A website hosting solution includes stashing and/or sharing particular content on a web hosting server hosted by a website hosting company. There are different varieties of hosting services used for various ends, so let's survey these. Doing so, you can choose what you want, depending on whether you desire to create a blog, mailbox accounts, or to share files with pals and acquaintances.

- File hosting: a solution made available by various providers, which enables you to share huge files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived documents, etc. This solution is also known as file storage, and its sole purpose is to share files, since it does not offer web site uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either receive an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to read a table of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to view .html or .php web page files in your web browser. Free file storage accounts often include ads next to the download links, while a timer obliges you to await a certain spell of time to see them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you possess a paid file storage account, there are no limitations 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 present, with the help of the cPanel web hosting traders, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more stylish "cloud website hosting". This is a totally imprecise explanation of the actual meaning of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting platform would divide the tasks at hand between independent sets of web servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending various website hosting services (email, disk storage, stats, DNS, databases, website hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is simply a sort of a data storage hosting solution, not a cloud website hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; specific companies provide a hosting solution for pictures only. This hosting type is appropriate if you wish to share a big amount of images with mates or partners since the service is mostly free of cost. You will obtain a randomly generated link for each picture or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the solution cannot be utilized for websites.

- Email hosting: a solution dedicated to handling your e-mail accounts. Some providers provide website hosting services for web pages, but do not offer an e-mail service. If you wish to get a mail address with your domain but do not wish to possess a website, then the e-mail website hosting service is what you require. You can set up email address accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting service for the domain name. The e-mail hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this solution enables you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a given video, or you can embed the video in your web page that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of availing of this approach instead of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video file produces a certain amount of CPU load, so with a bunch of videos and several hundred web page viewers, you may have trouble with your website hosting resources. Embedding the video clip will allow you to utilize as many video files as you want to without worrying about system quotas.

- Website hosting: this is the service that you need if you would like to own a site. To a certain extent, it incorporates all of the aforementioned hosting kinds since, along with your websites, you can also host pics and files, you can keep databases and email address accounts, upload video clips, etc. At BigHost you can see shared website hosting and dedicated web hosting packages that permit you to get all of the abovementioned services in one single location. There may be restrictions depending on the type of website hosting service that you've picked - a free hosting account, a paid shared web hosting plan, a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server. Based on that, your website hosting plan may be better or worse in comparison with the typical email/file/video/image hosting packages that are conceived for specific content only.
