A shared hosting service includes depositing and/or sharing particular content on a web hosting server hosted by a shared hosting vendor. There are various categories of hosting services utilized for various goals, so let's study them. Doing so, you can determine what you want, depending on whether you'd like to build a web portal, email accounts, or to share files with friends and partners.

- File hosting: a solution offered by various providers, which lets you share large files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived files, etc. This solution is also known as file storage, and its single designation is to share files, since it does not support web page uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either receive an accidentally created 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 not be able to open .html or .php web files in your web browser. Free-of-charge file storage accounts frequently include ads beside the download links, while a timer makes you await a specific spell of time to perceive them. A given file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you purchase a paid file hosting plan, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, and also there is no limit in regard to the download speed or the file size.

These days, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting wholesalers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more stylish "cloud shared hosting". This is a thoroughly twisted explanation of the literal definition of "cloud hosting". A real cloud shared hosting environment would apportion the tasks at hand between different stacks of servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to serving miscellaneous shared hosting services (mail, web space, stats, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is only a type of a disk space hosting solution, not a cloud shared hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; some corporations offer a hosting service for images solely. This hosting kind is appropriate if you wish to share a huge number of images with chums or colleagues since the solution is usually free. You will obtain a random link for every pic or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file storage solution, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the service cannot be used for sites.

- E-mail hosting: a solution committed to tackling your e-mail address accounts. Some firms provide shared hosting services for web sites, but do not provide an e-mail service. If you would like to own an email address with your domain name but do not wish to possess a website, then the e-mail shared hosting service is what you want. You can open mail accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting service for the domain name. The email hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP email servers.

- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a certain video file, or you can embed the video clip in your web site that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of utilizing this approach in lieu of uploading the video in a web hosting account is that the video clip produces a particular amount of CPU load, so with a couple of video clips and a few hundred site viewers, you may have a problem with your shared hosting resources. Embedding the video file will permit you to run as many video files as you wish without hassling about system quotas.

- Shared hosting: this is the solution that you require if you wish to run a website. To a certain degree, it embodies all of the abovementioned hosting types since, along with your web sites, you can also host pics and files, you can keep databases and emails, upload videos, etc. At vortex-hosting you can examine shared shared hosting and dedicated server solutions that permit you to have all of the abovementioned solutions in a single place. There may be restrictions based on the sort of shared hosting service that you've selected - a free hosting account, a paid shared web hosting plan, a virtual private servers or a dedicated server. Based on that, your shared hosting plan may be better or worse in comparison with the usual e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are intended for particular content only.
