Cloud Web Hosting Explained
“Lately, almost every web hosting site I visit, claim to be offering cloud hosting services but when I look for their cloud hosting definition, I find no clear definition of it”. That was the comment I heard from one of the guys having coffee in Starbucks.
And because we have been offering cloud web hosting solutions for a while now, I decided to write an article in our blog explaining what cloud hosting actually means and what are the benefits of using it.
But first, let me start by defining what Shared Hosting is.
What Is Shared Hosting?
Shared web hosting service refers to a web hosting service where multiple websites are hosted on one server sharing the same resources with other users; such as CPU, memory, disk space, storage, bandwidth, databases, etc.
This type of hosting is the most popular hosting solution offered by most hosting companies around the globe, if not all, and it is the most inexpensive available nowadays.
But one of the problems in using a shared hosting solution is that, apart from sharing the same resources on one server with other users, the servers running shared hosting accounts are almost always fully loaded. And the other problem is that if one website overloads the server, all users hosting their sites on that server will suffer from low speed, limited disk space, memory issues, and/or downtime.
What Is Cloud Hosting?
Cloud hosting is based on a hosting solution where websites are hosted on a cluster of servers, instead of having it hosted on just one server. It is the most innovative cloud computing technology, which allows numerous machines, often pulled from different data centers in different locations, to work in synchrony as one entity.
So even though there is an aspect of shared resources, in case of an issue, the servers are able to fully isolate the problems from other users and actions on the server that may affect the functionality of your site. On top of that, your site can always be migrated to another server, avoiding in this way, a prolonged downtime.
Here at EagleProWeb, we have done it once again.
First when we took the decision to opt for a different Control Panel – the Hepsia Control Panel, bringing to you a modern hosting approach so that you can discover the functionalities of one of the most reliable cloud web hosting solutions available on the market today.
Each and every one of the plans we offer, grant you access to our amazing SSD-operated servers. You’ll be able to enhance your web sites making use of the site acceleration tools included in our custom-made Control Panel.
And as far as data protection goes, we make use of ZFS-powered storage (protection against data corruption, support for high storage capacities, efficient data compression, etc.), and ModSecurity firewall (providing a rule configuration language known as ‘SecRules’ for real-time monitoring, logging, and filtering of Hypertext Transfer Protocol communications based on user-defined rules).
So now that you know the difference between the two, we leave it in your hands to make an informed decision, focusing not only on your likes but also on what can best improve your business growth.
