How Do Web Hosting Packages Operate?
A web hosting service is related to stashing and/or sharing specific web content on a web hosting server run by a web hosting distributor. There are various types of hosting services used for different goals, so let's survey these. In this way, you can determine what you want, on the basis of whether you'd like to establish a weblog, mail accounts, or to share files with buddies and acquaintances.
- File hosting: a service supplied by some companies, which lets you share large files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archives, etc. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only objective is to share files, since it does not support site uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either get an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to see a roster of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to view .html or .php web site files in your browser. Free-of-cost file hosting services often include advertisements beside the download links, while a timer obliges you to wait for a certain spell of time to see them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you purchase a paid file hosting plan, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download at once, and also there is no limit in regard to the download speed or the file size.
At the moment, with the assistance of the cPanel web hosting providers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modern "cloud web hosting". This is a thoroughly fallacious interpretation of the real definition of "cloud hosting". A real cloud web hosting environment would divide the tasks at hand between individual stacks of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are committed to serving miscellaneous web hosting services (mail, web space, statistics, DNS, databases, website hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting service is just a brand of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud web hosting one. It's not even near.
- Image hosting: close to file hosting; specific providers provide a hosting service for pictures exclusively. This hosting type is suitable if you would like to share a large number of pics with mates or colleagues since the service is commonly free. You will get a randomly generated link for each pic 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 websites.
- E-mail hosting: a solution devoted to handling your mails. Some companies provide web hosting services for web pages, but do not offer an email service. If you would like to get an email address with your domain name but do not want to run a site, then the email web hosting service is what you want. You can set up email box accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domain name. The e-mail hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.
- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a given video file, or you can embed the video file in your web page that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of utilizing this approach instead of uploading the video clip in a web hosting account is that the video generates a given amount of CPU load, so with a few videos and several hundred site visitors, you may have a problem with your web hosting quotas. Embedding the video file will allow you to administer as many video clips as you want without bothering about system reserves.
- Web hosting: this is the service that you require if you wish to keep a site. To some degree, it includes all of the aforementioned hosting forms since, along with your websites, you can also host pics and files, you can run databases and e-mail addresses, upload video clips, and so on. At Hepsia.Co you can have a look at shared web hosting and dedicated hosting packages that enable you to get all of the aforesaid services in a single place. There may be limitations depending on the form of web hosting service that you've opted for - a free hosting plan, a paid shared web hosting account, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web hosting account may be better or worse in comparison with the normal e-mail/file/video/image hosting packages that are meant for specific web content only.
