomly generated link for each picture or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be utilized for sites.

- E-mail hosting: a service dedicated to taking care of your email addresses. Some suppliers provide site hosting solutions for sites, but do not offer an e-mail hosting service. If you desire to keep an email address with your domain name but do not want to run a website, then the e-mail hosting solution is what you want. You can open email address accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domains. The e-mail hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.

- Video hosting: this solution enables you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a particular video, or you can embed the video file in your web site that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of availing of this method in lieu of uploading the video in a web hosting account is that the video file generates a particular amount of central processing unit load, so with a couple of video files and a few hundred website visitors, you may have difficulty with your webspace hosting reserves. Embedding the video clip will allow you to possess as many video files as you want to without hassling about system supplies.

- Web page hosting: this is the service that you need if you desire to own a site. To a certain extent, it contains all of the abovementioned hosting varieties since, along with your websites, you can also host pics and files, you can run databases and email mailbox accounts, upload videos, etc. At NTC Hosting, for example, you can explore web hosting and dedicated hosting services that permit you to have all of the aforesaid services in one location. There may be limitations depending on the kind of hosting service that you've selected - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting package, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your website hosting package may be better or worse compared with the typical e-mail/file/video/image hosting packages that are purposed for specific web content only.
