A shared web hosting service appertains to hoarding and/or sharing certain web content on a web hosting server administered by a shared web hosting distributor. There are different kinds of hosting services used for various ends, so let's have a peek at these. In that way, you can decide what you need, on the basis of whether you desire to have a site, mail aliases, or to share files with friends and partners.

- File hosting: a service delivered by certain firms, which lets you share huge files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived files, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its single objective is to share files, since it does not offer website uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either receive an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to survey a record of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to load .html or .php web files in your browser. Free-of-cost file storage accounts are often supported by showing adverts beside the download links, while a timer obliges you to await a given period of time to observe them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you run a paid file hosting account, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download immediately, and also there is no restriction with regard to the download speed or the file size.

These days, with the assistance of the cPanel web hosting firms, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modish "cloud shared web hosting". This is a thoroughly twisted interpretation of the literal meaning of "cloud hosting". A real cloud shared web hosting environment would allot the load between autonomous stacks of servers in a cluster, which are devoted to serving different shared web hosting services (electronic mail, disk storage, stats, DNS, databases, website hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is just a brand of a storage space hosting solution, not a cloud shared web hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; some suppliers provide a hosting service for pictures only. This hosting brand is suitable if you wish to share a large quantity of pics with pals or associates since the service is commonly free. You will receive a randomly generated link for every image or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file storage solution, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the solution cannot be utilized for sites.

- E-mail hosting: a solution devoted to tackling your e-mail aliases. Some providers offer shared web hosting services for web pages, but do not supply an e-mail hosting service. If you would like to possess an email address with your domain but do not desire to keep a web site, then the email shared web hosting service is what you require. You can open e-mailbox accounts and manage them, but there will be no web solution for the domain name. The email hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.

- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a given video, or you can embed the video in your website that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of utilizing this approach in lieu of uploading the video file in a hosting account is that the video creates a particular amount of central processing unit load, so with a few video files and several hundred web site visitors, you may have difficulty with your shared web hosting reserves. Embedding the video file will allow you to have as many video files as you would like without hassling about system quotas.

- Shared web hosting: this is the service that you need if you desire to own a website. To some extent, it embodies all of the aforementioned hosting categories since, along with your sites, you can also host images and files, you can run databases and email addresses, upload videos, etc. At 7-24 Web Hosting you can see shared shared web hosting and dedicated server web hosting solutions that allow you to have all of the abovementioned solutions in a single place. There may be restrictions based on the sort of shared web hosting service that you've opted for - a free web hosting account, a paid shared website hosting package, a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your shared web hosting package may be better or worse compared to the typical email/file/video/image hosting packages that are meant for specific web content only.
