Cloud hosting instead of traditional hosting

Suppose I have a certain web site implemented on ASP.NET . The site is a classic average catalog with the number of elements in it about ≈ 15000-18000. There are functions such as search, filtering by parameters, registration / authorization, admin panel, user's personal account, adding/editing your catalog items.
Previously, I would not have thought about using cloud hosting. Now cloud technologies, apparently, have become mainstream and are already heard by many.

And yet, does it make sense to host a web site not on the traditional web hosting, but on the cloud hosting?
What are the worthwhile advantages of using cloud web hosting in the medium and long term for this kind of sites?

What for?

  Regular web hosting gives you fixed resources for a fixed fee.
  Cloud - floating resources for a floating fee.
  There is also an intermediate option that calls itself cloud, but works like the first one.

The most reasonable argument is a gradual increase in the load.
You pay more and more as your system grows.
It is advisable if we are talking about projects with web hosting for $KK per month.

Your tasks (if the engine is written correctly) are perfectly solved by hosting for $10 per month. Not cloudy.


If you have adequate experience using regular hosting with this project, then I doubt that you will be better off "on the cloud". As far as I know, for a project like yours, VPS hosting with a moderate fee is best. The cloud may be needed only in case of a significant expansion of the audience, i.e. users, in general - the load on the server. If this is not expected in the near future, then, as they say, why pay more? ::)

Cloud hosting is chosen in three cases:
1) when you think about scaling the project (entering a new market and traffic);
2) when you want to get the best response from customers;
3) when you want to secure your project.
Of course, cloud hosting is also different in internal interaction, but the basic principles (except for the panel) do not differ from conventional hosting. I would say that if you want to expand your base and increase traffic, then you should consider moving to cloud hosting.

The most modern technologies are used for cloud hosting. This allows you to modify and integrate your programs according to the requirements and preferences of your company. This may include server updates, the latest software versions, and an increase in the computing power of the computer. Traditional hosting does not allow automatic configuration or updating.

A time-tested way to host websites is cloud hosting. It is becoming more and more popular every day because it offers great features and functions at a great price.
Be sure to purchase a cloud hosting plan from a reliable provider with experience in providing secure, fast and reliable hosting services when you want to buy a cloud hosting plan. This way you can focus on your website instead of worrying about web hosting issues.


On a regular hosting, your site will be hosted on the same server as thousands of others. All of them share RAM and resources of the same processor.
The difference from conventional hosting is that solutions are deployed not on one, but on several servers at once. The site is hosted on a network of connected virtual and physical cloud servers, which guarantees flexibility and scalability.
