- File hosting: a solution made available by some file storage providers, which allows you to share big files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived files, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole objective is to share files, since it does not support website uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either receive an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to examine an index of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to open .html or .php web page files in your browser. Free file storage solutions often involve adverts next to the download links, while a timer forces you to await a particular amount of time to perceive them. A given file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you purchase a paid file hosting plan, there are no limitations 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.
Nowadays, with the help of the cPanel web hosting distributors, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more fashionable "cloud hosting". This is a totally twisted interpretation of the real definition of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud hosting platform would split the load between different stacks of web servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving miscellaneous hosting services (mail, disk space, stats, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is simply a brand of a disk storage hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.
- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; some providers offer a hosting solution for pictures only. This hosting brand is good if you desire to share an immense number of pictures with chums or colleagues since the solution is typically free. You will obtain a randomly generated link for every pic or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file storage solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be utilized for web pages.
- E-mail hosting: a service committed to handling your emails. Some providers provide hosting services for web pages, but do not supply an email hosting solution. If you wish to open an email address with your domain name but do not wish to run a site, then the email hosting service is what you want. You can set up e-mail accounts and administer them, but there will be no web service for the domain. The email hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.
- Video hosting: this solution enables you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a given video clip, or you can embed the video clip in your site that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of utilizing this approach instead of uploading the video clip in a hosting account is that the video brings about a given amount of CPU load, so with a handful of video clips and a few hundred web page viewers, you may have a hard time with your hosting quotas. Embedding the video file will enable you to administer as many videos as you want to without hassling about system quotas.
- Hosting: this is the solution that you need if you want to keep a website. To a certain degree, it consists of all of the aforesaid hosting sorts since, along with your websites, you can also host images and files, you can keep databases and mail address accounts, upload video clips, etc. At Mo Money' you can examine shared hosting and dedicated package services that permit you to have all of the abovementioned services in a single location. There may be limitations depending on the kind of hosting service that you've picked - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting package, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your hosting account may be better or worse juxtaposed to the regular email/file/video/image hosting packages that are conceived for specific web content only.
