Here it is again, that IT buzzword that you hear like Agile, Scrum, or Blockchain. Yes, this time, it’s The Cloud. The cloud here is in the form of cloud web hosting. We’ve talked about it before, just check out this post. That, however, was an introduction. Today, we are going to talk about why today, in the new year of 2019, you need to have a cloud web host.
The first thing to address is what cloud web hosting is. Cloud web hosting works more efficiently than traditional methods because it pools computing power together through an array of servers instead of using a single one. The most efficient way I can present this is the below:
The Big Advantage
If you read our blog enough, you will know that here at Kiiff.com we especially love one feature: speed! Cloud web hosting will outclass any traditional website hosting configuration simply because of the potential power that can be utilized is much higher. With all of those CPUs running, your load times will drop like a boulder from a cliff.
No Single Point of Failure
When compared with a traditional configuration, there is no single point of failure in cloud web hosting. When there are 1000 servers distributing the load, it isn’t a huge deal if a couple are not available; the load will be distributed among the rest of them. This is one way of ensuring near 100% uptimes!
Now that there are 1000 servers, load balancing is very simple. When a resource demand is suddenly increased, there isn’t as hard of a hit to the performance of the site where the hike occurred, because the resources were distributed to accompany it.
Because many servers are hosting your website at the same time, you aren’t of course using all of it’s resources on just your website. This makes it very easy to allocate additional resources to your website without any service interruption.
With features and flexibility like this, it’s hard not to like cloud web hosting. Hopefully this article helps you in your decision on how to host your next website.
