What are Shared Hosting Plans?

A shared hosting service concerns stockpiling and/or sharing specific content on a hosting server handled by a shared hosting company. There are different groups of hosting services utilized for various aims, so let's have a glance at them. Thus, you can pick what you need, on the basis of whether you'd like to build a web site, mail accounts, or to share files with mates and colleagues.

- File hosting: a solution furnished by particular providers, which enables you to share bulky files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived files, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its single designation is to share files, since it does not support 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 view an index of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to open .html or .php web files in your web browser. Free file storage packages are often supported by displaying adverts beside the download links, while a timer compels you to await a specific amount of time to perceive them. A given file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you own a paid file hosting package, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, 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 hosting traders, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more fashionable "cloud shared hosting". This is a completely improper explanation of the actual denotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud shared hosting platform would allot the tasks at hand between different bunches of servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving various shared hosting services (mail, web space, stats, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is simply a variety of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud shared hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; certain companies provide a hosting service for images only. This hosting type is appropriate if you wish to share a large amount of images with mates or associates since the solution is mostly free of cost. You will receive a random link for each picture or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the service cannot be used for sites.

- Email hosting: a solution committed to tackling your email accounts. Some distributors offer shared hosting services for web pages, but do not provide an email solution. If you would like to open a mail address with your domain but do not want to own a website, then the email shared hosting solution is what you require. You can create mail address accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domain name. The e-mail hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service enables you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a given video, or you can embed the video file in your web site that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of utilizing this method instead of uploading the video in a hosting account is that the video clip brings about a specific amount of central processing unit load, so with a couple of video clips and a few hundred web site visitors, you may have a hard time with your shared hosting resources. Embedding the video clip will allow you to possess as many videos as you want to without worrying about system resources.

- Shared hosting: this is the solution that you require if you want to keep a site. To a certain extent, it includes all of the aforesaid hosting varieties since, along with your web sites, you can also host pics and files, you can keep databases and e-mailbox accounts, upload video clips, etc. At Interweb Machine you can have a glimpse at shared shared hosting and dedicated server packages that allow you to get all of the aforementioned solutions in one single location. There may be limitations based on the sort of shared hosting service that you've opted for - a free web hosting plan, a paid shared web hosting account, a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. Based on that, your shared hosting package may be better or worse juxtaposed to the routine e-mail/file/video/image hosting accounts that are conceived for particular web content only.
