You might be thinking of contacting a web service provider soon to inquire about web hosting. You want to build your own website for your business and you’ve learned that in order to give it existence on the internet, you need to get a good web hosting service.

Both dedicated hosting and shared hosting can be good for your business. You need to understand what they are so you can decide which among them you will choose for your business. Do not be in a hurry when choosing the right service for you. Each of them has their own features your final choice will depend on the needs of your business.

Which among them you will choose? Take a look at your business and examine its capacities on paying for a hosting service. Moreover, consider what your goals are. If you have plans to become widely known in the World Wide Web, you will need a website with more helpful features. Take your time in making your decision. Try to understand first how the two works and how they can help your business grow. Below are some of the tips that you should understand about dedicated and shared hosting.

Dedicated Web Hosting

Big businesses usually prefer this service because it is very efficient. This is dedicated to your business and you will not share the server with anyone; for this reason, you’ll have full control of your website. You can upload as many files as you can and you have the freedom to install all the applications that you want. In line with this, you will also be responsible for everything, including the maintenance. In dedicated web hosting, you will provide yourself with your own equipment while on the other hand; your web host will provide you with backups.

This is the recommended service for websites who are targeting huge traffic. No matter how big the traffic you’ll generate, your site will be able to handle it and its response will be faster. Your security is guaranteed; furthermore, you will seldom experience hassles. Expect this service to cost higher compared to Shared Web Hosting.

Shared Web Hosting

This is otherwise known as virtual hosting, which means you do not own the server; a portion of it will only be shared to you and the other portions will be shared to other users. In shared web hosting plan, your website will have a bandwidth limit. This will be similar to leasing a portion of the lot that someone else owns. Your web host will handle everything for you. You will not have full control of it; however, you can manage your web content development.

Because numerous websites, including yours, share one server which is managed by an individual or a company, you will likely experience the following drawbacks:

  • Reduced level of security
  • Longer response time
  • Limited resources
  • Non-authority to install programs

In spite of the cons of a shared hosting, it is still the most popular hosting service, particularly among small and medium size businesses. It is because it’s more affordable and the features can sometimes be sufficient to their needs.

Whether you’re business is doing well or not, putting up your own website will bring in lots of advantages to whatever trade you have, especially if you can manage to make your website popular.

Since the internet became an inclination among people with various ages, users from different parts of the world usually search for what they need on the World Wide Web. Not only that; with the advent of e-commerce, purchases can now be done online. Most potential customers prefer this method nowadays instead of visiting physical stores.

Having a website is beneficial to your business. It can produce more customers for you. It will be easier for potential clients to find you and learn about your existence.

To be able to bring your business to the internet, you should be able to get the service of a reputable web hosting company. You don’t really need to be an expert to get your site running on the net. You only need to get in touch with the right people who will get things done for you.

Majority of small to medium sized businesses use managed hosting. This type of service allows the company you’d deal with to take care of your website, as they will be managing your servers to protect your files. All the things that you need to keep your business existing on the net, which includes monitoring, maintenance and necessary upgrades, will be handled by them.

Managed hosting is categorized into 2: the Dedicated Server and Virtual Private Server (VPS). Both of them can meet the needs of your business; but between the two, the dedicated server is more expensive and it is advisable for big companies. It is a hosting service wherein your web host provides you with a server dedicated only to your site. You have full control of its administration. Because you won’t share the server with anyone, you can expect to get faster response from it. Your website can also accommodate a huge amount of traffic, no matter how big it is.

In VPS, the physical server will have partitions called virtual units. Each of them will be allowed to run on this physical server. These units can be booted independently because they can run by themselves in their own machines.

Web hosting companies may have claims about themselves but it is imperative for you to find out if they can really give you quality service; for this reason, you should not hesitate to ask them questions. At least, you’ll be able to evaluate if they are the right company for you.

Some web hosting ads may appear to be attractive but you should not just jump for the cheapest service. Instead, scrutinize each of the companies you’re interested to hire before you come up with a decision. Don’t get easily attracted by hypes. Take a look at the performance of the web host service, particularly the uptime, bandwidth, disk space and technical support. You should avoid falling into the hands of a bad web hosting company.

A major advantage as to why cloud hosting is ideal for any website owner is its cost effective nature. Being an interconnection or infrastructure of multiple servers one just needs to be connected to any server in that cloud to be able to function. In the traditional web hosting you would have to purchase hardware and do installation. This brings the set up cost down and also maintains a low rate of maintenance cost.

The storage capacity of interconnected cloud host servers and the network bandwidth is definitely high which increases the capabilities of the cloud servers. You can therefore enjoy more space and speed.  This also means that cloud hosting is ideal for any website that wishes to enjoy advanced internet features.  With its huge space capacity, one can renovate their website without having to move it to dedicated servers which off course is a cumbersome job and requires lots of time. Due to its high scale abilities, upgrading websites is made easy when a website is hosted under cloud hosting. While a sudden surge would cause servers to crush in normal web hosting, cloud hosting mitigates such risks.

