Cloud hosting is a type of web hosting which uses multiple different servers to balance the load and maximize uptime.
Cloud hosting spreads the data across a number of different machines, different servers in different places that are connected together. You manage your data through a “virtual machine” that accesses all the different servers across the “cloud”.
Cloud hosting has become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason. It’s a flexible, scalable, and high performing hosting solution that offers your business a unique set of features.
The Perfect Environment for Success
High Uptime and Availability
Cloud hosting has high uptime built into its structure. Since your site will be virtual using the resources of multiple servers, you can simply be transferred to another server if one goes offline or is experiencing technical issues.
Redundant Server Environment
With most types of hosting your site lives on a single server. When your hosting is redundant, a site backup will take over your existing site within seconds. However, not all redundancy is created equal. With cloud hosting, you will have a concurrent live version of your website that your host can load immediately.
