Explanation of Website Hosting Plans
A website hosting service means stashing and/or sharing certain content on a web hosting server handled by a website hosting vendor. There are various varieties of hosting services used for different ends, so let's explore them. In that way, you can choose what you want, depending on whether you desire to build a blog, mail addresses, or to share files with pals and partners.

- File hosting: a solution made available by some hosts, which enables you to share large files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived documents, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its only goal is to share files, since it does not support website uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either obtain an accidentally created download link for each of them, or you will be able to see a record of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to see .html or .php web page files in your web browser. Free file storage packages frequently involve advertisements by the download links, while a timer makes you await a given period of time to observe them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you possess a paid file storage plan, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, and also there is no limit with regard to the download speed or the file size.
At the moment, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting retailers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more faddish "cloud website hosting". This is a thoroughly amiss explanation of the real denotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting environment would apportion the load between separate groups of servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving various website hosting services (electronic mail, disk space, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is only a kind of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud website hosting one. It's not even near.
- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; certain vendors offer a hosting service for images exclusively. This hosting type is appropriate if you wish to share a huge number of pics with pals or partners since the service is usually free of cost. You will obtain a randomly generated link for each image or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file storage service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be utilized for web sites.
- Email hosting: a service devoted to managing your e-mail aliases. Some providers offer website hosting services for websites, but do not provide an e-mail hosting service. If you would like to launch a mail address with your domain but do not wish to possess a web site, then the email website hosting service is what you require. You can create e-mailbox accounts and manage them, but there will be no web service for the domain. The email hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.
- Video hosting: this solution permits 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 page that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of availing of this method in lieu of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video generates a particular amount of CPU load, so with a handful of videos and several hundred web page viewers, you may have difficulty with your website hosting quotas. Embedding the video will permit you to manage as many video files as you want to without bothering about system supplies.
- Website hosting: this is the solution that you require if you would like to have a site. To a certain degree, it comprises all of the aforementioned hosting forms since, along with your web pages, you can also host images and files, you can set up databases and mail accounts, upload video files, and so on. At DMR Hosting you can take a glance at shared website hosting and dedicated web hosting services that permit you to get all of the aforementioned solutions in one location. There may be restrictions based on the type of website hosting service that you've picked - a free web hosting account, a paid shared web hosting plan, a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server. Based on that, your website hosting plan may be better or worse compared with the conventional email/file/video/image hosting packages that are purposed for specific web content only.
