- File hosting: a service distributed by various vendors, which enables you to share immense files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archived files, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its sole aim is to share files, since it does not offer website uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either get an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to view a roll of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to open .html or .php website files in your web browser. Free file hosting accounts are frequently supported by displaying advertisements by the download links, while a timer obliges you to wait for a specific spell of time to view them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you get a paid file storage package, 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 the moment, with the help of the cPanel hosting merchants, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more faddish "cloud web hosting". This is a totally twisted interpretation of the literal connotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud web hosting system would allot the tasks at hand between separate stacks of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are devoted to serving miscellaneous web hosting services (mail, web space, stats, DNS, databases, website hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is simply a kind of a data storage hosting solution, not a cloud web hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; certain corporations offer a hosting service for pictures only. This hosting kind is good if you want to share a great number of pics with comrades or associates since the service is commonly free of charge. You will get a randomly generated link for each and every pic or album and you can subsequently share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be used for sites.

- E-mail hosting: a solution devoted to taking care of your e-mail box accounts. Some providers offer web hosting services for web sites, but do not provide an e-mail solution. If you want to own an e-mail address with your domain name but do not desire to run a website, then the e-mail web hosting solution is what you need. You can create e-mailbox accounts and administer them, but there will be no web service for the domain name. The e-mail hosting service involves incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP e-mail servers.

- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share videos. You can either share a link to a given video file, or you can embed the video in your site that is hosted elsewhere. The advantage of using this method instead of uploading the video clip in a web hosting account is that the video file generates a specific amount of central processing unit load, so with a handful of video clips and several hundred web page viewers, you may have difficulty with your web hosting quotas. Embedding the video will enable you to utilize as many videos as you wish without worrying about system resources.

- Web hosting: this is the solution that you require if you wish to keep a website. To some extent, it includes all of the aforementioned hosting varieties since, along with your websites, you can also host pictures and files, you can have databases and mails, upload video clips, etc. At Riseshost Hosting you can have a look at shared web hosting and dedicated hosting plans that permit you to get all of the aforementioned solutions in a single place. There may be restrictions based on the form of web hosting service that you've picked - a free web hosting account, a paid shared website hosting package, a VPS hosting or a dedicated server. Based on that, your web hosting plan may be better or worse compared to the typical email/file/video/image hosting packages that are designed for specific content only.
