A shared hosting service appertains to depositing and/or sharing certain content on a hosting server hosted by a shared hosting company. There are various kinds of hosting services utilized for various goals, so let's examine these. In that way, you can pick what you want, on the basis of whether you wish to own a blog, mail addresses, or to share files with mates and acquaintances.

- File hosting: a solution delivered by particular file storage providers, which permits you to share huge files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived documents, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its single aim is to share files, since it does not support website uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either obtain an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to see a list of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to view .html or .php web page files in your web browser. Free-of-charge file storage solutions often include advertisements next to the download links, while a timer makes you await a particular period of time to see them. A given file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you have a paid file storage package, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, and also there is no limitation when it comes to the download speed or the file size.

At present, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting corporations, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more fashionable "cloud shared hosting". This is an entirely inaccurate interpretation of the literal denotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud shared hosting system would divide the load between independent packs of hosting servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending different shared hosting services (electronic mail, web space, stats, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is simply a kind of a data storage hosting solution, not a cloud shared hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; certain providers offer a hosting solution for pictures exclusively. This hosting variant is good if you wish to share a large number of pics with buddies or partners since the service is mostly free. You will obtain a randomly generated link for each and every image or album and you can then share this link. As with the file storage solution, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the service cannot be utilized for sites.

- E-mail hosting: a service committed to handling your mails. Some vendors provide shared hosting services for sites, but do not offer an email hosting service. If you wish to possess an email address with your domain name but do not wish to have a website, then the e-mail shared hosting solution is what you need. You can create e-mail box accounts and manage them, but there will be no web solution for the domain name. The e-mail hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a particular 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 hosting account is that the video brings about a specific amount of central processing unit load, so with several videos and several hundred viewers, you may have difficulty with your shared hosting supplies. Embedding the video file will enable you to use as many videos as you want to without bothering about system supplies.

- Shared hosting: this is the service that you require if you wish to have a website. To some extent, it incorporates all of the aforesaid hosting brands since, along with your web sites, you can also host images and files, you can run databases and mailbox accounts, upload videos, and so on. At Mad Host you can have a peek at shared shared hosting and dedicated server services that allow you to have all of the aforementioned services in one place. There may be restrictions depending on the form of shared hosting service that you've chosen - a free hosting package, a paid shared hosting plan, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Based on that, your shared hosting account may be better or worse in comparison with the routine email/file/video/image hosting packages that are intended for specific web content only.
