The cloud hosting environment is revolutionizing the way website owners expand their operations and pay for hosting services. The term “cloud” refers to a network of servers that is used to provide supreme redundancy and task allocation, in order to ensure continual high performance for every website on the network. In other words, unlike conventional hosting plans which either assign a server to a single webmaster (dedicated hosting), or assign a server to a large group of webmasters (shared or VPS hosting), cloud hosting assigns an entire network of web server to every webmaster simultaneously. Of course, there is much more to the cloud hosting environment that makes it such a revolutionary hosting type.
Unique Load-Balancing Technology
When a visitor arrives at one of your sites their request is handled by a primary server, which then determines which server on the network would currently be most suitable for performing the requested task. This unique load-balancing technology allows you to continuously expand the size of your sites and your daily traffic levels without having to worry about exceeding limitations. These advantages would make it seem obvious that the cloud hosting environment is far more beneficial than any other on the market, however many webmasters are afraid of the uncertainty that cloud hosting provides in terms of billing and hosting capabilities, even though this “uncertainty” is the main advantage.
Are You Uncertain about Disk Space, Bandwidth, and Software Requirements?
If you are not sure which type of hosting plan would be most suitable for your planned online endeavors, but your intentions are to create a network of successful sites, cloud hosting would be perfect for your cause. Instead of applying strict limitations on the amount of bandwidth and disk space that can be consumed each month, cloud hosting gives you unlimited expandability instantly, by allowing you to access the entire network of cloud servers at any given time if needed. In addition, if you are unsure about the type of server you need (Windows or Linux), you’ll be pleased to learn that most cloud networks include servers that have several types of operating systems installed, so you’ll be able to accommodate the needs of all of your sites, regardless of software compatibility requirements. So how much does a service like this cost?
Are You Uncertain about Your Budget?
If you’re not sure about the amount of money that you are able to spend each month in order to maintain profitability in your planned endeavor, cloud hosting can solve this problem as well by providing a unique pay per usage billing structure. In other words, customers are billed at the end of each cycle based on the amount of bandwidth and disk space consumed during that month, and each gigabyte of bandwidth and disk space carries a set price. This “pay-as-you-go” billing structure, combined with the unique load-balancing technology, allows you to expand instantly without ever paying for more or less than is needed.
