What Does Shared Hosting Plans Denote?

A shared hosting service entails depositing and/or sharing particular content on a web server run by a shared hosting provider. There are different classes of hosting services used for different goals, so let's have a glance at these. Doing so, you can decide what you need, on the basis of whether you desire to have a web page, mail addresses, or to share files with comrades and colleagues.

- File hosting: a solution supplied by various firms, 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 single designation is to share files, since it does not offer web site uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either receive an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to see a list 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 hosting plans frequently involve adverts next to the download links, while a timer obliges you to wait for a certain stretch of time to observe them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you run a paid file hosting package, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download right away, and also there is no limitation as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

Nowadays, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting traders, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modern "cloud shared hosting". This is a totally distorted interpretation of the real connotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud shared hosting platform would assign the tasks at hand between individual sets of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are devoted to serving different shared hosting services (mail, data storage, stats, DNS, databases, website hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is simply a sort of a disk storage hosting solution, not a cloud shared hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; specific corporations offer a hosting solution for pictures exclusively. This hosting type is suitable if you want to share an immense amount of images with friends or acquaintances since the service is mostly free. You will get a random link for each picture or album and you can then share this link. As with the file storage service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the solution cannot be used for web sites.

- Email hosting: a service devoted to managing your mail addresses. Some suppliers offer shared hosting services for web sites, but do not supply an e-mail hosting solution. If you wish to launch an e-mail address with your domain but do not want to possess a site, then the e-mail shared hosting solution is what you want. You can create email accounts and manage them, but there will be no web service for the domain. The e-mail hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this solution permits you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a specific video clip, or you can embed the video clip in your web site that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of availing of this approach instead of uploading the video clip in a web hosting account is that the video file produces a given amount of CPU load, so with a few videos and a few hundred web page viewers, you may have difficulty with your shared hosting supplies. Embedding the video clip will permit you to use as many video files as you desire without worrying about system resources.

- Shared hosting: this is the service that you require if you desire to possess a website. To a certain degree, it includes all of the aforementioned hosting groups since, along with your sites, you can also host pictures and files, you can run databases and mails, upload videos, etc. At HMAHost you can take a gaze at shared shared hosting and dedicated server plans that allow you to get all of the abovementioned services in one location. There may be limits depending on the kind of shared hosting service that you've picked - a free web hosting plan, a paid shared web hosting package, a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your shared hosting plan may be better or worse in comparison with the normal e-mail/file/video/image hosting accounts that are meant for particular content only.
