Web Hosting Packages Explained

A web hosting solution concerns stockpiling and/or sharing specific content on a hosting server run by a web hosting provider. There are various classes of hosting services utilized for various aims, so let's review these. In this way, you can elect what you want, based on whether you desire to have a web page, email accounts, or to share files with pals and colleagues.

- File hosting: a solution provided by given file storage providers, which lets you share immense files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archives, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only objective is to share files, since it does not support web page uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either get an accidentally created 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 load .html or .php web page files in your web browser. Free file storage solutions are frequently supported by displaying advertisements by the download links, while a timer compels you to wait for a certain interval of time to perceive them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you buy a paid file storage package, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download at once, and also there is no limit in regard 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 modish "cloud web hosting". This is a thoroughly false interpretation of the literal connotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud web hosting system would divide the tasks at hand between separate groups of hosting servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending miscellaneous web hosting services (mail, storage space, statistics, DNS, databases, hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is just a sort of a disk storage hosting service, not a cloud web hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: close to file hosting; some suppliers offer a hosting solution for images only. This hosting type is suitable if you would like to share a great number of pics with mates or colleagues since the solution is mostly free of cost. You will obtain a random link for each and every image or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the service cannot be utilized for sites.

- E-mail hosting: a service devoted to tackling your e-mail box accounts. Some distributors provide web hosting services for sites, but do not provide an email hosting service. If you want to keep an email address with your domain name but do not wish to possess a site, then the e-mail web hosting service is what you need. You can set up electronic mail accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting service for the domain name. The e-mail hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service enables you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to some video clip, or you can embed the video in your site that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of availing of this approach in lieu of uploading the video clip in a hosting account is that the video file creates a certain amount of central processing unit load, so with a bunch of video clips and a few hundred visitors, you may have a problem with your web hosting supplies. Embedding the video file will allow you to manage as many videos as you want without worrying about system reserves.

- Web hosting: this is the service that you require if you wish to possess a web site. To a certain extent, it embodies all of the aforementioned hosting categories since, along with your websites, you can also host images and files, you can run databases and email addresses, upload videos, and so on. At Hermes Host you can have a peek at shared web hosting and dedicated hosting packages that allow you to have all of the aforementioned solutions in a single location. There may be limits depending on the type of web hosting service that you've picked - a free web hosting package, a paid shared website hosting package, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web hosting package may be better or worse compared with the routine e-mail/file/video/image hosting packages that are conceived for particular web content only.
