Groups of hosting services

A hosting solution appertains to stashing and/or sharing given content on a web hosting server administered by a website hosting distributor. There are different sorts of hosting services utilized for various goals, so let's take a gaze at them. Thus, you can conclude what you want, depending on whether you'd like to have a web page, e-mail address accounts, or to share files with pals and colleagues.

- File hosting: a solution furnished by various firms, which permits you to share huge files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archives, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only objective is to share files, since it does not offer site uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either get an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to examine a list of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to view .html or .php web site files in your web browser. Free-of-charge file hosting packages often include ads by the download links, while a timer makes you await a specific spell of time to observe them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you buy a paid file storage package, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download right away, and also there is no limit with regard to the download speed or the file size.

Now, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting vendors, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more stylish "cloud hosting". This is a completely inapt explanation of the real definition of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting platform would allot the tasks at hand between autonomous bunches of hosting servers in a cluster, which are committed to attending various web hosting services (email, disk space, statistics, DNS, databases, Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is merely a brand of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; some providers provide a hosting service for pictures only. This hosting kind is appropriate if you want to share an enormous number of images with mates or partners since the service is typically free. You will get a randomly generated link for 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 solution cannot be used for sites.

- E-mail hosting: a service devoted to tackling your mails. Some suppliers offer web site hosting services for websites, but do not supply an email service. If you wish to create an e-mail address with your domain name but do not want to have a site, then the email hosting service is what you require. You can create e-mail box accounts and manage them, but there will be no web service for the domains. The e-mail hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP servers.

- Video hosting: this solution enables you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to some video clip, or you can embed the video clip in your web site that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of using this method in lieu of uploading the video in a hosting account is that the video clip creates a given amount of central processing unit load, so with a few video clips and a few hundred web site visitors, you may have a problem with your web site hosting supplies. Embedding the video clip will enable you to have as many video files as you would like without hassling about system reserves.

- Web site hosting: this is the service that you need if you wish to own a site. To a certain extent, it includes all of the aforesaid hosting categories since, along with your websites, you can also host pics and files, you can run databases and mailbox accounts, upload video files, and so on. At NinjiHost, for instance, you can examine web hosting and dedicated server hosting solutions that permit you to get all of the aforementioned services in one single location. There may be restrictions based on the form of hosting service that you've settled on - a free hosting plan, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your hosting plan may be better or worse compared with the regular email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are devised for particular content exclusively.
