A shared hosting solution implies hoarding and/or sharing given web content on a hosting server managed by a shared hosting vendor. There are different sorts of hosting services utilized for different aims, so let's take a glance at them. Thus, you can conclude what you need, on the basis of whether you wish to create a website, email mailbox accounts, or to share files with buddies and associates.

- File hosting: a solution delivered by particular web hosts, which lets you share large files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived files, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its single goal is to share files, since it does not offer site uploading. Once 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 table of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to view .html or .php web site files in your web browser. Free-of-charge file hosting solutions are often supported by showing advertisements next to the download links, while a timer compels you to await a specific stretch of time to perceive them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you possess a paid file hosting account, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download immediately, and also there is no restriction as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

At the moment, with the help of the cPanel web hosting merchandisers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modish "cloud shared hosting". This is a completely wrong explanation of the actual definition of "cloud hosting". A real cloud shared hosting platform would allocate the tasks at hand between autonomous hosts of servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending various shared hosting services (email, disk storage, stats, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is only a brand of a disk storage hosting solution, not a cloud shared hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; some suppliers offer a hosting service for pictures only. This hosting variant is good if you desire to share a big number of pictures with chums or partners since the service is commonly free of charge. You will receive a random link for every image or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the solution cannot be utilized for web pages.

- Email hosting: a solution dedicated to handling your e-mail addresses. Some firms provide shared hosting services for websites, but do not offer an e-mail solution. If you desire to keep a mail address with your domain but do not want to have a site, then the e-mail shared hosting solution is what you need. You can open email accounts and manage them, but there will be no web service for the domain name. The e-mail hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.

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

- Shared hosting: this is the solution that you require if you want to own a web site. To a certain degree, it includes all of the aforementioned hosting brands since, along with your web sites, you can also host pictures and files, you can set up databases and email mailbox accounts, upload video files, and so on. At Sankia Tech you can take a gaze at shared shared hosting and dedicated server services that allow you to get all of the aforementioned solutions in one place. There may be limitations based on the type of shared hosting service that you've opted for - a free web hosting package, a paid shared hosting plan, a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. Based on that, your shared hosting account may be better or worse juxtaposed to the ordinary email/file/video/image hosting packages that are created for specific web content only.
