A shared hosting service entails keeping and/or sharing certain web content on a web server run by a shared hosting provider. There are various categories of hosting services utilized for various ends, so let's take a gaze at them. Thus, you can pick what you need, on the basis of whether you'd like to launch a website, e-mails, or to share files with comrades and colleagues.

- File hosting: a service delivered by some firms, which lets you share bulky files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archives, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole goal is to share files, since it does not offer website uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either receive 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 be unable to open .html or .php web site files in your browser. Free file hosting accounts are frequently supported by showing ads beside the download links, while a timer forces you to await a particular spell of time to perceive them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you get a paid file storage account, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download straight away, and also there is no limitation with regard to the download speed or the file size.

Nowadays, with the help of the cPanel hosting providers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more stylish "cloud shared hosting". This is an entirely incorrect explanation of the actual connotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud shared hosting platform would allocate the workload between individual groups of hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving various shared hosting services (mail, disk storage, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is simply a type of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud shared hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; some firms provide a hosting service for images solely. This hosting kind is suitable if you wish to share a great quantity of images with chums or colleagues since the service is commonly free of charge. You will receive a random link for each 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 service cannot be used for websites.

- Email hosting: a solution devoted to taking care of your e-mails. Some corporations provide shared hosting services for web sites, but do not offer an e-mail hosting solution. If you would like to own an e-mail address with your domain but do not want to run a web site, then the email shared hosting solution is what you want. You can set up email accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domain name. The e-mail hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP servers.

- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a given video file, or you can embed the video in your web site that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of using this method in lieu of uploading the video file in a hosting account is that the video file brings about a certain amount of central processing unit load, so with a few video clips and a few hundred site viewers, you may have a hard time with your shared hosting supplies. Embedding the video clip will enable you to administer as many video files as you desire without hassling about system quotas.

- Shared hosting: this is the service that you require if you would like to have a site. To some extent, it involves all of the aforementioned hosting categories since, along with your web pages, you can also host images and files, you can run databases and email address accounts, upload video files, etc. At MTWS you can take a glimpse at shared shared hosting and dedicated server plans that allow you to get all of the aforementioned services in a single place. There may be restrictions depending on the form of shared hosting service that you've picked - a free web hosting package, a paid shared website hosting account, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your shared hosting account may be better or worse compared with the customary e-mail/file/video/image hosting packages that are meant for specific web content only.
