What are Web Hosting Packages?

A web hosting solution refers to stashing and/or sharing given web content on a web server run by a web hosting company. There are various forms of hosting services utilized for different aims, so let's study these. In this way, you can elect what you want, depending on whether you wish to run a web portal, e-mail aliases, or to share files with pals and partners.

- File hosting: a service furnished by certain file storage providers, which allows you to share immense files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived documents, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only purpose is to share files, since it does not support 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 see a roster of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to see .html or .php web page files in your browser. Free file storage solutions frequently include adverts beside the download links, while a timer makes you await a certain amount of time to see them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you have a paid file storage plan, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download immediately, and also there is no restriction as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

Now, with the help of the cPanel hosting retailers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more fashionable "cloud web hosting". This is a completely distorted interpretation of the real meaning of "cloud hosting". A real cloud web hosting system would allocate the load between different groups of hosting servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending different web hosting services (mail, web space, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting CP, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is merely a sort of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud web hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; some vendors provide a hosting solution for images solely. This hosting variant is appropriate if you would like to share a big number of images with buddies or associates since the solution is mostly free of charge. You will get a randomly generated link for each and every 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 solution cannot be used for sites.

- Email hosting: a service dedicated to taking care of your mailbox accounts. Some firms offer web hosting services for web sites, but do not provide an e-mail solution. If you would like to own an email address with your domain name but do not wish to keep a website, then the e-mail web hosting service is what you require. You can create mail accounts and manage them, but there will be no web service for the domain. The e-mail hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service allows you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a certain video, or you can embed the video clip in your website that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of using this method instead of uploading the video file in a hosting account is that the video clip brings about a specific amount of CPU load, so with a couple of video files and several hundred site viewers, you may have trouble with your web hosting quotas. Embedding the video file will enable you to use as many video files as you desire without worrying about system quotas.

- Web hosting: this is the solution that you require if you wish to run a site. To a certain degree, it encompasses all of the aforementioned hosting groups since, along with your sites, you can also host images and files, you can keep databases and mail addresses, upload videos, etc. At ERPNODE you can take a glimpse at shared web hosting and dedicated web hosting accounts that allow you to get all of the abovementioned services in a single place. There may be limits depending on the type of web hosting service that you've chosen - a free web hosting package, a paid shared hosting plan, a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web hosting plan may be better or worse compared to the conventional email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are designed for particular web content only.
