Shared Hosting Solutions Description
A shared hosting solution means saving and/or sharing specific content on a web server hosted by a shared hosting supplier. There are different groups of hosting services used for various ends, so let's take a gaze at these. In this way, you can determine what you need, based on whether you wish to create a web page, e-mailbox accounts, or to share files with buddies and acquaintances.
- File hosting: a service offered by given companies, which allows you to share big 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 aim is to share files, since it does not support website uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either receive a randomly created download link for each of them, or you will be able to view a roster of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to open .html or .php web site files in your browser. Free-of-cost file storage services frequently involve ads next to the download links, while a timer makes you wait for a certain stretch of time to see them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you buy a paid file hosting plan, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download right away, and also there is no restriction as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.
At present, with the help of the cPanel web hosting traders, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more fashionable "cloud shared hosting". This is a thoroughly distorted interpretation of the real denotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud shared hosting system would allocate the workload between independent groups of servers in a cluster, which are committed to serving different shared hosting services (mail, storage space, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is only a type of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud shared hosting one. It's not even close.
- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; specific distributors offer a hosting service for pictures exclusively. This hosting variant is suitable if you desire to share a big amount of images with chums or associates since the solution is commonly free of cost. You will obtain a random 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 sites.
- Email hosting: a service devoted to administering your mail aliases. Some suppliers provide shared hosting services for sites, but do not offer an e-mail solution. If you wish to possess an email address with your domain name but do not wish to possess a site, then the e-mail shared hosting service is what you want. You can open mailbox accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting service for the domain. The e-mail hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.
- Video hosting: this solution permits you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a specific video, or you can embed the video clip in your website that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of using this method in lieu of uploading the video in a hosting account is that the video creates a given amount of central processing unit load, so with several video files and a few hundred visitors, you may have a problem with your shared hosting quotas. Embedding the video will allow you to keep as many video files as you desire without hassling about system quotas.
- Shared hosting: this is the solution that you need if you desire to possess a website. To some degree, it comprises all of the abovementioned hosting categories since, along with your web pages, you can also host pictures and files, you can create databases and e-mail box accounts, upload videos, and so on. At NetService Hosting you can view shared shared hosting and dedicated server services that allow you to get all of the abovementioned services in one location. There may be restrictions depending on the kind of shared hosting service that you've chosen - a free hosting plan, a paid shared hosting plan, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Based on that, your shared hosting plan may be better or worse compared to the typical email/file/video/image hosting packages that are created for particular web content only.
