A hosting service appertains to stockpiling and/or sharing specific content on a web hosting server administered by a hosting supplier. There are various forms of hosting services utilized for various goals, so let's take a look at these. Thus, you can elect what you want, on the basis of whether you wish to have a blog, mails, or to share files with pals and partners.

- File hosting: a service provided by some vendors, which allows you to share huge files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived documents, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its single objective is to share files, since it does not offer web 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 explore a roll of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to load .html or .php website files in your browser. Free-of-charge file storage packages are often supported by showing ads by the download links, while a timer forces you to await a particular period of time to see them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you buy a paid file hosting plan, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download at once, and also there is no restriction in regard to the download speed or the file size.

Nowadays, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting merchants, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more stylish "cloud hosting". This is a completely inaccurate interpretation of the actual definition of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting platform would split the workload between individual stacks of servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending miscellaneous site hosting services (mail, web space, stats, DNS, databases, hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is just a brand of a disk space hosting service, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: close to file hosting; certain companies offer a hosting service for images only. This hosting type is good if you want to share a big amount of pictures with friends or colleagues since the solution is generally free of cost. You will receive a randomly generated link for every image or album and you can then share this link. As with the file storage solution, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be used for web pages.

- Email hosting: a solution committed to administering your e-mails. Some distributors offer web page hosting services for websites, but do not offer an email solution. If you want to launch a mail address with your domain name but do not want to possess a site, then the e-mail hosting service is what you require. You can open e-mail box accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domains. The e-mail hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a given video clip, or you can embed the video clip in your site that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of utilizing this approach instead of uploading the video in a web hosting account is that the video produces a specific amount of CPU load, so with a handful of videos and several hundred site visitors, you may have a hard time with your web site hosting quotas. Embedding the video clip will enable you to keep as many videos as you want without worrying about system supplies.

- Web page hosting: this is the service that you require if you desire to own a website. To some extent, it encompasses all of the abovementioned hosting forms since, along with your sites, you can also host pictures and files, you can keep databases and mail addresses, upload video clips, etc. At SynNetHost, for instance, you can take a glance at web hosting and dedicated web server hosting accounts that permit you to get all of the abovementioned solutions in one single place. There may be limitations based on the form of hosting solution that you've opted for - a free hosting account, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your webspace hosting account may be better or worse juxtaposed to the standard e-mail/file/video/image hosting plans that are intended for specific content exclusively.
