Are there any real benefits of cloud hosting? Is it really worth spending time and money on it and prefer it over traditional hosting options? What are the main differences between cloud hosting and traditional one?

Anthony Brooks

The main difference is technology. If you open this issue in more detail, then the system will protect cloud hosting by several orders of magnitude higher, although it does not provide complete protection. In addition, the login system is different. For example, to connect to regular hosting, you enter the admin password and get control, cloud hosting after entering directs you to the "gateway", and then to the cloud itself (of course, this happens almost automatically for you). In addition, cloud hosting has a standard system for automatically saving data (yes, there is such a thing in regular hosting, but not all of them). There are other differences, so before choosing, you should delve into this issue in detail, but I will say right away that if you need hosting for a regular site or online store, then choose regular hosting, and if you need documentation, then cloud hosting is better.


If you mean a dedicated server by regular hosting, then yes, the differences are significant. However, as compared to other types of hosting.
First of all, the main feature of cloud hosting is the lack of linking a separate site to a specific server - a big advantage. In other words, high security. Also, a distinctive feature is increased stability - thanks to a special cluster architecture, a breakdown of any component or a failure will not affect the operation of the client's site. Each user is assigned the resources assigned to him and no factors can influence this, although you will not be able to use more resources than you have reserved.

The difference between them is great. Traditional hosting involves storing information on a dedicated server (or part of it). That is, the provider allocates part of the machine's resources for your needs. Cloud hosting provides the same, but in addition, it gives you the opportunity to use more server capabilities (I'm not talking about computing power). In fact, the cloud = a powerful computer that can be used not only as a repository of articles, but also as a database for a corporation.

In my opinion, people need cloud hosting when they want to achieve a certain level of protection and encryption. This does not protect against cyberattacks - DDOS, however, it protects against excessively high ping and user response to hosting (data centers work in adjacent mode). Don't forget about data transfer speed - yes, the components also greatly affect the host, but much less than with regular hosting.


There are advantages. They are obvious. No need to spend your money on increasing your memory. It is better to store all data in the cloud.The data can be accessed from anywhere in the world.
