A web hosting solution includes stashing and/or sharing specific content on a server administered by a web hosting distributor. There are different forms of hosting services used for different aims, so let's have a glance at them. Doing so, you can determine what you want, on the basis of whether you desire to launch a site, mail address accounts, or to share files with chums and colleagues.

- File hosting: a solution furnished by certain providers, which lets you share huge files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived documents, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its only objective is to share files, since it does not offer web site uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either receive a randomly created download link for each of them, or you will be able to view an inventory of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to view .html or .php website files in your browser. Free-of-charge file storage accounts are often supported by showing adverts next to the download links, while a timer makes you wait for a given spell of time to observe them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you have a paid file hosting account, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, and also there is no limitation as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

Nowadays, with the help of the cPanel web hosting retailers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more faddish "cloud web hosting". This is a thoroughly unsuitable interpretation of the actual connotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud web hosting environment would share the workload between different stacks of web servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending different web hosting services (electronic mail, storage space, statistics, DNS, databases, website hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is just a brand of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud web hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; some companies provide a hosting solution for images only. This hosting kind is good if you would like to share a big quantity of images with chums or associates since the service is typically free of charge. You will receive a random link for each and every picture or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file storage service, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the solution cannot be utilized for web pages.

- E-mail hosting: a service dedicated to managing your e-mail aliases. Some providers offer web hosting services for sites, but do not supply an e-mail service. If you would like to possess an e-mail address with your domain but do not want to run a web site, then the email web hosting solution is what you need. You can create mailbox accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting 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 video files. You can either share a link to some video, or you can embed the video file in your site that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of utilizing this approach instead of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video clip brings about a certain amount of central processing unit load, so with a bunch of video clips and several hundred website visitors, you may have trouble with your web hosting reserves. Embedding the video clip will allow you to own as many video files as you wish without hassling about system reserves.

- Web hosting: this is the solution that you need if you want to run a site. To a certain extent, it comprises all of the aforementioned hosting forms since, along with your sites, you can also host images and files, you can keep databases and mailbox accounts, upload video clips, and so on. At Hosting Domain you can have a look at shared web hosting and dedicated hosting solutions that permit you to get all of the aforementioned services in a single location. There may be limitations based on the sort of web hosting service that you've chosen - a free hosting account, a paid shared web hosting plan, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Based on that, your web hosting plan may be better or worse in comparison with the standard email/file/video/image hosting plans that are made for particular content only.
