How Website Hosting Packages Work

A website hosting solution entails saving and/or sharing specific content on a web server managed by a website hosting provider. There are different forms of hosting services used for various purposes, so let's take a peek at these. Thus, you can determine what you want, on the basis of whether you desire to establish a site, email address accounts, or to share files with mates and colleagues.

- File hosting: a solution furnished by certain web hosts, which allows you to share immense files. These could be disk images, films, 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 web page uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either get an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to read a table of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to load .html or .php web page files in your browser. Free-of-charge file hosting packages frequently include ads by the download links, while a timer forces you to await a particular interval of time to view them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you buy a paid file hosting plan, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, and also there is no limit with regard to the download speed or the file size.

At present, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting suppliers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more stylish "cloud website hosting". This is a completely wrong explanation of the literal definition of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting system would split the load between separate groups of servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending miscellaneous website hosting services (electronic mail, disk space, statistics, DNS, databases, website hosting CP, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is merely a brand of a disk storage hosting solution, not a cloud website hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; some providers provide a hosting service for images solely. This hosting variant is suitable if you would like to share an immense amount of images with comrades or colleagues since the service is commonly free. You will obtain a randomly generated link for each and every image or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the solution cannot be used for sites.

- Email hosting: a service devoted to tackling your mail address accounts. Some companies offer website hosting services for sites, but do not supply an email solution. If you want to keep an email address with your domain name but do not want to possess a website, then the email website hosting service is what you want. You can open mailbox accounts and manage 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 service enables you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a specific video file, or you can embed the video clip in your web page that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of availing of this approach instead of uploading the video in a web hosting account is that the video produces a certain amount of CPU load, so with a few video files and a few hundred web site visitors, you may have trouble with your website hosting supplies. Embedding the video clip will enable you to administer as many video files as you wish without hassling about system resources.

- Website hosting: this is the solution that you require if you wish to have a site. To some degree, it embodies all of the aforesaid hosting varieties since, along with your websites, you can also host pictures and files, you can set up databases and emails, upload video clips, etc. At RNR Media Hosting you can have a peek at shared website hosting and dedicated web hosting plans that enable you to have all of the abovementioned solutions in one location. There may be restrictions based on the type of website hosting service that you've chosen - a free web hosting plan, a paid shared web hosting plan, a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your website hosting package may be better or worse compared to the regular email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are tailored for particular content only.
