The type of Webhosting
There are so many types on web hosting services. Although most of them are providing a space, but there are so many differences according to the use of the space.
Hosting services limited to the Web. Many large companies who are not internet service providers also need a computer permanently connected to the web so they can send email, files, etc. to other sites. They may also use the computer as a website host so they can provide details of their goods and services to anyone interested. Additionally these people may decide to place online orders.
Some specific types of hosting provided by web host service providers:
File hosting service, This hosting type is hosts only files, not web pages. File hosting service can be useful when we need to share something with the others, or put many files from harddisk to this online storage. This service also able to become the place for web development files, like java scripts files, css, and many more.
Image hosting service. This service is limited to hosts images only. We can display our photos or our drawing there. In some image hosting service, we must pay to use their service.
Blog hosting service. Web blog software (also called blogging software or blog ware) is software designed to simplify the creation and maintenance of web blogs. As specialized content management systems, web blog applications support the authoring, editing, and publishing of blog posts and comments, with special functions for image management, web syndication, and moderation of posts and comments. It’s divided into two kind, a server model and client model.
One-click hosting. One-click hosting generally describes web services that allow internet users to easily upload one or more files from their hard drives (or from a remote location) onto the one-click host’s server free of charge.
Most such services simply return a URL which can be given to other people, who can then fetch the file later on. As of 2005 these sites have drastically increased in popularity, and subsequently, many of the smaller, less efficient sites have failed. Many internet forums exist in order to share such links; this type of file sharing has, to a degree, taken over from P2P file sharing services
Pastebin Hosts text snippets. A pastebin is a web application which allows its users to upload snippets of text, usually samples of source code, for public viewing. It is very popular in IRC channels where pasting large amounts of text is considered bad etiquette. A vast number of pastebins exist on the Internet, suiting a number of different needs and provided features tailored towards the crowd they focus on most. A pastebin often has the capability to format and syntax highlighting the text for easier viewing. Throughout the years, the number of languages and formatting styles has grown quickly as the Pastebin user base has grown and their needs have fanned out. A well-known highlighting software package called GeSHi supports the most common pastebins
Shopping cart software. Shopping cart software is software used in e-commerce to assist people making purchases online. The software allows online shopping customers to accumulate a list of items for purchase, described metaphorically as “placing items in the shopping cart”. Upon checkout, the software typically calculates a total for the order, including shipping and handling (i.e. postage and packing) charges and the associated taxes, as applicable.
E-mail hosting service, E-mail hosting services usually offer premium e-mail at a cost as opposed to advertising supported free e-mail or free web mail. E-mail hosting services thus differ from typical end-user e-mail providers such as web mail sites. They cater mostly to demanding e-mail users and Small and Mid Size (SME) businesses, while larger enterprises usually run their own e-mail hosting service. E-mail hosting providers allow for premium e-mail services along with custom configurations and large number of accounts. In addition, hosting providers manage user’s own domain name, including any e-mail authentication scheme that the domain owner wishes to enforce in order to convey the meaning that using a specific domain name identifies and qualifies e-mail senders.