It is also common for websites under the conventional web hosting methods to have a lot of down time. This is a rare occurrence to websites hosted under cloud hosting. This translates to more traffic as constant and uninterrupted uptime encourages more visits and sustains the current visitors. The traffic of such a site is therefore guaranteed to increase and grow tremendously. The more the traffic the higher the website’s rank.  What does a website owner need more than increased traffic and rankings? Essentially cloud hosting is a sure way of ensuring that your websites achieves its intended purpose.

When you use cloud hosting for your website you are bound to benefit from various features that would not have otherwise been available with the conventional hosting methods. One of the major abilities you can draw from cloud hosting is that you can use multiple applications together. The fact that servers are virtual also means you can have access to them anytime anywhere.

Multiple servers also enable balancing of loads. When there is too much activity or heavy information, the virtual servers are able to balance the activity among themselves to sustain smooth functioning of the website. The same also applies to data which can easily be shared in cloud hosting. The virtual nature of servers means that the user is not restricted to the size of the hardware e.g. memory and hard disk space.

Cloud hosting couldn’t have come at a better time, seeing that most businesses in the world are now going digital. The world of virtual communication and business processing is rapidly opening up hence challenges like speed and space which is common with the traditional web hosting methods can be countered with cloud hosting. With such capabilities, website owners can maximize on the potential of their websites without any hindrances.

For a website owner venturing into cloud hosting for the first time, getting up to speed with the World Wide Web complexities may take a considerable amount of time. Learning the ropes of virtual hosting can be a very intricate as you need to understand how it all works first. Either way to be able to get the best in the business you will definitely need to have some knowledge of how these applications work. However there are some pointers that can help you to identify the most suitable cloud hosts.

Website hosts vary in kind. While some will give you the best service you may find yourself working with a very disorganized or unprofessional one. For instance most web host companies including cloud hosting have multiple servers. You may be out of luck and your site ends up being hosted in a server that is full of bugs or one that is awfully slow. There is also the possibility of your web host getting blacklisted as a result of spammers. The host you choose might also be a constant victim of hacking. Unfortunately you rarely get to know of such problems until later hence you need to do lots of research on your own.

The first step in looking for an ideal cloud host is to make a list of your requirements as far as hosting is concerned. If you are trying cloud hosting for the first time, you need to know the reasons for your change of hosting methods. For someone who is moving from one cloud host to another you need to be aware of what services or features your new hosts provides that your traditional one does not.

With a list of what you are looking for at hand, get online and start digging for cloud hosting companies. You are definitely bound to find hundreds of them here. This is because the internet happens to the biggest and most reliable source of web hosting companies. There are directories dedicated for web hosts only this helps to narrow your search down. Limit your search to cloud hosts that suit your needs as opposed conducting a general search.

There are also sites that have lists of web hosts. The best sites are the ones that give reviews of the performance of cloud hosts. Make a point of comparing different providers and reading their reviews. This helps a lot in making an informed choice. Chances are that what you read from the testimonials of other users may not be what you actually get. You should therefore avoid making decisions entirely based on reviews as they may be conjured to be appealing to potential customers. You can avoid this by actually making contact with the providers themselves. A telephone conversation is the most ideal as you can get answers instantly and also get things clarified. You can also get more detailed information since you can ask as many questions a you can.

When you get the ideal cloud host make sure that you get a money back guarantee that lasts for 30 days at least. Most reliable hosts will offer this, while unreliable ones don’t. Once your site is up and running sign up for free website monitoring service from Hyperspin. They will alert you anytime your website goes offline. The alerts normally come as email or SMS.

What is Cloud Hosting?

Web hosting has always been an integral part of the internet community.  Web host servers are the platforms on which all websites operate on.  To be a host all that one requires is to have is a reliable computer that can act as a server. By reliable we mean the memory should be large in capacity and the speed should be fast.

However the demand of web hosting has been growing rapidly forcing out new innovations. The most recent being cloud hosting.  This method of web hosting takes a different approach from the traditional web hosting we have been using.  Cloud hosting involves having one web site hosted by multiple servers.   The idea of cloud hosting is based on the cloud computing technology where web based processes are shared and done virtually. This allows information and software to be shared by multiple users virtually.

This new method of web hosting is slowly becoming popular as it suits the needs of most websites. This can be explained by the fact that most websites owners are looking for a web host that can support high level of interaction among browsers and also between the browser and website itself. Cloud hosting is also the ideal host for modern day websites that have complex features.

