A web hosting service implies keeping and/or sharing specific web content on a server hosted by a web hosting provider. There are different sorts of hosting services used for different purposes, so let's take a glimpse at these. Thus, you can conclude what you want, based on whether you'd like to set up a blog, mailbox accounts, or to share files with chums and partners.

- File hosting: a solution offered by certain providers, which allows you to share bulky files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived documents, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its single function is to share files, since it does not support website uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either receive a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to survey an index of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to open .html or .php web site files in your web browser. Free-of-charge file hosting packages frequently involve adverts beside the download links, while a timer compels you to await a specific stretch of time to view them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you run 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 limit in regard to the download speed or the file size.

At present, with the help of the cPanel web hosting merchandisers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more stylish "cloud web hosting". This is an entirely unsuitable explanation of the literal meaning of "cloud hosting". A real cloud web hosting environment would assign the tasks at hand between autonomous bunches of hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving miscellaneous web hosting services (email, disk space, stats, DNS, databases, website hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is merely a brand of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud web hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; certain companies offer a hosting service for pictures only. This hosting brand is appropriate if you desire to share a huge number of pics with comrades or acquaintances since the solution is mostly free of charge. You will obtain a random link for every picture or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the solution cannot be utilized for web pages.

- E-mail hosting: a service committed to tackling your e-mails. Some vendors offer web hosting services for web pages, but do not offer an email service. If you would like to keep a mail address with your domain but do not desire to keep a web site, then the e-mail web hosting solution is what you want. You can create email accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting service for the domain. The e-mail hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.

- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a specific video, or you can embed the video clip in your web page that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of utilizing this approach instead of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video clip produces a particular amount of CPU load, so with a couple of video clips and several hundred web site visitors, you may have a hard time with your web hosting reserves. Embedding the video file will enable you to utilize as many video clips as you wish without hassling about system quotas.

- Web hosting: this is the service that you need if you would like to run a web site. To some extent, it involves all of the abovementioned hosting variants since, along with your websites, you can also host images and files, you can run databases and e-mail addresses, upload videos, and so on. At Nawazish you can have a gaze at shared web hosting and dedicated hosting solutions that allow you to get all of the abovementioned solutions in a single location. There may be restrictions based on the kind of web hosting service that you've selected - a free web hosting package, a paid shared website hosting package, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Based on that, your web hosting plan may be better or worse compared with the normal email/file/video/image hosting packages that are conceived for particular web content only.
