A shared hosting service applies to keeping and/or sharing particular content on a server handled by a shared hosting distributor. There are various kinds of hosting services used for different ends, so let's explore these. Doing so, you can determine what you need, depending on whether you desire to own a website, email mailbox accounts, or to share files with friends and acquaintances.

- File hosting: a solution furnished by certain hosts, which enables you to share immense files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived files, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its single function is to share files, since it does not support website uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either obtain a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to read a record of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to see .html or .php website files in your web browser. Free file storage solutions are frequently supported by showing adverts by the download links, while a timer compels you to await a particular span of time to observe them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you purchase a paid file storage plan, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download straight away, and also there is no limitation as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

At present, with the assistance of the cPanel web hosting merchants, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more trendy "cloud shared hosting". This is an entirely incongruous interpretation of the literal meaning of "cloud hosting". A real cloud shared hosting environment would allocate the load between separate bunches of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are devoted to serving miscellaneous shared hosting services (mail, disk storage, stats, DNS, databases, web hosting CP, etc.) So, the file hosting service is merely a type of a storage space hosting solution, not a cloud shared hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; given distributors offer a hosting service for pictures only. This hosting type is appropriate if you wish to share a vast number of pics with comrades or colleagues since the service is usually free of charge. You will get a random link for each picture or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file storage service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the solution cannot be used for web sites.

- E-mail hosting: a service dedicated to tackling your e-mails. Some corporations provide shared hosting services for web sites, but do not supply an e-mail hosting service. If you would like to create an email address with your domain but do not want to run a website, then the email shared hosting service is what you need. You can set up mailbox accounts and administer them, but there will be no web service for the domain. The e-mail hosting service includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this solution enables you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a particular video, or you can embed the video file in your website that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of utilizing this approach instead of uploading the video in a hosting account is that the video clip brings about a particular amount of CPU load, so with a handful of video clips and a few hundred site visitors, you may have a problem with your shared hosting resources. Embedding the video clip will allow you to use as many videos as you want to without hassling about system resources.

- Shared hosting: this is the service that you require if you would like to keep a web site. To some degree, it contains all of the aforementioned hosting categories since, along with your web sites, you can also host pics and files, you can set up databases and email mailbox accounts, upload video clips, and so on. At Webpaz you can take a look at shared shared hosting and dedicated server solutions that allow you to have all of the aforesaid solutions in a single place. There may be restrictions depending on the kind of shared hosting service that you've opted for - a free web hosting plan, a paid shared web hosting account, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Based on that, your shared hosting plan may be better or worse juxtaposed to the usual e-mail/file/video/image hosting packages that are designed for particular content only.
