A web hosting service is connected with hoarding and/or sharing certain content on a hosting server managed by a web hosting supplier. There are different classes of hosting services utilized for different aims, so let's have a glance at them. In this way, you can determine what you need, based on whether you'd like to build a web page, email mailbox accounts, or to share files with friends and partners.
- File hosting: a solution made available by particular hosts, which permits you to share big files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived documents, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only objective is to share files, since it does not support web page 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 explore a roster of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to view .html or .php web page files in your browser. Free-of-cost file hosting services often involve adverts next to the download links, while a timer compels you to wait for a given span of time to see them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you get a paid file hosting package, there are no restrictions 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.
At the moment, with the help of the cPanel web hosting wholesalers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modish "cloud web hosting". This is a totally incongruous interpretation of the literal meaning of "cloud hosting". A real cloud web hosting environment would split the load between different sets of hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending various web hosting services (mail, disk storage, stats, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is just a brand of a data storage hosting solution, not a cloud web hosting one. It's not even close.
- Image hosting: close to file hosting; given providers offer a hosting solution for images solely. This hosting brand is appropriate if you want to share a large amount of pics with buddies or acquaintances since the solution is mostly free. You will obtain a random link for every picture or album and you can then share this link. As with the file storage service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the solution cannot be used for web sites.
- E-mail hosting: a service devoted to administering your email box accounts. Some suppliers offer web hosting services for websites, but do not offer an e-mail hosting service. If you wish to open an e-mail address with your domain but do not wish to run a web site, then the e-mail web hosting solution is what you require. You can create e-mailbox accounts and manage them, but there will be no web solution for the domain name. The email hosting service includes 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 certain video file, or you can embed the video in your site that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of utilizing this approach in lieu of uploading the video in a hosting account is that the video produces a specific amount of CPU load, so with a couple of video files and a few hundred site viewers, you may have a hard time with your web hosting reserves. Embedding the video file will allow you to own as many videos as you want to without hassling about system reserves.
- Web hosting: this is the solution that you require if you wish to run a site. To a certain degree, it contains all of the aforesaid hosting brands since, along with your web sites, you can also host images and files, you can set up databases and mail address accounts, upload video files, and so on. At ZrainMedia Hosting you can take a look at shared web hosting and dedicated hosting accounts that enable you to have all of the abovementioned solutions in one location. There may be limits depending on the kind of web hosting service that you've picked - a free hosting package, a paid shared web hosting package, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web hosting account may be better or worse in comparison with the customary email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are purposed for particular web content only.
