Build your own cloud infrastructure in no time
Cloud hosting has changed the hosting industry for the better, allowing for increasing reliability and resilience for clients. Signing up for a simple web hosting package would usually buy you a defined block of resources on a single server: register your domain name , then choose this much web space, that much bandwidth, maybe a set amount of RAM or CPU cores. While this works well for many websites, having fixed resources can be a problem for larger projects. There's generally no way to temporarily allocate extra RAM or bandwidth if you experience an increase in traffic, and even a simple plan upgrade might require your website to go offline for a while. Cloud hosting plans look much like virtual private server VPS web hosting products, where you'll initially pay for a set amount of web space, RAM, CPU time and bandwidth. But these resources are spread across multiple devices instead of just one, and changing your plan later — adding another gig of RAM, for instance — is generally as easy as dragging a slider, with the extra power coming online within moments. There are also additional options for small business web hosting , such as environmentally-friendly green web hosting. Additionally, cloud hosting is scalable and can provide for a good alternative to needing a dedicated server with colocation provider , and there are options for managed web hosting services. You can use cloud hosting for everything, from just hosting your emails , to replacing your business server. However, if you want a hands-on experience expect the virtual servers to be running Linux , not Windows.

A web hosting plan resides at a remote location, accessible via the internet: web browser, Secure Shell SSH , etc. Web and cloud server hosting are sometimes used interchangeably. This is because web hosting plans are intended for hosting primarily websites and applications. The advantages to cloud hosting are easy to digest. The tricky part is choosing the correct hosting method for your needs — shared, dedicated, cloud, or virtual private server VPS hosting. The web hosting provider maintains the hardware, virtualization, and base OS installation. You maintain everything else:.
