While the ‘Cloud’ has forever changed how applications, storage and web hosting has worked over the last few years, what exactly the term is and how it works is still lost on many people. This blog tackles this misunderstood question – what is cloud hosting and how does it work?
What is ‘Cloud Hosting’?
In traditional web hosting, a website is supported by a single server. In ‘Cloud hosting’ on the other hand, a website is supported by hundreds of servers working together as one. This cluster of servers together is termed the ‘Cloud’. This set up makes hosting on the cloud more flexible than hosting on any other hosting model.
How Cloud Hosting works/ the Advantages of Cloud Hosting –
- If there is an outage in one server, another takes over, ensuring zero downtime
- Thus, this also ensures that a cloud hosting set up has a near unlimited ability to handle traffic spikes of any magnitude
- Customers visiting your website will face no issue and you will see no drop in your website visits/conversions, also contributing to the maintenance of a healthy search engine rank
- You pay only for the resources that you consume
- You can scale up on demand
Virtually, the processing power is unlimited as you can always add a new server and scale up- provides great flexibility and scalability, making it easy to upgrade or downgrade your hosting environment and accommodate for periods of higher or lower traffic.
All of this makes cloud hosting a powerful solution for large, high-traffic internet sites and applications that require the highest level of performance.
You may have already guessed that managing a cloud hosting solution is not a simple process. It takes the skills of an experienced Linux server administrator or IT professional, so it’s not a good solution for most small businesses or do-it-yourselfers. Before you opt for cloud hosting, be sure to weigh its pros and cons against your online needs, budget, and business goals.
