Benefits of Cloud Hosting

Shared Hosting

Cloud Sites

Cloud architecture is not very common with most hosting providers. Many providers simply use the same web server and keep on adding new websites until there is no room left for growth. Whenever there is excessive traffic on any one or more sites it puts a huge strain on the processor and memory capacity of a single computer. This results in having your website experience a slow response to crawlers and in some cases it may stop entirely. There are a lot of websites with seasonal traffic, such as during a special activity, a trade fair or when a new product is launched. These seasonal sites might be experiencing huge traffic rush at these times causing the shared web server to overwhelm and this might result in your site being offline at an inconvenient time. With cloud sites, your website can be conveniently set up across other server clusters. Our very efficient hosting infrastructure regularly monitors the capacity of the server clusters and adds to that as required.
Using the shared hosting setup can be quite risky as this means all your data is stored on one hard drive in one server. In case of a hard drive failure, your website might be offline for a few hours or even days until the repairs are made.

When you use cloud hosting, all your files and images of your website are stored on a number of hard drives and on various locations. The computer clusters are then able to respond to the visitors and your files are served efficiently. In an event that one server fails, the load can be quickly picked up without affecting the traffic.
Linux vs. Windows
Generally the providers of shared hosting specialize in either Linux or Windows. Even when some providers offer both options simultaneously you will have to make a careful decision while choosing the appropriate technology as this could be a long term decision and might not be easy to change later.

Cloud sites is a platform that provides technology support using both Linux (such as Apache and MySQL) and Windows (such as .NET and MS SQL). Every new site that is added there is an option to choose either of the two or an interesting combination of both. Cloud sites are also able to adapt to the technological advancements from Microsoft and Linux.
