What is cloud hosting?
We will not elaborate on explaining the reason for launching the name “cloud” on this hosting service, but in short, in cloud hosting, your site data is hosted on more than one hosting server and not just one server as it happens in other types of hosting services, whether shared hosting, or VPS, or Full servers.
This is the reason for this name, where your site data and files are hosted on more than one device and in more than one place around the world, and all these devices are connected to each other, forming a network or “cloud”.
Cloud Web Hosting Features
There are many features of cloud hosting that make it better than regular shared hosting, including …
High speed and high performance
The advantage of cloud hosting service is that it is a fairly recent hosting service that is developed from shared hosting, and therefore one server does not host a large number of sites on its own, such as shared hosting that hosts many and many sites on the same server, which negatively affects the performance of hosted sites.
Instead, the servers are linked to each other to turn into what resembles a large server with all server resources, and thus sites share the resources of all servers in common instead of just one server.
Monitor resource consumption
You can easily monitor your account’s consumption of hosting resources such as processor, RAM and storage space from within the control panel.
This gives you the ability to choose when you need to add resources to your account or upgrade the account according to your usage and also gives you a look at which resources your site is using the most.
This is due to the hosting of the site on more than one server, any problem in one of the servers will not affect the site because the other server will perform the task automatically and therefore there will be no stopping the site permanently, God willing.
That is why downtime is minimal in cloud hosting.
The level of security of your site in cloud hosting is much higher compared to shared hosting, because in the event that your site hangs or crashes, there is another copy of the site located on another server that will run automatically instead of that stopped.
You can add more hosting resources such as processor or RAM capacity from the hosting control panel easily and at any time when you need it.
In addition to the many other additional features that each hosting company provides to its customers who use Cloud Hosting, which differ from one company to another.
Who needs cloud hosting?
Now comes the most important question: Do you really need to buy cloud hosting? The only one who will be able to answer this question is you in choosing the hosting depends on the needs of your site and your budget as well.
If your site has a large number of visitors and the shared hosting no longer meets the needs of your site, then this is the right time to buy a cloud hosting or VPS server, if you are able to bear some additional costs in exchange for good service and a high level of performance.
