Hosting Services Description
A hosting service is associated with hoarding and/or sharing specific content on a web hosting server hosted by a hosting distributor. There are different forms of hosting services utilized for different ends, so let's examine these. In this way, you can decide what you need, based on whether you wish to set up a web page, email box accounts, or to share files with chums and partners.
- File hosting: a solution made available by given providers, which lets you share big files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived documents, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole objective is to share files, since it does not support web site uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either receive an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to see a register of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to see .html or .php web page files in your browser. Free-of-cost file hosting packages are frequently supported by displaying ads beside the download links, while a timer forces you to await a particular period of time to observe them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you purchase a paid file hosting account, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, and also there is no limitation when it comes to the download speed or the file size.
Nowadays, with the assistance of the cPanel web hosting merchants, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more fashionable "cloud hosting". This is an entirely improper interpretation of the real connotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud hosting system would split the load between separate packs of hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending various hosting services (email, disk storage, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is simply a kind of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.
- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; some distributors provide a hosting service for images only. This hosting variant is good if you want to share a great number of images with chums or partners since the service is typically free. You will receive a random link for each and every image or album and you can subsequently 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 devoted to taking care of your email accounts. Some vendors provide hosting services for websites, but do not supply an email hosting service. If you want to create a mail address with your domain but do not want to have a web site, then the email hosting solution is what you want. You can open e-mail box accounts and manage them, but there will be no web service for the domain. The e-mail hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.
- Video hosting: this service allows you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a certain video clip, or you can embed the video in your web page that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of using this approach in lieu of uploading the video in a web hosting account is that the video produces a given amount of central processing unit load, so with a bunch of videos and several hundred web page visitors, you may have a problem with your hosting reserves. Embedding the video clip will permit you to administer as many video files as you wish without bothering about system supplies.
- Hosting: this is the service that you require if you would like to run a web site. To some degree, it embodies all of the abovementioned hosting groups since, along with your sites, you can also host images and files, you can set up databases and mailbox accounts, upload videos, and so on. At JBC Group you can take a gaze at shared hosting and dedicated server solutions that permit you to get all of the aforementioned solutions in one single location. There may be limitations based on the type of hosting service that you've opted for - a free web hosting plan, a paid shared web hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your hosting plan may be better or worse juxtaposed to the regular email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are intended for particular content only.
