A hosting service implies hoarding and/or sharing specific content on a server hosted by a hosting distributor. There are various categories of hosting services utilized for various purposes, so let's have a gaze at these. Thus, you can decide what you want, on the basis of whether you'd like to set up a website, email address accounts, or to share files with mates and associates.

- File hosting: a service made available by various web hosts, which enables you to share large files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived files, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its single purpose is to share files, since it does not support site uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either get a randomly created download link for each of them, or you will be able to examine a table of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to load .html or .php web site files in your browser. Free-of-cost file hosting packages are often supported by exhibiting adverts by the download links, while a timer makes you wait for a given spell of time to view them. A given file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you own a paid file storage plan, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download right away, and also there is no restriction in regard to the download speed or the file size.

At present, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting vendors, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modish "cloud hosting". This is a completely imprecise explanation of the literal definition of "cloud hosting". A real cloud hosting platform would distribute the load between different bunches of servers in a cluster, which are devoted to serving different hosting services (electronic mail, web space, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting solution is simply a type of a disk storage hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; given vendors offer a hosting service for images exclusively. This hosting type is suitable if you wish to share an immense quantity of images with mates or colleagues since the service is usually free of cost. You will receive a randomly generated link for each pic or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the solution cannot be utilized for web sites.

- E-mail hosting: a solution dedicated to tackling your mail addresses. Some vendors provide hosting services for sites, but do not offer an email hosting service. If you would like to run an e-mail address with your domain but do not wish to run a web site, then the email hosting service is what you need. You can set up e-mail box accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domain name. The e-mail hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service allows you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a specific video, or you can embed the video clip in your web site that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of availing of this approach in lieu of uploading the video clip in a web hosting account is that the video file creates a certain amount of central processing unit load, so with several videos and a few hundred site viewers, you may have a problem with your hosting quotas. Embedding the video will enable you to possess as many video files as you desire without hassling about system resources.

- Hosting: this is the service that you need if you wish to run a website. To some extent, it embodies all of the abovementioned hosting sorts since, along with your sites, you can also host pics and files, you can run databases and mail aliases, upload videos, etc. At Hypervirtual you can observe shared hosting and dedicated package plans that enable you to get all of the aforesaid solutions in a single location. There may be limitations depending on the sort of hosting service that you've chosen - a free web hosting plan, a paid shared web hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your hosting package may be better or worse compared with the regular e-mail/file/video/image hosting accounts that are meant for specific content only.
