A hosting service entails hoarding and/or sharing specific content on a server administered by a hosting vendor. There are different sorts of hosting services utilized for different goals, so let's take a glimpse at them. In this way, you can conclude what you want, depending on whether you'd like to launch a weblog, e-mail aliases, or to share files with buddies and colleagues.

- File hosting: a solution supplied by particular file storage providers, which allows you to share large files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived files, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole purpose is to share files, since it does not offer web site uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either receive an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to view a roll of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to view .html or .php web files in your browser. Free file hosting solutions are frequently supported by exhibiting advertisements next to the download links, while a timer makes you await a particular stretch of time to see them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you own a paid file storage package, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download straight away, and also there is no limitation in regard to the download speed or the file size.

At the moment, with the assistance of the cPanel web hosting wholesalers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more faddish "cloud hosting". This is a completely wrong explanation of the literal denotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud hosting system would allocate the load between separate hosts of hosting servers in a cluster, which are committed to attending various hosting services (email, data storage, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is only a kind of a disk space hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; certain corporations offer a hosting service for images solely. This hosting type is appropriate if you would like to share an enormous number of pictures with friends or associates since the solution is typically free. You will obtain a randomly generated link for each picture or album and you can then share this link. As with the file storage service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be used for sites.

- E-mail hosting: a service dedicated to taking care of your mail address accounts. Some vendors provide hosting services for web sites, but do not offer an e-mail solution. If you desire to create an email address with your domain name but do not wish to run a website, then the e-mail hosting service is what you need. You can set up email box accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting service for the domain name. The email hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.

- Video hosting: this solution permits you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a given video file, or you can embed the video file in your web site that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of utilizing this approach in lieu of uploading the video in a hosting account is that the video brings about a specific amount of central processing unit load, so with several video clips and a few hundred web site visitors, you may have trouble with your hosting reserves. Embedding the video will enable you to operate as many videos as you desire without hassling about system resources.

- Hosting: this is the service that you require if you would like to possess a website. To a certain extent, it consists of all of the aforesaid hosting varieties since, along with your websites, you can also host pictures and files, you can run databases and mail address accounts, upload video files, and so on. At Solution Plus de Proyco Corporacion you can have a glimpse at shared hosting and dedicated server packages that allow you to get all of the aforementioned solutions in one single location. There may be restrictions based on the type of hosting service that you've opted for - a free web hosting package, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your hosting package may be better or worse juxtaposed to the customary e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are designed for specific content only.
