- File hosting: a service supplied by some web hosts, which enables you to share enormous files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archives, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its single function is to share files, since it does not support web page uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either get a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to explore 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-of-charge file hosting services are frequently supported by displaying adverts next to the download links, while a timer obliges you to wait for a given spell of time to see them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you buy a paid file storage account, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download immediately, and also there is no restriction with regard to the download speed or the file size.
These days, with the help of the cPanel hosting traders, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modish "cloud web hosting". This is a totally incorrect interpretation of the literal connotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud web hosting platform would assign the load between individual hosts of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending different web hosting services (electronic mail, storage space, stats, DNS, databases, website hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting service is only a type of a data storage hosting service, not a cloud web hosting one. It's not even close.
- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; specific providers provide a hosting solution for pictures only. This hosting kind is suitable if you want to share a great number of pictures with chums or partners since the service is generally free of charge. You will get a randomly generated link for each and every pic 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 utilized for websites.
- E-mail hosting: a solution committed to administering your email addresses. Some providers offer web hosting services for sites, but do not supply an email solution. If you wish to manage an e-mail address with your domain name but do not want to have a website, then the email web hosting solution is what you need. You can set up e-mail box accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting 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 files. You can either share a link to a specific video clip, or you can embed the video file in your website that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of utilizing this method in lieu of uploading the video clip in a hosting account is that the video creates a particular amount of central processing unit load, so with a few video clips and a few hundred website viewers, you may have difficulty with your web hosting resources. Embedding the video file will allow you to keep as many video files as you desire without hassling about system supplies.
- Web hosting: this is the service that you require if you wish to keep a site. To some extent, it consists of all of the abovementioned hosting categories since, along with your sites, you can also host pics and files, you can set up databases and e-mail accounts, upload videos, and so on. At Mir Sharif Hosting you can examine shared web hosting and dedicated hosting solutions that permit you to have all of the aforementioned services in a single place. There may be limits depending on the type of web hosting service that you've selected - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Based on that, your web hosting plan may be better or worse compared with the standard e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are conceived for specific web content only.
