The best cloud hosting platforms can put your website on Cloud 9… here are the 9 ways they make that happen.
Firstly, lets start off by briefly explaining the term cloud hosting. If you have been looking into hosting your website or checking who is hosting a website, its likely you would’ve come across the term. The way it works is instead of hosting your website on a single, physical server it allows your site to be hosted by multiple, interlinked servers located across the world. These servers only exist in a virtual setting, hence the word “cloud”.
Now, not only do you now have far greater potential by using multiple machines but now you have access to the plethora of services these machines can offer & this is where is starts to get powerful.
Hosting in the cloud allows you to take advantage of the infinite resources available to you. Simply put, no matter how many sites or how much traffic, we can host you in the cloud and as you get bigger, your plan grows with you.
Utilising the performance of multiple servers across the world means we can do something super-clever, we allow your users to access your website content on servers located closer to them. Limiting the physical, geographical space between your website visitors & where your content is hosted increases loading time, overall website performance & thus your seo traffic.
With cloud hosting, you don’t need to raise the capital needed for traditional infrastructure development. These huge costs would only allow a few big players into the market, thankfully we have cloud hosting & that is responsible for allowing anyone, anywhere to host a website for little initial costs.
Traditionally on public cloud hosting this is a disadvantage. We are a private cloud, meaning we back-up your site regularly. All of our plans come with daily backups. We store the last 30 days, typically, which we can use for disaster recovery purposes. Though our system is extremely stable and will never cause you any problems, sometimes you’re editing some files and break something. These things happen, and when they do, you’ll want a backup available; We’ve got you covered.
Again, security has always been a concern on public cloud hosting. On our private server you have nothing to worry about. We are partnered with SiteLock to insure all websites hosted with us have access to secure and encrypted solutions, backup recovery, firewalls, identity management and data isolation and storage segregation.
6. Increased Uptime
Your websites performance is never affected as there is never one single point of failure. If one server goes down, another takes it place. This cycle is endless & your website will never be down.
Old school hosting is tied to a physical location, you could travel but it will severely affect your website’s loading speed & overall performance. The use of our content delivery network means that no matter where you are, or where you visitors are, website performance is never affected. Meaning you can travel when & where you please while running your website(s).
