Why Use Cloud Hosting? Cloud hosting is a unique hosting solution that allows for scalable resource use, and flexible pricing, all while getting very high levels of server performance. Essentially cloud hosting is the equivalent of having a very large dedicated server at your disposal. Users who are just starting their first websites probably won’t get that much value out of cloud hosting, something like a simple and cheap shared hosting package will be enough. But, if you’ve been looking to upgrade your hosting to a VPS, or dedicated host, then cloud hosting is definitely worth thinking about. Cloud hosting will give you near unlimited access to server resources that you can scale up or down on demand. Since you aren’t tied to a specific physical server you can scale your resources as your traffic levels rise. Plus, you’ll have access to a very high-performance server environment that rivals VPS and dedicated servers.
Below we dive into what public cloud hosting actually is, along with its advantages and disadvantages, so you can make the best decision for your business.
