Why is Cloud Hosting often the Best Web Hosting Choice?
In today’s fast-paced business climate, companies big and small are looking to maximize efficiency as well as cut costs when it comes to web hosting. The good news is this is a realm of technology that continues to improve, and Cloud Hosting is currently the most advanced hosting method available.
While the word 'cloud’ has become common, there have been different technologies related to it at different times. What makes Cloud Hosting better than Traditional Hosting? We're here to break it down!
“Our clients benefit from the scalability of cloud hosting because it means we can provide a seamless web hosting service across multiple servers,” says Martin Woodhouse, Co-founder and Partner of All Simple. “That also ensures there is lots of redundancy in the system. These advantages result in close to 100% uptime which is ideally suited to your business if you rely on your websites for sales, enquiries and customer service.”
What Businesses Particularly Benefit from Cloud Hosting?
eCommerce businesses that rely on online sales or enquiries from their website, and companies with high website traffic and, therefore, cannot afford to have their website go down, should be using cloud web hosting.
What Is Cloud Hosting?
A cloud server, often called a ‘virtualized’ server or ‘virtual machine’ (VM), is a server that can pretty much be used in all the ways a physical server can be used. It is a fully-featured server, and the system around it involves several cloud servers sharing the physical hardware but with individual units being fully self-contained. Each server is allotted a specific level of resources such as disk space, RAM and CPU performance.
Why Is Cloud Hosting A Good Option?
The great thing about Cloud Hosting is that it is not dependent upon any single piece of hardware. If one component stops working, your whole web hosting system can crash and your website disappears from the internet.
Most traditional server providers attach your server to a piece of hardware. If this hardware happens to fail, the providers will either wait for it to be fixed and restarted, or require you to use backups to rebuild your server.
Cloud Servers avoid these issues by rebooting on new hardware anytime there's a hardware failure. This ensures that your website doesn’t go down and you don’t risk losing valuable business.
What are the main benefits of cloud web hosting?
The key advantage of cloud hosting is its ease of scalability; this gives the servers the flexibility to scale up quickly to deal with unexpected traffic surges, and also means the infrastructure can grow with your requirements in the long term as your business grows.
One of the unique features of cloud web hosting is its redundant nature. In the past if your server went down, your site was out of commission.
Cloud hosting uses a number of servers. If one server goes down, another one will pick up the slack. Your website and its databases and files will simply be delivered from another server in the cluster. This helps achieve close to 100% uptime.
All Simple’s cloud hosting plan setup is close to automatic. Once you have your logins, you can sign into your account and immediately begin to use the resources. Alternatively, we can help you make any necessary adjustments.
Cloud hosting offers better performance, because it ensures load balancing across multiple servers. The end result is less strain on any one server.
Your cloud hosting company can expand your processing power, available memory, or software needs in the blink of an eye and the press of a button. This is really useful if your upgrades and expansions are only for a specific high traffic time of year, such as Black Friday or Cyber Monday.
Cloud hosting can remove the need for you to buy, house and maintain your own hardware, which reduces capital expenditure. And the ease with which you can scale up or down means you don’t have to pay for unused capacity.
Better Business Continuity
Another cloud hosting advantage is that is makes disaster recovery much easier, especially if you're already using a multi-server hosting architecture.
Faster Data Access
Many eCommerce platforms use cloud-based content delivery networks (CDNs) for their product photos, reviews and demonstration videos. Cloud hosting is ideally suited to these CDNs with their resource-intensive data, like images, streaming video, sound, and other media content.
Greatly Improved Data Security
Modern cloud hosting services make keeping data safe a precise science.