The basis of cloud hosting is its ability to have virtual applications. This means that its components are not tangible from files to servers. Cloud hosting servers are created in the virtual world from where they are accessed and operated from. However the applications used in normal web hosting are still applied in cloud hosting.  As far as operations are concerned cloud hosting does not require any hardware as its functions are carried out virtually from moving files to website updating or enhancements and creation of new servers.

Cloud hosting can be said to host websites in the virtual world as the website files are saved in intangible folders and its applications are operated from the virtual world otherwise called cloud servers. One component that stands out from cloud hosting is that you can create as many servers as you want in the virtual world to suit your purposes. This can be for temporary or long term reasons. For instance in traditional webhosting, while working on the website for repair or enhancements files are usually moved to another server that has to in existence. On the other hand in cloud hosting you can do the same without having the extra server. You can create one to host the site temporarily as you work on the main server, once you are done you can get rid of it.

This is just one of the many flexible options that cloud hosting brings into the internet business. Being able to create and get rid of a server in such an easy way simply makes it one the best web hosting technologies ever invented.  With cloud hosting website owners, companies and individuals in the internet business have no excuse for not providing the internet industry with cheaper internet services and products.

Reliability of Cloud Hosting

Being an innovation that has been invented to overcome challenges that are experienced in the internet world, cloud hosting is off course designed to be reliable for its users. The reliability of this technology is guaranteed as most of its operations are done virtually, hence you can count on it to stay intact when there is immense traffic or overload.

One of the main advantages of cloud hosting is that down time is never an issue. Its virtual nature makes it uninterruptible hence chances of going offline as a result of physical errors are eliminated. With cloud hosting, website owners and browsers can be assured of reliable internet connection infrastructure. This translates to more browsing time which consequently leads to more time online. This is a plus for website owners who can be assured that browsers stay longer on their sites due to seamless website functionality.

There have also been issues of website owners getting raw deals from their web hosts. Traditional hosting is known to have multiple problems, if its not the speed, it’s the limited memory or worse still prolonged down time sessions. Irrespective of this, website owners have to pay a fixed fee. Cloud hosting is cost effective as you only pay for what you use. The website owner is only required to pay for the storage space his or her files occupy and for the outgoing bandwidth. Inflated fees are therefore not a common feature as long as cloud hosting and website hosting fees are concerned. This is because your files are also stored virtually in what is known as cloud files which makes space even cheaper.

When your files get stored in the virtual memory they also get automatically backed up, you therefore don’t risk loosing data. Cloud hosting also gives you a lot of opportunities to enhance and improve your website. This is because it has multiple virtual servers. This enables you to access the files from anywhere as opposed to being restricted to one main server. With conventional web hosting one would have to have access the server physically. This means that if there was a problem while the admin is away, you would have to wait until he or she comes to resolve the issue. In a cloud hosted website the admin would access the server from wherever he is and solve it without having to physically be at the main server . This enhances reliability in that any problem can be solved promptly as compared to other web hosting methods where it would take some time to get a problem fixed.

Paying by the hour makes it cheap and also possible to spin up another cloud server whenever need arises. One of the reasons that may require an extra cloud server is; when you need to add another server to boost performance or test the system. A plus in this feature is that you can get rid of the extra server you have created as soon as its purpose is finished. In other words you can create another cloud server for a couple of minutes use and get rid of it as soon as you are done.

The above mentioned features make cloud hosting more reliable than any other type of web hosting. It guarantees the user quality and affordable service.

Pros and Cons of Cloud Hosting

Cloud hosting may be the newest and one of the best web hosting methods of our time. However as anything else it has its flaws and merits as well. What makes cloud hosting stand out from other web hosting methods also happens to be its biggest advantage. It  makes it possible to charge the user on a consumption basis. This way you only get to pay for what you use, in terms of space, memory and bandwidth.

There is also conservation of energy and resources in that the system is programmed to consume only the resources it needs. E.g. Unused hard disk space or memory can be saved and used for other purposes. This also means that website owners can utilize the space saved to increase their database or enhance website performance.

Cloud hosting does not have a limit as to the number of websites that it can host. This therefore makes it ideal for websites belonging to big organizations which may require lots of space to accommodate their large database and also emails accounts for users. This would be hard for other methods as they may not be able to accommodate all the needs of a big website such as a government department website and still keep the costs low.

Security is always an area of concern as far as information technology is concerned. The internet involves sharing of information in various forms such as audio, video images and text. This information may be private in some cases hence it needs to be protected. A cloud hosting shortcoming is that its servers can be accessed by a larger number of people as long as they have privileges. You therefore have less power to control who gets access to your information. Website owners should therefore establish the administrators who will have access to their information and have proper guidelines as far as privacy is concerned. This is advisable so as to have someone answerable incase of a breech in security.

