A shared web hosting service means stashing and/or sharing given content on a server run by a shared web hosting vendor. There are various categories of hosting services used for various aims, so let's examine them. In that way, you can choose what you need, based on whether you desire to launch a website, email accounts, or to share files with pals and colleagues.

- File hosting: a service supplied by certain firms, which allows you to share huge files. These could be disk images, motion pictures, audio files, archived documents, etc. This service is also known as file storage, and its single purpose is to share files, since it does not offer web page uploading. Once 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 table of all the files in a directory, but you will not be able to open .html or .php web files in your web browser. Free-of-cost file storage accounts are frequently supported by displaying adverts next to the download links, while a timer makes you wait for a particular stretch of time to see them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you have a paid file hosting package, there are no limitations as to how many files you can upload/download at once, and also there is no limitation with regard to the download speed or the file size.

These days, with the help of the cPanel hosting firms, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more modern "cloud shared web hosting". This is a completely twisted interpretation of the literal definition of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud shared web hosting environment would allot the load between autonomous stacks of web servers in a cluster, which are dedicated to attending different shared web hosting services (mail, web space, stats, DNS, databases, hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is only a brand of a disk space hosting solution, not a cloud shared web hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: similar to file hosting; some firms offer a hosting service for pictures exclusively. This hosting variant is appropriate if you want to share a great amount of pictures with comrades or partners since the service is typically free of cost. You will obtain a random link for each image or album and you can then share this link. As with the file storage service, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the service cannot be used for web sites.

- E-mail hosting: a service devoted to managing your e-mail aliases. Some providers provide shared web hosting services for websites, but do not supply an e-mail service. If you would like to create a mail address with your domain but do not wish to own a site, then the email shared web hosting solution is what you require. You can set up e-mailbox accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting service for the domain. The email hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP servers.

- Video hosting: this service allows you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a specific video, or you can embed the video file in your web site that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of using this approach in lieu of uploading the video file in a web hosting account is that the video file brings about a particular amount of central processing unit load, so with a bunch of video files and a few hundred website visitors, you may have a problem with your shared web hosting reserves. Embedding the video will enable you to use as many videos as you desire without hassling about system quotas.

- Shared web hosting: this is the service that you need if you want to possess a web site. To a certain extent, it includes all of the abovementioned hosting groups since, along with your web sites, you can also host pics and files, you can have databases and email addresses, upload video files, and so on. At Alula Hosting you can view shared shared web hosting and dedicated server web hosting services that allow you to have all of the aforementioned solutions in one place. There may be limitations depending on the sort of shared web hosting service that you've selected - 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 account may be better or worse juxtaposed to the routine email/file/video/image hosting packages that are devised for particular content only.
