A hosting solution implies depositing and/or sharing particular web content on a web hosting server administered by a hosting company. There are various kinds of hosting services used for various ends, so let's have a gaze at these. In that way, you can conclude what you want, depending on whether you wish to establish a blog, mail aliases, or to share files with chums and acquaintances.

- File hosting: a service provided by some web hosts, which allows you to share large files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived files, etc. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only goal is to share files, since it does not offer website uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either obtain a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to explore a record of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to load .html or .php web page files in your web browser. Free-of-charge file storage accounts are often supported by showing advertisements next to the download links, while a timer makes you wait for a particular amount of time to observe them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you purchase a paid file storage account, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download straight away, and also there is no limitation as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

These days, with the help of the cPanel hosting merchandisers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more faddish "cloud hosting". This is a completely inaccurate interpretation of the literal meaning of "cloud hosting". A real cloud hosting system would assign the load between autonomous bunches of servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending different hosting services (electronic mail, storage space, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is merely a brand of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; some distributors offer a hosting solution for images solely. This hosting type is appropriate if you wish to share a vast amount of pics with comrades or partners since the service is generally free of cost. You will receive a randomly generated link for each image or album and you can then share this link. As with the file storage service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be used for web pages.

- E-mail hosting: a solution committed to managing your electronic mail accounts. Some firms provide hosting services for web sites, but do not offer an e-mail service. If you want to launch an email address with your domain name but do not want to have a web site, then the e-mail hosting service is what you need. You can open email mailbox accounts and manage them, but there will be no web solution for the domain name. The email hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.

- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a particular video, or you can embed the video file in your web page that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of availing of this approach in lieu of uploading the video in a hosting account is that the video brings about a given amount of central processing unit load, so with several videos and a few hundred site visitors, you may have a hard time with your hosting resources. Embedding the video file will permit you to own as many video files as you wish without bothering about system supplies.

- Hosting: this is the service that you need if you desire to own a web site. To a certain degree, it incorporates all of the aforesaid hosting sorts since, along with your sites, you can also host pics and files, you can create databases and email mailbox accounts, upload videos, etc. At FiduHosting you can have a glance at shared hosting and dedicated server packages that enable you to have all of the aforesaid solutions in a single place. There may be restrictions based on the form of hosting service that you've chosen - a free hosting package, a paid shared website hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Based on that, your hosting plan may be better or worse in comparison with the routine e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are intended for specific content only.
