Description of Hosting Packages
A hosting solution pertains to depositing and/or sharing specific content on a web hosting server handled by a hosting company. There are different classes of hosting services used for various ends, so let's take a peek at them. Thus, you can choose what you need, depending on whether you wish to have a web page, e-mail box accounts, or to share files with friends and acquaintances.
- File hosting: a service made available by given providers, which lets you share huge files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archives, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its only designation is to share files, since it does not support web site uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either get a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to explore a list of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to load .html or .php web files in your browser. Free file hosting solutions are frequently supported by displaying adverts by the download links, while a timer compels you to wait for a particular span of time to observe them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you buy a paid file storage account, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download right away, and also there is no limitation in regard to the download speed or the file size.
These days, with the help of the cPanel hosting merchants, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more trendy "cloud hosting". This is a completely inaccurate explanation of the real denotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud hosting platform would split the workload between individual packs of web servers in a cluster, which are committed to serving different hosting services (mail, disk space, stats, DNS, databases, hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is merely a kind of a data storage hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.
- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; some suppliers offer a hosting solution for pictures solely. This hosting kind is appropriate if you want to share a huge amount of images with pals or acquaintances since the service is typically free. You will receive a random link for each and every picture or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the service cannot be utilized for sites.
- E-mail hosting: a service devoted to handling your e-mail aliases. Some suppliers offer hosting services for web pages, but do not offer an email service. If you desire to keep an email address with your domain but do not desire to keep a site, then the e-mail hosting solution is what you require. You can create e-mail box accounts and manage them, but there will be no web solution for the domain name. The e-mail hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.
- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a given video clip, or you can embed the video clip in your website that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of utilizing this approach instead of uploading the video in a hosting account is that the video file brings about a given amount of central processing unit load, so with a handful of video files and a few hundred web site visitors, you may have a hard time with your hosting quotas. Embedding the video file will allow you to administer as many video files as you would like without hassling about system supplies.
- Hosting: this is the solution that you need if you want to run a web site. To a certain extent, it involves all of the abovementioned hosting groups since, along with your web pages, you can also host pics and files, you can have databases and mail addresses, upload video files, and so on. At Maxima Host you can have a glance at shared hosting and dedicated server accounts that permit you to have all of the aforementioned services in one location. There may be limits based on the type of hosting service that you've opted for - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting plan, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your hosting package may be better or worse juxtaposed to the usual email/file/video/image hosting plans that are conceived for particular content only.
