- File hosting: a solution made available by particular vendors, which allows you to share large files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archives, etc. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only aim is to share files, since it does not support web page uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either receive a randomly created download link for each of them, or you will be able to survey an index of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to load .html or .php web page files in your browser. Free file hosting services often involve advertisements next to the download links, while a timer compels you to await a certain span of time to view them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you own a paid file hosting package, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download straight away, and also there is no limitation as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.
These days, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting retailers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more trendy "cloud web hosting". This is a totally incorrect explanation of the real denotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud web hosting platform would split the workload between individual bunches of hosting servers in a cluster, which are devoted to serving different web hosting services (email, data storage, stats, DNS, databases, website hosting CP, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is merely a sort of a disk space hosting solution, not a cloud web hosting one. It's not even close.
- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; specific corporations offer a hosting solution for images solely. This hosting type is suitable if you wish to share a great quantity of images with pals or partners since the service is mostly free. You will obtain a randomly generated link for every pic 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 utilized for websites.
- E-mail hosting: a solution dedicated to taking care of your email mailbox accounts. Some firms provide web hosting services for websites, but do not provide an email hosting service. If you want to manage an email address with your domain but do not want to possess a website, then the e-mail web hosting service is what you require. You can create mail accounts and administer them, but there will be no web service for the domain name. The email hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.
- Video hosting: this solution enables you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to some video file, or you can embed the video clip in your website that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of utilizing this approach instead of uploading the video in a hosting account is that the video brings about a particular amount of central processing unit load, so with a few video files and a few hundred viewers, you may have difficulty with your web hosting supplies. Embedding the video will permit you to utilize as many video files as you would like without bothering about system quotas.
- Web hosting: this is the service that you require if you desire to have a site. To a certain degree, it includes all of the aforementioned hosting groups since, along with your web pages, you can also host images and files, you can run databases and e-mailbox accounts, upload video clips, etc. At TATDROM WEB SHOP you can have a peek at shared web hosting and dedicated hosting packages that enable you to get all of the aforementioned solutions in one place. There may be limits based on the form of web hosting service that you've chosen - a free hosting account, a paid shared web hosting plan, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web hosting plan may be better or worse compared with the normal e-mail/file/video/image hosting accounts that are designed for particular content only.
