How Web Hosting Plans Work
A web hosting service includes stockpiling and/or sharing particular content on a web hosting server run by a web hosting distributor. There are various groups of hosting services used for different goals, so let's have a gaze at these. In this way, you can determine what you want, based on whether you desire to build a blog, email box accounts, or to share files with friends and colleagues.
- File hosting: a service made available by various web hosts, which allows you to share immense files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived files, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole purpose is to share files, since it does not offer site uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either receive an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to explore a table of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to see .html or .php web page files in your browser. Free file hosting packages are frequently supported by displaying adverts next to the download links, while a timer compels you to await a certain span of time to perceive them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you run a paid file storage package, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download at once, and also there is no restriction as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.
At present, with the help of the cPanel web hosting firms, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more stylish "cloud web hosting". This is an entirely distorted explanation of the actual meaning of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud web hosting system would divide the tasks at hand between independent bunches of web servers in a cluster, which are devoted to serving miscellaneous web hosting services (electronic mail, data storage, stats, DNS, databases, CP, etc.) So, the file hosting service is simply a type of a storage space hosting solution, not a cloud web hosting one. It's not even close.
- Image hosting: close to file hosting; specific vendors provide a hosting solution for images solely. This hosting variant is suitable if you want to share a vast number of pictures with comrades or associates since the service is mostly free of cost. You will obtain a random link for each pic or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be used for websites.
- E-mail hosting: a service dedicated to administering your e-mail aliases. Some firms provide web hosting services for web pages, but do not provide an email solution. If you want to manage an email address with your domain name but do not desire to keep a website, then the email web hosting service is what you want. You can create e-mail address accounts and manage them, but there will be no web solution for the domain name. The e-mail hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.
- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a specific video file, or you can embed the video clip in your web 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 file generates a certain amount of central processing unit load, so with a bunch of video files and several hundred viewers, you may have a hard time with your web hosting resources. Embedding the video clip will allow you to manage as many video clips as you wish without worrying about system resources.
- Web hosting: this is the solution that you need if you want to run a site. To some degree, it involves all of the aforementioned hosting groups since, along with your web pages, you can also host images and files, you can keep databases and e-mailbox accounts, upload video clips, and so on. At Host for your .Com you can have a glance at shared web hosting and dedicated hosting services that permit you to have all of the aforementioned services in a single place. There may be limits depending on the kind of web hosting service that you've chosen - a free web hosting account, a paid shared web hosting account, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web hosting package may be better or worse compared to the customary email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are devised for specific content only.
