Categories of hosting solutions

A hosting solution entails hoarding and/or sharing particular web content on a hosting server run by a hosting distributor. There are various kinds of hosting services used for various ends, so let's review these. Doing so, you can choose what you need, based on whether you wish to set up a web page, e-mails, or to share files with friends and associates.

- File hosting: a solution delivered by various providers, which permits you to share enormous files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived files, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its single goal is to share files, since it does not support web page uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either receive an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to see an index of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to open .html or .php web page files in your browser. Free-of-cost file hosting services frequently include advertisements by the download links, while a timer compels you to await a given spell of time to see them. A given file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you possess 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 restriction as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

At the moment, with the help of the cPanel hosting traders, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more trendy "cloud hosting". This is a thoroughly incongruous explanation of the literal meaning of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting platform would allocate the load between separate stacks of hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending different web hosting services (mail, data storage, stats, DNS, databases, web page hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is merely a brand of a data storage hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; certain vendors offer a hosting service for pictures only. This hosting kind is appropriate if you desire to share a huge number of pics with comrades or partners since the service is mostly free of cost. You will receive a random 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 compatible, so the service cannot be used for sites.

- Email hosting: a service committed to tackling your mail aliases. Some providers provide site hosting solutions for sites, but do not offer an e-mail hosting solution. If you desire to set up an email address with your domain name but do not want to possess a site, then the e-mail hosting service is what you want. You can open e-mail box accounts and manage them, but there will be no web service for the domains. The email hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service allows you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a specific video file, or you can embed the video in your site that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of availing of this method instead of uploading the video in a hosting account is that the video file brings about a given amount of CPU load, so with a handful of videos and several hundred web site visitors, you may have difficulty with your web page hosting supplies. Embedding the video clip will permit you to manage as many video files as you wish without bothering about system supplies.

- Website hosting: this is the service that you need if you would like to run a site. To some degree, it involves all of the aforementioned hosting variants since, along with your web sites, you can also host pics and files, you can create databases and email mailbox accounts, upload videos, etc. At UNLI CLOUD, for instance, you can have a glance at web hosting and dedicated web server hosting plans that allow you to get all of the aforesaid solutions in one place. There may be limits depending on the form of hosting service that you've opted for - a free hosting plan, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web space hosting package may be better or worse juxtaposed to the conventional e-mail/file/video/image hosting accounts that are planned for particular content solely.
