A shared hosting service refers to saving and/or sharing specific content on a hosting server managed by a shared hosting supplier. There are various categories of hosting services used for various purposes, so let's take a look at these. In this way, you can elect what you need, on the basis of whether you wish to create a blog, mail addresses, or to share files with mates and partners.

- File hosting: a solution provided by given web hosts, which permits you to share big files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived documents, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its single goal is to share files, since it does not support site 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 examine a roster of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to open .html or .php web files in your web browser. Free-of-cost file hosting solutions are often supported by exhibiting advertisements by the download links, while a timer forces you to wait for a certain span of time to perceive them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you possess a paid file hosting account, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download right away, and also there is no limitation when it comes to the download speed or the file size.

At present, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting merchandisers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more stylish "cloud shared hosting". This is a thoroughly false explanation of the literal meaning of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud shared hosting environment would allocate the tasks at hand between independent stacks of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending miscellaneous shared hosting services (email, web space, statistics, DNS, databases, website hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting service is only a type of a disk storage hosting solution, not a cloud shared hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; given firms provide a hosting solution for images solely. This hosting variant is good if you desire to share an enormous amount of pictures with chums or acquaintances since the service is commonly free of charge. You will obtain a randomly generated link for every picture 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 utilized for sites.

- Email hosting: a service committed to managing your e-mail addresses. Some firms offer shared hosting services for sites, but do not supply an e-mail solution. If you wish to set up an e-mail address with your domain but do not want to own a website, then the e-mail shared hosting service is what you want. You can open e-mail address accounts and administer them, but there will be no web solution for the domain name. The email hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.

- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a particular video file, or you can embed the video file in your web site that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of availing of this method instead of uploading the video file in a hosting account is that the video creates a certain amount of central processing unit load, so with a bunch of video clips and a few hundred visitors, you may have a hard time with your shared hosting reserves. Embedding the video will allow you to administer as many video clips as you desire without bothering about system quotas.

- Shared hosting: this is the service that you need if you want to run a website. To some extent, it involves all of the aforementioned hosting variants since, along with your web pages, you can also host pics and files, you can set up databases and mails, upload videos, and so on. At Elias Store you can have a gaze at shared shared hosting and dedicated server packages that enable you to have all of the aforesaid services in a single place. There may be limits based on the type of shared hosting service that you've opted for - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting plan, a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your shared hosting package may be better or worse compared to the normal e-mail/file/video/image hosting accounts that are made for particular web content only.
