Web Hosting Solutions Description
A web hosting service applies to saving and/or sharing specific content on a web hosting server run by a web hosting vendor. There are various categories of hosting services used for different goals, so let's examine them. Doing so, you can decide what you need, on the basis of whether you'd like to create a web portal, email addresses, or to share files with friends and associates.
- File hosting: a solution provided by given web hosts, which permits you to share large files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived files, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole purpose is to share files, since it does not support web page uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either obtain an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to read a table of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to open .html or .php web files in your browser. Free file storage solutions are frequently supported by showing advertisements beside the download links, while a timer compels you to await a specific interval of time to observe them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you own a paid file hosting account, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download straight away, and also there is no limit when it comes to the download speed or the file size.
At present, with the assistance of the cPanel web hosting suppliers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more trendy "cloud web hosting". This is a completely inapt explanation of the real denotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud web hosting platform would assign the workload between individual hosts of web servers in a cluster, which are committed to attending miscellaneous web hosting services (electronic mail, disk storage, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is simply a sort of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud web hosting one. It's not even near.
- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; some companies offer a hosting service for pictures solely. This hosting variant is appropriate if you want to share a big amount of pictures with chums or partners since the service is mostly free. You will receive a random link for every pic or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file storage service, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the service cannot be utilized for websites.
- Email hosting: a service dedicated to taking care of your electronic mail accounts. Some distributors offer web hosting services for web sites, but do not offer an e-mail hosting service. If you want to keep an e-mail address with your domain but do not want to run a website, then the email web hosting solution is what you want. You can create mail accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting service for the domain name. The email hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.
- Video hosting: this service allows you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a particular video, or you can embed the video file in your web page that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of using this approach instead of uploading the video file in a hosting account is that the video brings about a given amount of central processing unit load, so with a couple of videos and a few hundred website visitors, you may have a hard time with your web hosting resources. Embedding the video file will enable you to possess as many videos as you would like without bothering about system quotas.
- Web hosting: this is the solution that you require if you would like to possess a site. To some extent, it consists of all of the abovementioned hosting sorts since, along with your sites, you can also host pictures and files, you can have databases and mail addresses, upload videos, etc. At RCS-Tek Cloud Hosting you can take a gaze at shared web hosting and dedicated hosting packages that permit you to have all of the aforementioned services in a single location. There may be limitations depending on the form of web hosting service that you've settled on - a free hosting plan, a paid shared web hosting account, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web hosting plan may be better or worse in comparison with the typical e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are tailored for specific web content only.
