A website hosting service includes storing and/or sharing particular content on a web server handled by a website hosting distributor. There are various varieties of hosting services used for various purposes, so let's take a look at these. In that way, you can pick what you want, based on whether you'd like to create a website, mail accounts, or to share files with chums and partners.

- File hosting: a solution made available by given firms, which lets you share large files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived files, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only designation is to share files, since it does not support site uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either obtain a randomly created download link for each of them, or you will be able to view a register of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to open .html or .php web site files in your browser. Free-of-charge file hosting services are often supported by exhibiting adverts beside the download links, while a timer obliges you to await a specific span of time to observe them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you own a paid file storage package, 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.

At present, with the assistance of the cPanel web hosting wholesalers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more trendy "cloud website hosting". This is a totally amiss explanation of the literal definition of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting system would apportion the load between autonomous packs of servers in a cluster, which are committed to serving different website hosting services (mail, web space, statistics, DNS, databases, website hosting CP, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is only a sort of a storage space hosting solution, not a cloud website hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; some suppliers offer a hosting service for pictures only. This hosting type is suitable if you wish to share a large number of pics with chums or acquaintances since the service is typically free of cost. You will receive a random link for each and every pic or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the service cannot be used for websites.

- Email hosting: a solution dedicated to handling your email mailbox accounts. Some distributors provide website hosting services for sites, but do not offer an email hosting solution. If you would like to keep an email address with your domain but do not wish to have a site, then the email website hosting solution is what you want. You can open electronic mail accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting service for the domain. The email hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this solution enables you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a specific video clip, or you can embed the video clip in your web page that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of availing of this approach instead of uploading the video in a web hosting account is that the video clip generates a specific amount of central processing unit load, so with a few video clips and a few hundred web site visitors, you may have a hard time with your website hosting quotas. Embedding the video clip will allow you to have as many videos as you want to without bothering about system quotas.

- Website hosting: this is the solution that you need if you want to keep a web site. To a certain degree, it encompasses all of the aforesaid hosting forms since, along with your web sites, you can also host images and files, you can set up databases and e-mail address accounts, upload video clips, and so on. At 7GreatMedia Hosting Services you can have a glimpse at shared website hosting and dedicated web hosting services that permit you to have all of the aforementioned services in one place. There may be limitations depending on the form of website hosting service that you've picked - a free web hosting package, a paid shared website hosting account, a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your website hosting package may be better or worse compared with the normal email/file/video/image hosting plans that are purposed for particular content only.
