What Indeed are Web Hosting Packages?

A web hosting solution is connected with stockpiling and/or sharing given web content on a hosting server hosted by a web hosting distributor. There are different varieties of hosting services utilized for various goals, so let's study them. In that way, you can pick what you need, based on whether you desire to establish a site, mail aliases, or to share files with comrades and partners.

- File hosting: a service provided by various companies, which lets you share large files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived files, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its only function is to share files, since it does not offer website uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either obtain an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to examine a table of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to view .html or .php web site files in your web browser. Free file storage solutions are often supported by exhibiting adverts beside the download links, while a timer compels you to await a certain period of time to view them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you own a paid file hosting package, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download at once, and also there is no restriction in regard to the download speed or the file size.

Now, with the assistance of the cPanel web hosting corporations, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more fashionable "cloud web hosting". This is a thoroughly erroneous explanation of the actual connotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud web hosting platform would distribute the load between separate hosts of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are committed to attending different web hosting services (email, web space, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting service is only a variety of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud web hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: close to file hosting; given distributors offer a hosting service for images exclusively. This hosting variant is good if you want to share an enormous amount of pics with comrades or acquaintances since the solution is mostly free. You will obtain a randomly generated link for each pic or album and you can then share this link. As with the file storage service, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the solution cannot be used for web sites.

- E-mail hosting: a solution committed to tackling your e-mail box accounts. Some providers offer web hosting services for sites, but do not provide an email hosting solution. If you would like to set up a mail address with your domain name but do not desire to keep a website, then the e-mail web hosting service is what you want. You can set up mail accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domain. The email hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to some video clip, 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 web hosting account is that the video clip brings about a certain amount of central processing unit load, so with a handful of videos and a few hundred website viewers, you may have a problem with your web hosting reserves. Embedding the video will allow you to use as many videos as you would like without bothering about system resources.

- Web hosting: this is the solution that you need if you wish to keep a web site. To a certain degree, it contains all of the aforementioned hosting categories since, along with your sites, you can also host images and files, you can have databases and e-mail aliases, upload videos, and so on. At East Texas Web Hosting you can have a look at shared web hosting and dedicated web hosting plans that allow you to get all of the aforesaid solutions in one place. There may be limits based on the type of web hosting service that you've opted for - a free hosting plan, a paid shared hosting plan, a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server. Based on that, your web hosting account may be better or worse juxtaposed to the regular email/file/video/image hosting packages that are meant for particular content only.
