Hosting Plans Explanation
A hosting service is associated with hoarding and/or sharing certain content on a hosting server administered by a hosting distributor. There are different categories of hosting services utilized for various aims, so let's explore them. In this way, you can elect what you need, depending on whether you desire to have a web site, e-mail box accounts, or to share files with pals and acquaintances.
- File hosting: a service supplied by some file storage providers, which lets you share enormous files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived files, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its single function is to share files, since it does not offer website uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either receive a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to read a register of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to view .html or .php web files in your browser. Free file hosting services are often supported by showing adverts beside the download links, while a timer makes you await a specific span of time to observe them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you buy a paid file hosting plan, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download right away, and also there is no limit when it comes to the download speed or the file size.
Nowadays, with the help of the cPanel web hosting traders, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modish "cloud hosting". This is an entirely improper explanation of the actual definition of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud hosting system would allocate the load between independent groups of hosting servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending different hosting services (email, data storage, statistics, DNS, databases, website hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is merely a type of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.
- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; specific vendors provide a hosting solution for images only. This hosting type is suitable if you want to share a large quantity of pictures with buddies or acquaintances since the solution is mostly free of charge. You will get a randomly generated link for every image or album and you can then share this link. As with the file storage solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the solution cannot be used for web pages.
- Email hosting: a service committed to administering your e-mail addresses. Some corporations offer hosting services for web sites, but do not supply an email hosting solution. If you want to run an e-mail address with your domain but do not desire to keep a web site, then the email hosting solution is what you require. You can open e-mail box accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting service for the domain name. The e-mail hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.
- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a specific video, or you can embed the video clip in your web site that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of using this approach instead of uploading the video clip in a web hosting account is that the video clip brings about a certain amount of CPU load, so with a few video files and several hundred web site viewers, you may have a hard time with your hosting supplies. Embedding the video clip will allow you to have as many video files as you wish without worrying about system quotas.
- Hosting: this is the solution that you need if you wish to keep a web site. To a certain degree, it embodies all of the aforementioned hosting varieties since, along with your websites, you can also host images and files, you can have databases and mail address accounts, upload video files, and so on. At Real Tech Hosting you can have a look at shared hosting and dedicated server services that allow you to get all of the aforementioned services in a single place. There may be limitations depending on the kind of hosting service that you've chosen - a free web hosting account, a paid shared web hosting plan, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your hosting account may be better or worse compared with the customary e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are created for particular web content only.
