What is Cloud Hosting?

Cloud web hosting

Traditional web hosting hosts a website on a physical server. On the other hand, “cloud hosting” uses multiple virtual (remote) servers for the same task.

Cloud hosting is an infrastructure as a service (IaaS) model. It is much more flexible and reliable than traditional web hosting. If one Cloud server is down, another can simply take over until the failed server is up and running again.

This reliability makes it an excellent option for major websites experiencing periodic traffic peaks. Cloud hosting also makes it easy to adapt to the growth of a website since it uses several virtual network resources.

With traditional web hosting, users must choose between shared and dedicated servers. In the case of cloud hosting, we are talking about public and private servers.
