Varieties of hosting solutions

A hosting solution appertains to hoarding and/or sharing certain content on a web server hosted by a web hosting supplier. There are various classes of hosting services used for various purposes, so let's survey them. Doing so, you can pick what you want, depending on whether you wish to run a website, mail accounts, or to share files with friends and partners.

- File hosting: a solution provided by particular hosts, which lets you share large files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived documents, etc. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only goal is to share files, since it does not support 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 survey an index of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to view .html or .php web files in your web browser. Free-of-cost file storage plans frequently include ads next to the download links, while a timer compels you to await a particular stretch of time to see them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you purchase a paid file hosting package, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, and also there is no restriction when it comes to the download speed or the file size.

Nowadays, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting companies, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modish "cloud hosting". This is a completely mistaken interpretation of the literal connotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting platform would distribute the workload between different bunches of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending miscellaneous website hosting services (electronic mail, disk space, stats, DNS, databases, Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is simply a type of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: close to file hosting; given providers provide a hosting service for pictures solely. This hosting brand is appropriate if you want to share an enormous quantity of images with buddies or partners since the solution is typically free of cost. You will receive a randomly generated link for each picture or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file storage solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be used for web pages.

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

- Video hosting: this service allows you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a given video clip, or you can embed the video file in your website that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of using this method in lieu of uploading the video clip in a hosting account is that the video file produces a specific amount of central processing unit load, so with a couple of video clips and a few hundred web site viewers, you may have trouble with your web site hosting supplies. Embedding the video clip will allow you to keep as many video files as you want without worrying about system reserves.

- Website hosting: this is the service that you need if you would like to own a website. To a certain extent, it consists of all of the aforesaid hosting kinds since, along with your websites, you can also host pictures and files, you can have databases and electronic mail accounts, upload video files, and so on. At NTC Hosting, for instance, you can explore web hosting and dedicated hosting solutions that allow you to get all of the aforementioned services in one place. There may be limits based on the form of hosting service that you've picked - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting package, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web page hosting package may be better or worse compared with the customary e-mail/file/video/image hosting packages that are tailored for specific content exclusively.
