What Exactly are Web Hosting Plans?

A web hosting solution means stockpiling and/or sharing particular content on a server handled by a web hosting company. There are different classes of hosting services used for various aims, so let's study them. Thus, you can choose what you want, based on whether you wish to build a web page, email address accounts, or to share files with chums and partners.

- File hosting: a solution furnished by various file storage providers, which permits you to share large files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archives, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its single aim is to share files, since it does not support website uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either receive an accidentally 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 be unable to see .html or .php web site files in your web browser. Free-of-charge file hosting plans are often supported by showing advertisements beside the download links, while a timer compels you to await a specific span of time to perceive them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you have 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 limitation when it comes to the download speed or the file size.

Now, with the help of the cPanel web hosting corporations, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more trendy "cloud web hosting". This is a completely fallacious explanation of the real denotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud web hosting platform would assign the workload between separate packs of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are committed to serving various web hosting services (email, data storage, stats, DNS, databases, web hosting CP, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is merely a brand of a data storage hosting solution, not a cloud web hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: close to file hosting; given companies provide a hosting solution for pictures exclusively. This hosting type is appropriate if you would like to share an immense amount of pics with pals or colleagues since the solution is generally free. You will obtain a random link for each and every image or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file storage service, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the service cannot be used for websites.

- Email hosting: a solution dedicated to handling your mailbox accounts. Some vendors provide web hosting services for web sites, but do not provide an e-mail solution. If you would like to launch an e-mail address with your domain name but do not wish to keep a website, then the e-mail web hosting service is what you need. You can set up e-mailbox accounts and administer them, but there will be no web solution for the domain. The email hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.

- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to some video clip, or you can embed the video in your website that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of utilizing this method instead of uploading the video clip in a hosting account is that the video file generates a specific amount of CPU load, so with a few videos and a few hundred visitors, you may have a hard time with your web hosting resources. Embedding the video clip will permit you to use as many video clips as you would like without hassling about system quotas.

- Web hosting: this is the solution that you need if you want to possess a site. To some degree, it involves all of the abovementioned hosting variants since, along with your sites, you can also host images and files, you can create databases and emails, upload video clips, etc. At ARServices Hosting you can take a glance at shared web hosting and dedicated web hosting plans that enable you to get all of the abovementioned solutions in one single place. There may be limits based on the form of web hosting service that you've settled on - a free web hosting plan, a paid shared web hosting plan, a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web hosting account may be better or worse juxtaposed to the conventional e-mail/file/video/image hosting packages that are purposed for specific content only.
