Image Hosting vs Video Hosting
An image hosting is a service which allows individual users to upload the images to an Internet website. Then that image will be stored by image host onto its server and it will shows the individual user different types of code to allow others to view that image.
Why it is important
Talking about image hosting actually, the typically image hosting websites gives an upload interface. It is a form in which the uploader states the location of an image file on his local computer file system. After pressing a “Submit” button the file is uploaded to the image host’s server.
Some of image hosts allow the uploader to specify multiple files at once using this form which is a great advantage. It also provides the ability to upload one ZIP archive that contains multiple images. In addition to this some hosts allow FTP access, where files can be uploaded in one session using an FTP-capable browser or FTP software.
After this whole process, the image is hosted on the server. In other words we can say the image is available on the web now. The uploader can also define inline links to the hosted image, so that to embed it on other websites.
Video Hosting is a service by which individual can upload video content to share or place on a website. Users normally upload through hosting service websites and mobile/desktop applications.
User can upload any kind of video or anything from short video clips to full length movies. The video is then stored by video host on its server and show the individual different types of embed codes or links to allow others to view this video. The website that is mainly used as the video hosting website, is normally called the video sharing website.
Why it is important
A video hosting service let a person to upload a video to the servers and it is kept either indefinitely or for a stated period of time.
There are many advantages of video hosting , but its primary advantage is that the user does not have to maintain his or her own servers to share videos.
Having one’s own servers is normally not expensive, but it normally requires a monthly fee. And also if a lot of videos are uploaded or if the files are especially large in size and in quality of the video, video hosting can be costly if done without a hosting company because it would be supported by ads.
