A hosting solution is associated with keeping and/or sharing specific web content on a server managed by a hosting distributor. There are different forms of hosting services used for different aims, so let's take a glance at these. In that way, you can pick what you need, based on whether you'd like to have a site, email mailbox accounts, or to share files with mates and colleagues.

- File hosting: a solution provided by certain providers, which lets you share immense files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived documents, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only goal is to share files, since it does not offer website uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either obtain a randomly created download link for each of them, or you will be able to explore a register of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to view .html or .php web files in your web browser. Free-of-cost file storage plans are often supported by displaying adverts next to the download links, while a timer forces you to await a particular period of time to view them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you buy a paid file hosting account, 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.

At the moment, with the help of the cPanel web hosting suppliers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more faddish "cloud hosting". This is an entirely wrong explanation of the real connotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud hosting system would split the load between individual bunches of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending miscellaneous hosting services (mail, storage space, stats, DNS, databases, web hosting CP, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is merely a kind of a data storage hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; certain vendors provide a hosting solution for images only. This hosting type is good if you would like to share a vast number of images with chums or acquaintances since the service is usually free of cost. You will receive a randomly generated link for each and every pic or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the solution cannot be utilized for web pages.

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

- Video hosting: this solution permits you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a certain video clip, or you can embed the video file in your web site that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of utilizing this method instead of uploading the video in a hosting account is that the video file produces a given amount of central processing unit load, so with several video files and a few hundred website viewers, you may have trouble with your hosting supplies. Embedding the video file will permit you to have as many video clips as you want without bothering about system quotas.

- Hosting: this is the service that you need if you wish to keep a site. To a certain extent, it involves all of the aforementioned hosting categories since, along with your web pages, you can also host images and files, you can keep databases and electronic mail accounts, upload video files, and so on. At MurnHost you can take a look at shared hosting and dedicated server packages that permit you to get all of the abovementioned services in one single location. There may be restrictions depending on the kind of hosting service that you've opted for - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting plan, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your hosting account may be better or worse juxtaposed to the normal e-mail/file/video/image hosting packages that are conceived for particular web content only.
