What Exactly are Shared Hosting Solutions?
A shared hosting solution is connected with keeping and/or sharing given content on a hosting server hosted by a shared hosting vendor. There are various types of hosting services utilized for various purposes, so let's review them. Thus, you can conclude what you want, based on whether you desire to launch a website, email aliases, or to share files with buddies and colleagues.
- File hosting: a solution distributed by particular providers, which allows you to share immense files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived documents, etc. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only aim is to share files, since it does not support site uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either get an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to explore a register of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to load .html or .php web site files in your browser. Free file storage accounts frequently involve adverts next to the download links, while a timer obliges you to await a particular interval of time to view them. A given file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you have a paid file hosting plan, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download right away, and also there is no limit when it comes to the download speed or the file size.
These days, with the assistance of the cPanel web hosting traders, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modish "cloud shared hosting". This is a thoroughly distorted interpretation of the real connotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud shared hosting environment would split the tasks at hand between autonomous stacks of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are committed to attending various shared hosting services (electronic mail, data storage, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is merely a sort of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud shared hosting one. It's not even near.
- Image hosting: close to file hosting; some providers provide a hosting solution for pictures exclusively. This hosting brand is good if you wish to share a huge amount of images with chums or acquaintances since the service is usually free. You will get a random link for each and every picture 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 utilized for web sites.
- Email hosting: a service devoted to tackling your e-mail accounts. Some corporations offer shared hosting services for web pages, but do not offer an email service. If you would like to own an e-mail address with your domain name but do not wish to run a website, then the email shared hosting service is what you need. You can set up mail address accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domain name. The email hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.
- Video hosting: this solution permits you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a certain video clip, or you can embed the video file in your web page that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of utilizing this method instead of uploading the video clip in a web hosting account is that the video clip brings about a given amount of central processing unit load, so with a handful of video clips and a few hundred visitors, you may have a hard time with your shared hosting quotas. Embedding the video file will enable you to keep as many videos as you would like without hassling about system resources.
- Shared hosting: this is the solution that you need if you would like to own a website. To some degree, it comprises all of the abovementioned hosting varieties since, along with your sites, you can also host pics and files, you can set up databases and mail address accounts, upload videos, etc. At True Cloud Hosting Uganda you can have a gaze at shared shared hosting and dedicated server services that allow you to have all of the aforementioned services in a single place. There may be limits based on the sort of shared hosting service that you've opted for - a free hosting package, a paid shared web hosting account, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Based on that, your shared hosting plan may be better or worse juxtaposed to the typical e-mail/file/video/image hosting accounts that are meant for particular web content only.
