Web Hosting Plans Definition

A web hosting solution pertains to depositing and/or sharing given web content on a web hosting server run by a web hosting supplier. There are various forms of hosting services utilized for different ends, so let's have a look at these. Thus, you can pick what you want, depending on whether you'd like to have a web portal, mail accounts, or to share files with pals and partners.

- File hosting: a solution distributed by some providers, which enables you to share enormous files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived files, etc. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only aim is to share files, since it does not support site uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either obtain a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to read a record of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to open .html or .php web site files in your browser. Free file storage plans are often supported by showing adverts next to the download links, while a timer forces you to wait for a particular stretch of time to perceive them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you run a paid file storage plan, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, and also there is no limit as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

At the moment, with the help of the cPanel hosting suppliers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modish "cloud web hosting". This is an entirely wrong explanation of the actual denotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud web hosting environment would split the workload between individual stacks of web servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending miscellaneous web hosting services (mail, disk storage, statistics, DNS, databases, hosting CP, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is simply a variety of a storage space hosting solution, not a cloud web hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; certain corporations provide a hosting service for images only. This hosting brand is suitable if you wish to share an immense amount of pics with mates or acquaintances since the service is generally free. You will obtain a random link for every picture or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file storage service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the solution cannot be utilized for websites.

- Email hosting: a solution dedicated to handling your e-mail aliases. Some vendors offer web hosting services for web pages, but do not provide an e-mail service. If you desire to create a mail address with your domain name but do not wish to own a site, then the e-mail web hosting solution is what you require. You can set up mailbox accounts and administer them, but there will be no web solution for the domain. The email hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.

- Video hosting: this service enables you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a specific video file, or you can embed the video file in your site that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of utilizing this approach in lieu of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video clip generates a given amount of central processing unit load, so with several video clips and a few hundred site viewers, you may have a problem with your web hosting reserves. Embedding the video will allow you to keep as many video clips as you want to without hassling about system quotas.

- Web hosting: this is the solution that you need if you would like to run a website. To a certain extent, it incorporates all of the aforementioned hosting brands since, along with your sites, you can also host pics and files, you can keep databases and e-mailbox accounts, upload video files, and so on. At Seemon Tech you can observe shared web hosting and dedicated hosting packages that allow you to get all of the aforementioned solutions in a single location. There may be limitations depending on the sort of web hosting service that you've chosen - a free hosting package, a paid shared web hosting account, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Based on that, your web hosting plan may be better or worse compared to the conventional e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are made for specific web content only.
