Kinds of hosting solutions

A hosting solution means stockpiling and/or sharing given content on a web server managed by a web hosting company. There are various kinds of hosting services used for various ends, so let's take a glimpse at them. Thus, you can pick what you need, based on whether you desire to have a website, electronic mail accounts, or to share files with pals and colleagues.

- File hosting: a service delivered by various web hosts, which enables you to share enormous files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived files, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its only designation is to share files, since it does not offer website uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either get an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to explore a record of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to view .html or .php web files in your browser. Free-of-charge file hosting plans are often supported by exhibiting ads beside the download links, while a timer makes you await a given amount of time to perceive them. A given file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you own a paid file storage account, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download straight away, and also there is no restriction with regard to the download speed or the file size.

At the moment, with the help of the cPanel hosting providers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more stylish "cloud hosting". This is an entirely awry explanation of the literal meaning of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting environment would split the load between autonomous stacks of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving various web page hosting services (electronic mail, storage space, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is simply a type of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; some companies provide a hosting solution for images only. This hosting variant is suitable if you would like to share a great amount of pics with pals or associates since the service is usually free of charge. You will get a random link for each picture or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be used for sites.

- Email hosting: a solution committed to administering your e-mail aliases. Some companies offer webspace hosting services for web pages, but do not supply an email hosting service. If you desire to get an e-mail address with your domain name but do not wish to own a website, then the e-mail hosting solution is what you require. You can create e-mail address accounts and administer them, but there will be no web solution for the domains. The email hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.

- Video hosting: this solution permits you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a particular video, or you can embed the video in your web site that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of availing of this method in lieu of uploading the video in a web hosting account is that the video file produces a given amount of CPU load, so with several video clips and several hundred site viewers, you may have a problem with your web hosting quotas. Embedding the video clip will allow you to have as many videos as you would like without hassling about system quotas.

- Web hosting: this is the solution that you need if you wish to possess a site. To some degree, it comprises all of the aforesaid hosting types since, along with your sites, you can also host pics and files, you can set up databases and e-mail box accounts, upload videos, etc. At Praga Web Hosting, for instance, you can have a glimpse at web hosting and dedicated server hosting services that enable you to have all of the aforesaid services in one place. There may be limits based on the type of hosting service that you've settled on - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting package, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your webspace hosting package may be better or worse compared with the usual e-mail/file/video/image hosting accounts that are designed for specific web content exclusively.
