    What is Cloud Hosting

    In a nutshell, cloud hosting (often also referred to as clustered hosting) is a step up from

    the shared hosting infrastructure that is commonly used today.

    By handling security, load balancing and server resources virtually you are no longer

    restricted to the limits of one physical piece of hardware. In basic terms, online operations

    are not limited to a single server, they have access to the processing power of a number of

    servers that are distributed in real time.

    In a physical environment, a web site (for instance) is limited to the resource constraints

    that is housed within the physical unit (RAM, processing power, bandwidth etc). The concept of

    a cloud infrastructure no longer has this limitation – you, as a customer, can purchase as

    much computing power as you need from a virtually inexhaustible supply. The nature of the

    infrastructure means that scaling up and down is seemless and thus spikes in traffic aren’t


    Load-balancing occurs at the software level and is dynamically load-balanced across a number

    of servers. Servers can be added or removed from the cluster with no impact or downtime on

    hosted applications meaning less disruption for customers. The cloud architecture has the

    ability to provide small and medium enterprises the stability and resilience of a web hosting

    architecture that a few years ago only huge corporate organization could obtain through huge

    IT expenditure.

    Maintenance cloud computing applications are easier to maintain, since they don't have to be installed on each user's computer. They are easier to support and to improve since the changes reach the clients instantly.

    Cloud hosting is based on the most innovative Cloud computing technologies that allow unlimited number of machines to act as one system. Other hosting solutions (shared or dedicated) depend on one machine only, while cloud hosting security is guaranteed by many servers. The cloud technology allows easy integration of extra resources, such as space or RAM and thus enable website growth.

    Cloud Hosting is popular now because of the following reasons:
    1. You pay for only the resources you need.
    2. It provides good scalability. You can easily increase or decrease resources without moving sites to other servers.
    3. Servers can be deployed instantly.
    4. It provides better uptime than other types of web hosting.
    5. Traffic spikes aren't a problem; the cloud can handle them.
    6. If the servers are in different datacenters, datacenter problems can be less of a concern.
    7. Different technologies can be used together that can't be used together without cloud hosting. For example, .php and .asp files can work on the same site, even in the same folder, drawing on technologies within the cloud.
    8. You don't need to install hardware or software. Instead, you connect with a cloud that has the hardware or software you need

    Re :

    There are many benefits to cloud hosting for businesses seeking reliable web hosting. For instance, it is a very cost-efficient hosting service. You will have optimized performance that is aligned for business and there are more available resources that will allow you to expand without incurring extra costs, overhead, and inventory. With cloud hosting, you will have the benefit of redundancy so you will have a great reduction in hardware inventory.

    While reading the forums around, just found few articles about Cloud hosting. I see that most of the people are thinking of it being more stable website hosting solutions with better uptime. However, I doubt, f there is someone here who has actually experienced this new booming technology?
    Came to know about one company that offers Cloud Hosting and the clients there are suffering with more outages than they have ever experienced in hosting industry.

    What is your experience with Cloud Hosting as a new Website Hosting Technology?

    Due to this reason, users will experience better performance and uptime guarantee. I think this is great technology for users of shared and reseller hosting packages also as it will offer 100% uptime guarantee.
