Groups of hosting solutions

A hosting solution appertains to keeping and/or sharing given content on a web hosting server administered by a website hosting provider. There are various kinds of hosting services utilized for various ends, so let's have a gaze at these. Doing so, you can decide what you want, based on whether you'd like to run a web page, mailbox accounts, or to share files with chums and associates.

- File hosting: a solution offered by particular hosts, which permits you to share huge files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived files, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its only goal is to share files, since it does not support web page uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either obtain a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to examine an index of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to load .html or .php web files in your web browser. Free-of-charge file storage services are frequently supported by displaying adverts beside the download links, while a timer obliges you to wait for a specific period of time to see them. A given file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you own a paid file hosting package, there are no restrictions 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.

Now, with the help of the cPanel hosting firms, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more trendy "cloud hosting". This is an entirely false explanation of the real denotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting environment would allot the tasks at hand between autonomous stacks of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending miscellaneous web site hosting services (email, storage space, stats, DNS, databases, hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is just a sort of a disk space hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; specific providers offer a hosting solution for pictures exclusively. This hosting variant is suitable if you desire to share a large quantity of images with comrades or colleagues since the service is usually free. You will receive a randomly generated link for each image or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the solution cannot be used for web pages.

- E-mail hosting: a solution committed to handling your email mailbox accounts. Some distributors provide site hosting services for websites, but do not supply an email hosting solution. If you would like to keep an email address with your domain name but do not wish to run a web site, then the email hosting service is what you require. You can set up electronic mail accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting service for the domains. The e-mail hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service enables you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a particular video clip, or you can embed the video in your website that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of utilizing this approach instead of uploading the video clip in a hosting account is that the video brings about a specific amount of central processing unit load, so with a handful of video clips and a few hundred site viewers, you may have trouble with your web hosting reserves. Embedding the video clip will permit you to administer as many video clips as you want without hassling about system resources.

- Web site hosting: this is the service that you require if you wish to run a web site. To a certain extent, it embodies all of the aforementioned hosting variants since, along with your sites, you can also host pictures and files, you can have databases and emails, upload video files, and so on. At SynNetHost, for instance, you can have a glance at web hosting and dedicated web hosting services that permit you to get all of the aforementioned services in one single place. There may be limitations depending on the sort of hosting solution that you've settled on - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting plan, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your site hosting plan may be better or worse juxtaposed to the ordinary e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are devised for particular content only.
