A shared hosting service includes depositing and/or sharing certain content on a web server hosted by a shared hosting provider. There are various groups of hosting services used for various goals, so let's examine them. In this way, you can choose what you need, based on whether you wish to run a web site, mails, or to share files with comrades and partners.

- File hosting: a solution provided by various web hosts, which allows you to share immense files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived documents, 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. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either receive a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to survey an inventory of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to load .html or .php web files in your browser. Free-of-charge file hosting packages are often supported by exhibiting advertisements next to the download links, while a timer makes you await a certain interval of time to perceive them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you buy a paid file hosting package, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download straight away, and also there is no limit when it comes to the download speed or the file size.

At present, with the help of the cPanel hosting wholesalers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more stylish "cloud shared hosting". This is a thoroughly inaccurate explanation of the literal denotation of "cloud hosting". A real cloud shared hosting system would divide the load between different hosts of hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving miscellaneous shared hosting services (electronic mail, storage space, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is simply a brand of a storage space hosting solution, not a cloud shared hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: close to file hosting; given companies offer a hosting service for pictures exclusively. This hosting brand is good if you desire to share a great quantity of pics with buddies or colleagues since the solution is usually free of cost. You will obtain a randomly generated link for each and every pic or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the solution cannot be used for websites.

- Email hosting: a solution committed to managing your e-mailbox accounts. Some suppliers provide shared hosting services for web sites, but do not offer an e-mail service. If you want to have a mail address with your domain name but do not want to possess a website, then the e-mail shared hosting service is what you require. You can create mailbox accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domain name. The e-mail hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP servers.

- Video hosting: this service enables you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a given video, or you can embed the video clip in your web site that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of utilizing this approach instead of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video file brings about a given amount of central processing unit load, so with a few video clips and a few hundred site viewers, you may have trouble with your shared hosting quotas. Embedding the video file will allow you to run as many videos as you wish without bothering about system quotas.

- Shared hosting: this is the service that you require if you desire to have a website. To a certain degree, it consists of all of the abovementioned hosting categories since, along with your web pages, you can also host pics and files, you can run databases and email mailbox accounts, upload videos, and so on. At Cyber 16 you can take a look at shared shared hosting and dedicated hosting packages that enable you to get all of the aforementioned solutions in a single place. There may be limitations depending on the sort of shared hosting service that you've chosen - a free web hosting package, a paid shared hosting package, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your shared hosting package may be better or worse in comparison with the conventional email/file/video/image hosting accounts that are devised for particular web content only.
