What is Cloud Hosting?
Traditional web hosting houses a website on a physical server. On the other hand, “cloud hosting” uses multiple virtual (remote) servers for the same task.
More About Cloud Hosting
Cloud hosting is an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud delivery model. It is typically much more flexible and reliable than traditional hosting. When one cloud server is down, another can simply jump in to replace it until the issue with the faulty server is resolved.
This reliability makes it an excellent option for larger websites that expect traffic surges from time to time. Cloud hosting also allows users to pay for only what they need. It can easily accommodate growth since it uses a vast network of virtual resources. With traditional hosting, users must choose between “shared” and “private” servers. The options are “public” and “private” with cloud hosting.
