What is File Hosting?


A File Hosting Service, Online File storage service is an Internet hosting service which is specifically designed to host static content. Online Media Center also comes in this category. This type services deal with Static Content, typically large files which are not web pages. This services can be optimized for many users. There are some related services, Video sharing, virtual storage and remote back up.

File Hosting  used for following applications:

Personal file storage


Personal file storage services are aimed at private individuals, offering a sort of "network storage" for personal backup, file access, or file distribution. Users can upload their files and share them publicly or keep them password-protected.

Document-sharing services allow users to share and collaborate on document files. These services originally targeted files such as PDFs, word processor documents, and spreadsheets. However many remote file storage services are now aimed at allowing users to share and sychronize all types of files across all the devices they use.

File sync and sharing services


File syncing and sharing services are file hosting services which allow users to create special folders on each of their computers or mobile devices, which the service then synchronizes so that it appears to be the same folder regardless of which computer is used to view it. Files placed in this folder also are typically accessible through a website and mobile apps, and can be easily shared with other users for viewing or collaboration.

Such services have become popular via consumer products such as Dropbox and Google Drive.

Content Caching  


Content providers who potentially encounter bandwidth congestion issues may use services specialized in distributing cached or static content. It is the case for companies with a major Internet presence.

Pros and Cons File Hosting



1. What are the pros and cons of file sharing?


Again, file sharing is not itself illegal, as long as you share what is yours and what is not copyrighted by other people or by a company. Part of the answer that It depends on what you share. If, for an example, you like to share your photo album to your friends, it is legal. If you have a project to share that will allow your classmates, colleagues, or people with the same interest in working on your project, it is not illegal to share your work or source code. Most files that can be legally shared have licenses that detail what can be done and cannot be done.

The pros of file sharing is the ability to collaborate using collaboration tools such as e-mail, blogs, or any applications which allow a direct download from the person or computers hosting the files.

There are companies who benefit greatly for having the ability to share their files:

⇨ Software developers who want to share their files to testers- it allows them to get free feedback and receive bug or error reports.

⇨ Recording company and its registered distributors who allow the use of file sharing are giving their customers a preview of the songs they want to hear before buying. It benefits also the buyers of music because they don't have to purchase the whole CD or album. There is now an option to choose only the songs that you like to purchase.

⇨ People at work and school also benefits in sharing files. It allows their colleagues and classmates to work on their project at work or at school. An example is the people who are involved in Open Source projects.

⇨ Individuals also benefits in sharing their files via home networks or by sharing their personal files to their family or friends.

2. What about the cons of file sharing?


When you download files from people that you don't know or from the untrusted source, there is a risk of downloading viruses, Trojans and other types of malware. Some end-users are confident in illegally downloading files if an antivirus program has support to scan the connections and the files, using a P2P application. They don’t realize that their private information is at risk, in addition to facing the law if their ISP has determined that their customer is using the internet connection illegally.

If you will share your files by allowing the P2P applications to open your computer or a folder to other users in the P2P network, you are at risk to sharing your personal and sensitive information.

If you are using a computer at work to share or download files to untrusted source or people, you are putting the whole computers at work at risk. You might be leaking sensitive and private information that your boss will never share with his permission.
