What are Shared Hosting Packages?
A shared hosting service is associated with keeping and/or sharing given content on a web hosting server administered by a shared hosting provider. There are different kinds of hosting services utilized for different goals, so let's review them. Thus, you can pick what you need, based on whether you desire to set up a web page, email address accounts, or to share files with friends and associates.
- File hosting: a solution made available by particular 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 only objective is to share files, since it does not offer site uploading. As soon as 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 be unable to see .html or .php web files in your browser. Free file hosting solutions frequently include adverts next to the download links, while a timer compels you to wait for a given span of time to perceive them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you purchase a paid file hosting account, there are no restrictions 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 assistance of the cPanel hosting distributors, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more trendy "cloud shared hosting". This is a totally distorted interpretation of the literal definition of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud shared hosting environment would distribute the load between separate bunches of web servers in a cluster, which are committed to serving miscellaneous shared hosting services (mail, disk space, stats, DNS, databases, website hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is just a sort of a disk space hosting solution, not a cloud shared hosting one. It's not even near.
- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; specific corporations offer a hosting service for pictures only. This hosting type is suitable if you wish to share a big number of pictures with comrades or acquaintances since the solution is mostly free of cost. You will get a randomly generated link for each pic 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 used for web sites.
- Email hosting: a solution committed to administering your e-mail box accounts. Some corporations provide shared hosting services for sites, but do not supply an e-mail hosting service. If you would like to create a mail address with your domain but do not wish to keep a website, then the email shared hosting service is what you want. You can set up mail address accounts and manage 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 clips. You can either share a link to a given video, or you can embed the video clip in your web page that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of availing of this method instead of uploading the video in a web hosting account is that the video file brings about a certain amount of central processing unit load, so with a handful of video clips and several hundred web page visitors, you may have difficulty with your shared hosting quotas. Embedding the video clip will allow you to administer as many video files as you desire without hassling about system quotas.
- Shared hosting: this is the service that you require if you would like to have a site. To a certain degree, it includes all of the aforementioned hosting kinds since, along with your sites, you can also host images and files, you can set up databases and email address accounts, upload video files, and so on. At Lukas Hosting you can have a glance at shared shared hosting and dedicated hosting plans that allow you to have all of the aforementioned services in one single place. There may be limits depending on the kind of shared hosting service that you've chosen - a free web hosting plan, a paid shared hosting package, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Based on that, your shared hosting plan may be better or worse compared to the typical email/file/video/image hosting plans that are planned for specific content only.
