What Precisely are Web Hosting Packages?

A web hosting service appertains to storing and/or sharing particular content on a web server managed by a web hosting distributor. There are different classes of hosting services utilized for various purposes, so let's explore these. Thus, you can elect what you need, based on whether you wish to create a web portal, email accounts, or to share files with friends and associates.

- File hosting: a service supplied by various providers, which allows you to share big files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived documents, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its single function is to share files, since it does not offer web page uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either receive a randomly generated 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 see .html or .php website files in your browser. Free-of-charge file storage services are frequently supported by displaying adverts by the download links, while a timer makes you wait for a specific span of time to view them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you run a paid file hosting account, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download at once, and also there is no limitation in regard to the download speed or the file size.

At present, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting vendors, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more voguish "cloud web hosting". This is a thoroughly wrong explanation of the literal denotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud web hosting platform would split the workload between individual hosts of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending various web hosting services (electronic mail, data storage, stats, DNS, databases, website hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting service is just a sort of a disk storage hosting solution, not a cloud web hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; specific providers provide a hosting service for pictures exclusively. This hosting variant is appropriate if you wish to share a big quantity of pictures with comrades or partners since the service is commonly free. You will get a random link for every image or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the solution cannot be used for sites.

- E-mail hosting: a solution dedicated to handling your electronic mail accounts. Some distributors provide web hosting services for websites, but do not supply an e-mail hosting solution. If you want to run an e-mail address with your domain but do not desire to run a site, then the email web hosting service is what you require. You can create mail address accounts and manage them, but there will be no web solution for the domain name. The email hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.

- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a given video file, or you can embed the video in your site that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of availing of this approach instead of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video brings about a certain amount of CPU load, so with a couple of video clips and several hundred site viewers, you may have a hard time with your web hosting supplies. Embedding the video clip will enable you to operate as many videos as you would like without worrying about system resources.

- Web hosting: this is the solution that you require if you desire to run a web site. To a certain degree, it comprises all of the aforesaid hosting brands since, along with your websites, you can also host pics and files, you can set up databases and email addresses, upload videos, etc. At TM Web Hosting you can see shared web hosting and dedicated hosting accounts that enable you to get all of the aforesaid services in a single location. There may be limits depending on the type of web hosting service that you've chosen - a free hosting package, a paid shared website hosting plan, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Based on that, your web hosting package may be better or worse compared to the normal email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are designed for specific web content only.
