Cloud web hosting is a new technology that is becoming more widespread every day. The general premise behind cloud web hosting is fairly simple, yet ingenious: cloud web hosting is just like normal web hosting, except that it uses several clustered servers connected to the internet to do the job. What this means is that, essentially, one’s website uses the virtual resource output of more than one server to accommodate the hosting of the site.
Instead of hosting the information and data in one’s office space, it is hosted virtually, and accessible via the internet. This way, the burden of web hosting is spread out and balanced, antivirus, anti-malware, and system security are taken care of for the client, and instead of physically, hardware resources are available virtually, and are available whenever the client may need access to them. So, in short, the cluster of servers becomes the cloud.
Cloud web hosting is a useful option for many websites which have grown so large in their user base and require such a large amount of information that their existing hosting provider can’t provide all of the resources that are required to maintain the website. For example, if a web site becomes very popular it may place a large burden on the shared server. In this case, the client would need to find another solution. Often, this can be obtained by the use of a cloud server, which also is much more easy to use and access than the general server type. With all of the benefits outlined above, it is very clear and easy to understand why cloud serving has seen such a boon of popularity recently. Eventually, all servers may become cloud servers, due to the efficiency that it provides to users, clients, and web hosts.
