Hosting Solutions Description
A hosting service is associated with saving and/or sharing particular content on a server handled by a hosting distributor. There are various forms of hosting services utilized for different purposes, so let's take a look at them. In this way, you can elect what you need, based on whether you'd like to set up a weblog, mail aliases, or to share files with pals and colleagues.

- File hosting: a solution furnished by certain vendors, which lets you share huge files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived documents, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its single designation is to share files, since it does not offer web site uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either obtain an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to examine an inventory of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to view .html or .php web files in your browser. Free-of-cost file hosting accounts are frequently supported by displaying ads by the download links, while a timer makes you wait for a given period of time to see them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you possess a paid file hosting account, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download right away, and also there is no limitation with regard to the download speed or the file size.
At the moment, with the help of the cPanel hosting firms, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more faddish "cloud hosting". This is a thoroughly incorrect interpretation of the actual connotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud hosting platform would apportion the load between autonomous stacks of hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving miscellaneous hosting services (email, storage space, stats, DNS, databases, hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is just a kind of a disk storage hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.
- Image hosting: close to file hosting; certain providers provide a hosting solution for images solely. This hosting variant is good if you want to share a big amount of images with comrades or associates since the service is usually free of charge. You will obtain a random link for each image or album and you can then share this link. As with the file storage solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be used for sites.
- E-mail hosting: a solution dedicated to administering your electronic mail accounts. Some corporations provide hosting services for web sites, but do not provide an email hosting solution. If you desire to have a mail address with your domain name but do not desire to own a website, then the e-mail hosting solution is what you require. You can set up mail address accounts and administer them, but there will be no web solution for the domain. The email hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.
- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to some video clip, or you can embed the video in your site that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of availing of this approach in lieu of uploading the video clip in a web hosting account is that the video clip produces a given amount of central processing unit load, so with a couple of video clips and several hundred site viewers, you may have a problem with your hosting supplies. Embedding the video clip will permit you to run as many videos as you wish without worrying about system reserves.
- Hosting: this is the service that you require if you wish to keep a web site. To a certain degree, it comprises all of the aforementioned hosting groups since, along with your sites, you can also host images and files, you can create databases and e-mail box accounts, upload video files, and so on. At Javis Intl Web Hosting you can view shared hosting and dedicated package accounts that allow you to have all of the abovementioned services in a single place. There may be restrictions based on the kind of hosting service that you've selected - a free hosting account, a paid shared web hosting package, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your hosting account may be better or worse compared to the common email/file/video/image hosting plans that are meant for particular web content only.
