- File hosting: a service supplied by various providers, which permits you to share large files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived documents, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its single designation is to share files, since it does not offer web page uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either obtain a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to view a roll of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to open .html or .php web page files in your web browser. Free file storage solutions are often supported by exhibiting adverts next to the download links, while a timer makes you await a specific spell of time to see them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you purchase a paid file storage package, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download straight away, and also there is no limit in regard to the download speed or the file size.

These days, with the assistance of the cPanel web hosting suppliers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more trendy "cloud website hosting". This is an entirely amiss explanation of the real connotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting platform would divide the load between independent groups of web servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving different website hosting services (email, storage space, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is only a sort of a disk storage hosting solution, not a cloud website hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; specific companies provide a hosting solution for pictures exclusively. This hosting variant is appropriate if you wish to share a large number of pics with chums or colleagues since the service is mostly free of cost. You will obtain a random link for each image or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the solution cannot be used for web pages.

- E-mail hosting: a solution devoted to administering your e-mail address accounts. Some suppliers offer website hosting services for sites, but do not supply an email solution. If you would like to create an email address with your domain but do not wish to keep a web site, then the e-mail website hosting service is what you need. You can open mail accounts and manage them, but there will be no web solution for the domain. The e-mail hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a given video file, or you can embed the video file in your web page that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of using this method in lieu of uploading the video in a web hosting account is that the video file brings about a particular amount of central processing unit load, so with several video clips and a few hundred site viewers, you may have a problem with your website hosting resources. Embedding the video will enable you to run as many video files as you want to without bothering about system supplies.

- Website hosting: this is the service that you need if you desire to keep a website. To a certain extent, it comprises all of the abovementioned hosting forms since, along with your web sites, you can also host images and files, you can keep databases and mail addresses, upload video clips, and so on. At you can examine shared website hosting and dedicated web hosting plans that allow you to have all of the abovementioned services in one single location. There may be restrictions depending on the sort of website hosting service that you've picked - a free web hosting account, a paid shared web hosting package, a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server. Based on that, your website hosting package may be better or worse compared to the standard e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are planned for particular content only.
