A shared web hosting service refers to stashing and/or sharing specific content on a hosting server administered by a shared web hosting distributor. There are different groups of hosting services used for different purposes, so let's examine these. Doing so, you can determine what you want, depending on whether you wish to run a web page, mailbox accounts, or to share files with chums and colleagues.

- File hosting: a service offered by various providers, which allows you to share big files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived documents, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its only objective is to share files, since it does not offer website uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either get an accidentally generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to see an index of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to load .html or .php web site files in your web browser. Free file hosting solutions often involve adverts next to the download links, while a timer makes you await a particular interval of time to view them. A single file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you run a paid file storage account, there are no limits 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 web hosting merchants, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more faddish "cloud shared web hosting". This is a completely distorted explanation of the literal connotation of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud shared web hosting environment would split the tasks at hand between autonomous bunches of servers in a cluster, which are committed to attending various shared web hosting services (mail, storage space, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is only a sort of a data storage hosting service, not a cloud shared web hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: comparable with file hosting; certain vendors provide a hosting solution for images only. This hosting brand is appropriate if you desire to share an immense quantity of images with mates or associates since the service is mostly free of cost. You will receive a random link for each picture or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting service, .html and .php files are not supported, so the service cannot be utilized for sites.

- E-mail hosting: a service devoted to administering your mails. Some companies offer shared web hosting services for web pages, but do not provide an e-mail solution. If you want to set up an e-mail address with your domain name but do not desire to own a site, then the e-mail shared web hosting service is what you need. You can open e-mail box accounts and manage them, but there will be no hosting service for the domain name. The e-mail hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP servers.

- Video hosting: this solution enables you to upload and share video clips. You can either share a link to a particular video clip, or you can embed the video clip in your website that is hosted somewhere else. The advantage of utilizing this approach instead of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video brings about a given amount of central processing unit load, so with a couple of videos and a few hundred web page visitors, you may have trouble with your shared web hosting quotas. Embedding the video clip will enable you to run as many video files as you want to without hassling about system resources.

- Shared web hosting: this is the service that you require if you desire to possess a site. To some extent, it embodies all of the aforementioned hosting kinds since, along with your websites, you can also host images and files, you can keep databases and emails, upload video clips, etc. At Enterprise Technology you can view shared shared web hosting and dedicated server web hosting packages that permit you to have all of the aforementioned solutions in a single location. There may be limits based on the sort of shared web hosting service that you've opted for - a free hosting account, a paid shared web hosting plan, a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server. Based on that, your shared web hosting plan may be better or worse compared with the standard e-mail/file/video/image hosting packages that are tailored for specific web content only.
