A hosting service is associated with stashing and/or sharing specific web content on a hosting server managed by a hosting provider. There are various types of hosting services used for different ends, so let's review them. Doing so, you can decide what you need, on the basis of whether you wish to run a website, e-mail aliases, or to share files with pals and acquaintances.

- File hosting: a service made available by particular firms, which enables you to share bulky files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived files, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its only objective is to share files, since it does not offer web site uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either get an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to see a list of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to view .html or .php website files in your browser. Free-of-cost file hosting services are often supported by displaying advertisements beside the download links, while a timer obliges you to await a given amount of time to see them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you run a paid file hosting plan, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download at once, and also there is no restriction when it comes to the download speed or the file size.

These days, with the help of the cPanel hosting distributors, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more faddish "cloud hosting". This is a totally inapt interpretation of the real meaning of "cloud hosting". A real cloud hosting system would divide the tasks at hand between independent hosts of hosting servers in a cluster, which are committed to attending various hosting services (email, web space, statistics, DNS, databases, hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is merely a sort of a data storage hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; some firms provide a hosting service for images only. This hosting variant is good if you would like to share a vast amount of pics with chums or associates since the solution is generally free of cost. You will obtain a random link for each and every image or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be utilized for web sites.

- E-mail hosting: a solution dedicated to handling your e-mail box accounts. Some suppliers provide hosting services for websites, but do not provide an e-mail hosting service. If you desire to have an email address with your domain but do not wish to possess a site, then the email hosting service is what you want. You can set up email accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting service for the domain. The email hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a specific video clip, or you can embed the video clip in your website that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of using this approach instead of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video clip brings about a certain amount of CPU load, so with a handful of videos and a few hundred web page visitors, you may have trouble with your hosting resources. Embedding the video file will allow you to keep as many videos as you would like without bothering about system resources.

- Hosting: this is the solution that you require if you wish to have a site. To a certain extent, it embodies all of the aforesaid hosting sorts since, along with your sites, you can also host images and files, you can set up databases and email mailbox accounts, upload video files, and so on. At Best Paid Hosting you can take a glance at shared hosting and dedicated server packages that allow you to get all of the aforementioned solutions in a single location. There may be limitations based on the form of hosting service that you've settled on - a free web hosting package, a paid shared web hosting package, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your hosting package may be better or worse compared with the normal email/file/video/image hosting plans that are conceived for specific web content only.
