Shared Hosting Services Definition

A shared hosting service is related to stockpiling and/or sharing certain content on a web server administered by a shared hosting company. There are different kinds of hosting services used for various goals, so let's study these. Thus, you can decide what you want, on the basis of whether you'd like to run a site, e-mail box accounts, or to share files with buddies and associates.

- File hosting: a service delivered by certain providers, which lets you share bulky files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived files, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its single designation is to share files, since it does not support web site uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either get an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to survey an inventory of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to view .html or .php web page files in your web browser. Free file hosting packages frequently include ads beside the download links, while a timer obliges you to await a particular stretch of time to observe them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you run a paid file hosting package, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download at once, and also there is no limit in regard to the download speed or the file size.

At the moment, with the help of the cPanel hosting corporations, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modish "cloud shared hosting". This is an entirely inappropriate interpretation of the literal meaning of "cloud hosting". A real cloud shared hosting platform would split the load between individual packs of web servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving various shared hosting services (electronic mail, data storage, statistics, DNS, databases, Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is just a sort of a disk storage hosting solution, not a cloud shared hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; some providers offer a hosting service for pictures exclusively. This hosting variant is appropriate if you would like to share an immense quantity of pics with buddies or acquaintances since the service is generally free. You will receive a randomly generated link for each 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 used for web sites.

- Email hosting: a solution dedicated to taking care of your e-mail aliases. Some corporations provide shared hosting services for websites, but do not offer an email hosting solution. If you would like to set up an e-mail address with your domain but do not wish to have a site, then the e-mail shared hosting service is what you want. You can create email mailbox accounts and manage them, but there will be no web service for the domain. The email hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.

- Video hosting: this solution enables you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a specific video, or you can embed the video in your website that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of utilizing this approach instead of uploading the video clip in a hosting account is that the video file creates a given amount of CPU load, so with several video files and several hundred web page visitors, you may have a problem with your shared hosting quotas. Embedding the video clip will enable you to administer as many video files as you would like without bothering about system quotas.

- Shared hosting: this is the solution that you need if you wish to possess a web site. To a certain degree, it involves all of the aforementioned hosting brands since, along with your web sites, you can also host images and files, you can run databases and email box accounts, upload video files, etc. At North Vancouver Web Hosting you can have a glance at shared shared hosting and dedicated server solutions that enable you to get all of the aforesaid solutions in a single place. There may be restrictions based on the form of shared hosting service that you've opted for - a free web hosting account, a paid shared website hosting plan, a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your shared hosting plan may be better or worse compared with the common email/file/video/image hosting packages that are planned for particular web content only.
