A hosting service involves hoarding and/or sharing given web content on a web hosting server run by a web hosting supplier. There are various sorts of hosting services used for various goals, so let's explore them. Doing so, you can choose what you want, based on whether you'd like to have a web site, electronic mail accounts, or to share files with chums and associates.

- File hosting: a service offered by various hosts, which lets you share big files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archives, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole objective is to share files, since it does not support website uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either obtain an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to read a record of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to view .html or .php web page files in your web browser. Free file storage plans are often supported by showing ads next to the download links, while a timer makes you wait for a given period of time to view them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you possess a paid file hosting package, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, and also there is no limitation with regard to the download speed or the file size.

Now, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting retailers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more voguish "cloud hosting". This is an entirely erroneous interpretation of the literal definition of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting environment would apportion the load between autonomous sets of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving various web site hosting services (email, disk space, stats, DNS, databases, web space hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is just a kind of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; specific suppliers provide a hosting service for pictures only. This hosting kind is suitable if you would like to share an enormous quantity of pictures with pals or colleagues since the service is usually free of charge. You will get a random link for each image or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the service cannot be utilized for web pages.

- E-mail hosting: a service committed to managing your email box accounts. Some vendors provide web space hosting solutions for web sites, but do not supply an e-mail hosting service. If you desire to set up an e-mail address with your domain name but do not want to run a website, then the e-mail hosting service is what you require. You can set up mail accounts and administer them, but there will be no web service for the domains. The e-mail hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP servers.

- Video hosting: this solution enables you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a specific video clip, or you can embed the video file in your site that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of availing of this method instead of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video file generates a specific amount of CPU load, so with a couple of videos and a few hundred web page viewers, you may have a problem with your web page hosting resources. Embedding the video will permit you to utilize as many videos as you want to without worrying about system quotas.

- Website hosting: this is the service that you require if you wish to run a website. To a certain degree, it comprises all of the aforesaid hosting forms since, along with your web pages, you can also host pics and files, you can keep databases and mailbox accounts, upload video files, and so on. At NTC Hosting, for instance, you can see web hosting and dedicated web server hosting solutions that enable you to have all of the aforementioned services in one place. There may be restrictions depending on the form of hosting service that you've opted for - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting plan, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web site hosting account may be better or worse compared to the conventional email/file/video/image hosting packages that are intended for particular web content only.
