Web Hosting Services Description
A web hosting service pertains to stockpiling and/or sharing specific content on a hosting server hosted by a web hosting company. There are various sorts of hosting services utilized for different aims, so let's survey them. In that way, you can elect what you need, based on whether you wish to launch a site, email accounts, or to share files with buddies and associates.
- File hosting: a service delivered by some file storage providers, which permits you to share enormous files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, 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 web site uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either receive an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to view a record of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to view .html or .php web page files in your browser. Free file storage plans are frequently supported by displaying adverts by the download links, while a timer obliges you to wait for a certain span of time to perceive them. A given file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you run a paid file storage plan, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download at once, and also there is no limitation in 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 faddish "cloud web hosting". This is a thoroughly awry interpretation of the real connotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud web hosting system would allocate the load between different bunches of servers in a cluster, which are devoted to serving various web hosting services (email, disk space, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is merely a kind of a disk storage hosting solution, not a cloud web hosting one. It's not even near.
- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; certain firms offer a hosting solution for images exclusively. This hosting kind is suitable if you want to share a vast quantity of images with pals or partners since the solution is generally free. You will get a random link for each and every picture or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the service cannot be utilized for sites.
- E-mail hosting: a service dedicated to handling your e-mail box accounts. Some vendors offer web hosting services for websites, but do not provide an e-mail hosting service. If you want to set up an e-mail address with your domain but do not desire to own a web site, then the email web hosting solution is what you require. You can open mailbox accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting service for the domain. The email hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP servers.
- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a particular video file, or you can embed the video file in your website that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of using this approach in lieu of uploading the video file in a hosting account is that the video generates a certain amount of central processing unit load, so with a handful of video clips and a few hundred web site visitors, you may have a problem with your web hosting quotas. Embedding the video file will allow you to keep as many video clips as you wish without worrying about system quotas.
- Web hosting: this is the solution that you require if you wish to keep a web site. To a certain extent, it includes all of the aforementioned hosting categories since, along with your web sites, you can also host images and files, you can have databases and emails, upload videos, and so on. At Queen Bee Hosting you can have a gaze at shared web hosting and dedicated hosting accounts that enable you to have all of the aforesaid solutions in one single location. There may be limitations depending on the form of web hosting service that you've settled on - a free web hosting account, a paid shared hosting plan, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web hosting package may be better or worse in comparison with the routine email/file/video/image hosting packages that are created for particular web content only.
