A web hosting solution is related to stashing and/or sharing particular web content on a server handled by a web hosting vendor. There are different classes of hosting services used for different aims, so let's take a glimpse at them. Thus, you can elect what you want, depending on whether you'd like to launch a website, mailbox accounts, or to share files with chums and partners.

- File hosting: a service delivered by various companies, which enables you to share enormous files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived files, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its single objective is to share files, since it does not offer web site uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either obtain an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to read a register of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to load .html or .php web site files in your web browser. Free file hosting packages often include adverts by the download links, while a timer obliges you to await a particular spell of time to view them. A given file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you purchase a paid file hosting package, there are no limits 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.

Nowadays, with the assistance of the cPanel web hosting traders, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more fashionable "cloud web hosting". This is a completely unsuitable interpretation of the real connotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud web hosting environment would allocate the workload between autonomous bunches of hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending miscellaneous web hosting services (electronic mail, storage space, stats, DNS, databases, website hosting CP, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is just a kind of a data storage hosting service, not a cloud web hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: close to file hosting; specific suppliers offer a hosting solution for pictures exclusively. This hosting kind is suitable if you desire to share a vast number of images with chums or acquaintances since the solution is generally free of cost. You will receive 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 solution cannot be utilized for web sites.

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

- Video hosting: this solution permits you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to some video clip, or you can embed the video in your web page that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of availing of this method in lieu of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video clip produces a certain amount of CPU load, so with a handful of video files and several hundred web site visitors, you may have a hard time with your web hosting supplies. Embedding the video clip will enable you to have as many video clips as you want without hassling about system quotas.

- Web hosting: this is the service that you need if you desire to run a website. To some extent, it contains all of the aforesaid hosting categories since, along with your web pages, you can also host pics and files, you can keep databases and mails, upload video clips, and so on. At Gold ISP you can take a gaze at shared web hosting and dedicated hosting packages that allow you to have all of the aforesaid solutions in a single place. There may be limits based on the type of web hosting service that you've opted for - a free web hosting account, a paid shared website hosting package, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web hosting package may be better or worse in comparison with the normal e-mail/file/video/image hosting packages that are devised for specific web content only.
