- File hosting: a service delivered by particular providers, which permits you to share immense files. These could be disk images, films, audio files, archives, and so on. This solution is also known as file storage, and its sole designation is to share files, since it does not offer web site uploading. As soon as the files are uploaded, you will either receive a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to read a roster 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 file hosting plans are often supported by exhibiting ads beside the download links, while a timer forces you to wait for a given period of time to perceive them. A single file can be downloaded with restricted speed. If you get a paid file storage plan, there are no limits as to how many files you can upload/download instantly, and also there is no limit when it comes to the download speed or the file size.

These days, with the help of the cPanel web hosting companies, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more faddish "cloud website hosting". This is a completely distorted interpretation of the literal meaning of "cloud hosting". A real cloud website hosting platform would distribute the load between different bunches of web hosting servers in a cluster, which are devoted to attending various website hosting services (mail, storage space, statistics, DNS, databases, web hosting Control Panel, and so on.) So, the file hosting solution is merely a type of a storage space hosting service, not a cloud website hosting one. It's not even near.

- Image hosting: akin to file hosting; certain distributors offer a hosting service for pictures solely. This hosting type is suitable if you would like to share a vast number of images with friends or associates since the solution is typically free of cost. You will get a randomly generated 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 solution cannot be utilized for web sites.

- Email hosting: a solution dedicated to handling your mails. Some companies offer website hosting services for sites, but do not offer an email hosting service. If you would like to get an e-mail address with your domain name but do not want to own a web site, then the email website hosting service is what you require. You can open email address accounts and administer them, but there will be no hosting solution for the domain. The e-mail hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP servers.

- Video hosting: this solution allows you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a specific video file, or you can embed the video in your web page that is hosted somewhere else. The benefit of utilizing this method instead of uploading the video clip in a web hosting account is that the video file creates a particular amount of central processing unit load, so with a bunch of video clips and several hundred web page visitors, you may have trouble with your website hosting quotas. Embedding the video will allow you to administer as many videos as you would like without hassling about system reserves.

- Website hosting: this is the solution that you need if you desire to possess a website. To a certain degree, it incorporates all of the aforementioned hosting brands since, along with your web pages, you can also host images and files, you can have databases and e-mail aliases, upload video clips, etc. At Intrigue Hosting you can explore shared website hosting and dedicated web hosting plans that enable you to get all of the aforementioned solutions in one single place. There may be limitations depending on the type of website hosting service that you've opted for - a free hosting account, a paid shared web hosting account, a VPS web hosting or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your website hosting package may be better or worse compared with the normal e-mail/file/video/image hosting packages that are planned for particular web content only.
