- File hosting: a solution supplied by various firms, which permits you to share enormous files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archives, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its sole objective is to share files, since it does not offer web site uploading. Once the files are uploaded, you will either get a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to view an index of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to open .html or .php web page files in your browser. Free-of-cost file storage plans are often supported by displaying advertisements by the download links, while a timer obliges you to wait for a particular amount of time to perceive them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you own a paid file hosting account, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download at once, and also there is no restriction as far as the download speed and the file size are concerned.

Nowadays, with the help of the cPanel web hosting merchandisers, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modern "cloud web hosting". This is a completely untrue explanation of the actual connotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud web hosting platform would allocate the workload between individual packs of servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending various web hosting services (electronic mail, storage space, stats, DNS, databases, website hosting CP, and so on.) So, the file hosting service is merely a variety of a disk space hosting solution, not a cloud web hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; certain vendors offer a hosting solution for images only. This hosting kind is good if you wish to share a vast number of images with chums or partners since the solution is usually free of charge. You will receive a randomly generated link for every 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 service cannot be used for web pages.

- E-mail hosting: a service committed to administering your mail addresses. Some companies provide web hosting services for sites, but do not supply an e-mail service. If you would like to open an email address with your domain but do not want to keep a website, then the email web hosting solution is what you need. You can set up e-mail address accounts and manage them, but there will be no web service for the domain name. The e-mail hosting solution involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a given video clip, or you can embed the video file in your web page that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of utilizing this method instead of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video file produces a specific amount of CPU load, so with a couple of videos and several hundred visitors, you may have difficulty with your web hosting quotas. Embedding the video file will allow you to possess as many video files as you would like without bothering about system supplies.

- Web hosting: this is the solution that you require if you wish to have a website. To a certain degree, it involves all of the abovementioned hosting forms since, along with your web sites, you can also host pics and files, you can create databases and electronic mail accounts, upload videos, and so on. At Flash Code Hosting you can have a gaze at shared web hosting and dedicated hosting plans that permit you to get all of the aforementioned services in one location. There may be limits depending on the kind of web hosting service that you've settled on - a free hosting package, a paid shared web hosting plan, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web hosting package may be better or worse compared to the common e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are created for particular content only.
