Categories of hosting services

A hosting service suggests hoarding and/or sharing certain web content on a hosting server hosted by a website hosting company. There are various sorts of hosting services utilized for different purposes, so let's take a gaze at these. In this way, you can conclude what you need, on the basis of whether you desire to establish a web page, email addresses, or to share files with chums and associates.

- File hosting: a service provided by some web hosts, which permits 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 designation is to share files, since it does not support website uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either get a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to see a roll of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to load .html or .php web files in your browser. Free-of-charge file hosting accounts are frequently supported by displaying ads next to the download links, while a timer makes you await a certain interval of time to observe them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you possess a paid file storage account, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download right away, and also there is no restriction as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

At the moment, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting wholesalers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modish "cloud hosting". This is a totally twisted explanation of the real denotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting system would allot the workload between separate packs of hosting servers in a cluster, which are devoted to serving miscellaneous web page hosting services (email, storage space, statistics, DNS, databases, web site hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting service is merely a sort of a data storage hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; given firms provide a hosting service for images exclusively. This hosting kind is suitable if you would like to share a large quantity of pics with friends or associates since the solution is commonly free. You will receive a randomly generated link for each and every image or album and you can then share this link. As with the file storage service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be used for web pages.

- Email hosting: a solution committed to taking care of your e-mails. Some vendors provide web hosting solutions for web pages, but do not offer an email hosting solution. If you wish to own an email address with your domain name but do not want to possess a website, then the e-mail hosting solution is what you need. You can set up email box accounts and manage them, but there will be no web service for the domains. The e-mail hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.

- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a given video clip, or you can embed the video file in your site that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of availing of this approach instead of uploading the video file in a hosting account is that the video clip creates a particular amount of central processing unit load, so with a handful of video clips and several hundred web page viewers, you may have difficulty with your hosting resources. Embedding the video clip will enable you to have as many video files as you want to without worrying about system reserves.

- Web page hosting: this is the service that you require if you desire to have a website. To some degree, it includes all of the abovementioned hosting types since, along with your web pages, you can also host images and files, you can create databases and mails, upload videos, and so on. At TSG Host, for instance, you can have a look at web hosting and dedicated server hosting services that enable you to have all of the aforementioned solutions in a single place. There may be restrictions depending on the kind of hosting solution that you've settled on - a free hosting plan, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your web site hosting package may be better or worse juxtaposed to the regular e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are tailored for specific content solely.
