A hosting service is associated with saving and/or sharing particular web content on a web server handled by a website hosting distributor. There are various sorts of hosting services utilized for different ends, so let's study them. Thus, you can conclude what you want, depending on whether you'd like to build a web page, mail addresses, or to share files with chums and partners.

- File hosting: a service offered by particular web hosts, which allows you to share big files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived files, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole purpose is to share files, since it does not support site uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either get a randomly 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 be unable to open .html or .php website files in your browser. Free file hosting services are often supported by exhibiting ads next to the download links, while a timer obliges you to wait for a given spell of time to see them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you buy a paid file storage account, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download at once, and also there is no restriction when it comes to the download speed or the file size.

Nowadays, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting firms, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modish "cloud hosting". This is an entirely twisted explanation of the actual meaning of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting platform would allot the tasks at hand between individual packs of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending different web site hosting services (email, disk storage, stats, DNS, databases, web space hosting CP, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is just a type of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; given corporations provide a hosting service for images exclusively. This hosting variant is suitable if you want to share a vast amount of images with chums or acquaintances since the service is usually free. You will get a random link for each image or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file storage solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be utilized for sites.

- E-mail hosting: a service committed to administering your mail addresses. Some vendors offer site hosting solutions for web sites, but do not supply an e-mail service. If you would like to get an email address with your domain name but do not desire to run a web site, then the e-mail hosting service is what you require. You can create mail address accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domains. The e-mail hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this solution enables 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 web page that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of availing of this method instead of uploading the video in a hosting account is that the video produces a given amount of central processing unit load, so with a handful of video clips and several hundred site viewers, you may have difficulty with your site hosting resources. Embedding the video clip will permit you to administer as many videos as you wish without bothering about system resources.

- Web site hosting: this is the service that you need if you would like to possess a website. To some degree, it contains all of the aforementioned hosting kinds since, along with your web sites, you can also host pics and files, you can have databases and emails, upload video clips, etc. At Fast PHP Hosting, for instance, you can examine web hosting and dedicated web server hosting accounts that allow you to have all of the aforesaid solutions in one place. There may be restrictions depending on the sort of hosting solution that you've selected - a free hosting plan, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your web space hosting plan may be better or worse compared with the usual email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are conceived for particular web content only.
