A hosting solution pertains to storing and/or sharing specific web content on a web hosting server administered by a hosting distributor. There are different categories of hosting services used for different aims, so let's take a peek at them. In that way, you can decide what you want, on the basis of whether you desire to build a web portal, mail address accounts, or to share files with mates and partners.

- File hosting: a service offered by certain hosts, which allows you to share large files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived files, etc. This solution is also known as file storage, and its single goal is to share files, since it does not support web page uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either receive an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to see a table of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to see .html or .php web site files in your browser. Free-of-cost file hosting solutions are frequently supported by displaying advertisements by the download links, while a timer makes you wait for a certain interval of time to observe them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you own a paid file hosting plan, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download straight away, and also there is no limitation with regard to the download speed or the file size.

These days, with the help of the cPanel hosting suppliers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modern "cloud hosting". This is an entirely untrue explanation of the literal denotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud hosting system would allot the workload between autonomous groups of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending different hosting services (electronic mail, disk space, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is simply a kind of a disk space hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; certain firms offer a hosting solution for pictures exclusively. This hosting kind is appropriate if you would like to share a big quantity of pics with buddies or partners since the solution is commonly free. You will get a randomly generated link for every image or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be used for web sites.

- E-mail hosting: a solution dedicated to taking care of your mail addresses. Some distributors offer hosting services for sites, but do not offer an e-mail service. If you would like to set up an e-mail address with your domain but do not desire to own a site, then the e-mail hosting service is what you want. You can open e-mail accounts and manage them, but there will be no web solution for the domain. The e-mail hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a given video file, or you can embed the video clip in your site that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of using this approach in lieu of uploading the video clip in a hosting account is that the video file generates a certain amount of central processing unit load, so with a couple of video clips and a few hundred viewers, you may have a hard time with your hosting quotas. Embedding the video will enable you to have as many video files as you would like without hassling about system resources.

- Hosting: this is the solution that you require if you would like to keep a site. To some degree, it encompasses all of the aforesaid hosting forms since, along with your websites, you can also host pictures and files, you can create databases and email addresses, upload videos, and so on. At Consultingforge Hosting Ltd. you can have a look at shared hosting and dedicated server services that allow you to have all of the aforesaid services in one single place. There may be limitations based on the kind of hosting service that you've opted for - a free hosting plan, a paid shared website hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your hosting package may be better or worse compared to the common e-mail/file/video/image hosting accounts that are planned for particular content only.