While cloud hosting is composed of virtual servers they have to be created from a physical server. The server that hosts your site can be controlled from anywhere. However it may be an issue as the distance from the server to the targeted browsers should be within proximity to the browsers. This is because distance is bound to affect the connection speed. This can be a drawback to the website as site speed is a factor considered by Google in assigning website ranks. Having virtual servers in different places is also complex due to the difference in time zones which may hamper communication.

Every technology innovation usually has a user that it best suits. People should therefore not rush to acquire technology items or services just because they are new. This is because they may not suit your needs at all. However what you can do is first establish how the new technology can impact the services you offer or the lives of your customers. Generally its acquisition is supposed to make things easier and also cost effective.

Cloud hosting is no exception, it is only suited for certain types of users. You may want to first consider which features your current host does not provide and would be available with cloud hosting. If you do not know exactly what you want to use cloud hosting for, you may end up either applying it for wrong reasons or under utilizing it which beats the logic of acquiring it in the first place.

One type of web applications that cloud hosting can suit is a blog. This is because blogs have spikes that come as a result of the immense traffic coming their way. These spikes come about when the blog contains content that makes it to the Digg front page. Blogs also have peak times when they go viral. This means that the traffic fluctuates hence the space, speed and memory usage also fluctuates. Cloud hosting suits this application best as its scaling ability accommodates the spikes without being overcharged for the extra time.

Website owners who speculate rapid growth of their website in terms of traffic and also applications are can also acquire cloud hosting. This is because it accommodates increase in traffic or website enhancement at a cheaper cost.

Another type of application where cloud hosting applies best are websites with seasonal or cynical traffic. These website get heavy traffic during certain times of the year as a result of dealing with services that are related to certain events that take place at a particular time of the year. For instance websites that specialize on gifts for Christmas, valentines and Thanksgiving get high traffic during these occasions. Cloud hosting enables such website owners to handle that traffic without necessarily having to pay for bandwidth or space they have not used during the low peak times of the year.

Cloud hosting also suits website developers who fancy focusing on enhancing websites for better performance and don’t have time to keep contacting the web host for space, memory and speed to be increased. Cloud hosting offers such a developer the luxury of making any enhancements to his website without having to book or request or even pay for it as this will be billed according to consumption.

Sellers of web hosting services and website designers are also best suited for cloud hosting. This type of hosting enables hosts to have multiple websites in one cloud server. Cloud hosting enables the host to scale up or down depending on the customers he has. This means that even newbies don’t have to come up with lots of start up cash as they only need to pay for the websites they are hosting initially.

Generally websites with lots of traffic and those whose traffic fluctuates are the most ideal beneficiaries of cloud hosting.

Difference between Cloud and shared/dedicated/VPS hosting

Cloud hosting may be a totally new way of hosting websites but its foundations are the same as the ones used for traditional web hosting methods. By foundations we mean the technical aspects used to come up with cloud hosting are the same as the ones used for dedicated and shared server hosting.

While all web hosting methods are based on the same framework, they are all unique in their own ways. However to understand their differences one must have a good idea of how they function.

In the shared server hosting, there is one main server. The server admin allocates space to multiple users of the servers from his hard disk in the main server. The website owner is then expected to pay a regular fee to keep using that space. The period of payment varies with hosts, it could be annual or on a monthly basis. This is most ideal users for this type of hosting is private individuals who own websites. As the name suggests everything from space to memory is shared among its users.

The dedicated server, which is one of the two traditional methods of web hosting, is where one person has the whole server to himself. This includes the hard disk space and memory. Essentially everything in the server is dedicated to only one website or user. This type of hosting suits websites with complex applications and need more space, power and also bandwidth.

There is also another new method of web hosting known as Virtual Private Server (VPS), this is a mixture of both the dedicated and shared server hosting. It has one physical server which is then split into other virtual servers. The virtual servers are also created with their own independent operating systems. This enables the user to do enhancements like installing software on them. The VPS costs less than the dedicated server in terms of maintenance but more than shared hosting as the whole system is dedicated to one user.

So where does cloud hosting come in? Cloud hosting embraces the technology used in all the above web hosting methods but the major difference is that it provides better options. It solves a major problem experienced in the three web hosting methods described above.

If you have hardware that cannot handle the demands of your website the next possible option is upgrading the machine which is quite costly. On the other hand you may have a website that has more space and memory than it needs meaning these resources end up getting wasted. It gets wasted since in dedicated hosting whether you use it or not you still pay for the entire space and memory.

Cloud hosting unlike the others allows you to manage the use of resources like bandwidth, disk space, RAM and the CPU. Cloud hosting allows users to program the machine to automatically assign more resources when the application requires them. Consequently cloud hosting enables one to bill only the amount of resources consumed.

In other words this ability to scale a server for effective resource management is the major difference between cloud hosting and the above mentioned types of hosting.
